Described as what can only be a cautionary tale (presumably to the “girl who finds him next”), Aleigh’s newest release comes on the back of a sold out upstairs Whelan’s show for a debut release last year and more recently a string of support shows for iconic Irish acts such as Brian Kennedy, Bagatelle and Christy Dignam.
Over recent years, Aleigh’s musical journey and passion has taken her back to her hometown of Dublin, where she restarted her musical guise in city hostels and performed acoustically to the bellwethers and aficionados of the burgeoning Irish music scene.
Despite being initially signed as a solo singer-songwriter, Aleigh realised quite early on that she was immediately more comfortable within a full band which allowed the variety of her self penned songs to alter between solitary ballads, jaunty rhythms and vivacious guitar driven alternative rock.
Having worked with producers such as Gavin Ralston (Silverwood Studios) and Fran McDermott / Eric Sharpe (AbbeyLane Studios) Aleigh’s latest offering “Boys Not Right” is a 2.37 minute riff driven, independent release of an honest tale which describes an incompatible past relationship that, well simply put, belongs in the past.
I’m sure it’s safe to say, most of us have been there…
