Having lived in Australia for a decade, Irish born singer-songwriter Áine Tyrrell rewrites what is imaginable every step of the way. Whether she is captaining her infamous 1966 Bedford Tour Bus or whether she is carving a unique musical path melding her own Irish roots from the ancient limestone rocks of Country Clare with her respect of the red dirt roads of 60,000 years of Indigenous culture in Australia, she is doing it all to her very own beat. It is no surprise then that The Australian warned early on that “Tyrrell’s incredible journey is one you’d be well advised to follow.”
As Áine’s music appeal grows internationally, her first recognition of her talents in America have been represented by being selected as an official showcase artist for the International Folk Alliance.
Her fresh and innovative rewriting of the rule book in song structure and composition has not gone unrecognised Internationally either. Following the release of the single “In This House” in 2019 with over 18,000 entries Tom Waits voted her not only as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, but she received the much-coveted honourable mention in the Singer-Songwriter Category. Her exceptional musicianship and an equally deft touch with a killer hook or a heartrending lament has also garnered critical acclaim from national radio outlets in both Ireland and Australia with multiple radio appearances on ABC Radio, RTE Radio, Double J Radio, and BBC NI Music.
