Event description

Description

Mercury Mouth combine tight musicality with a genre-bending style, producing songs with soaring heart and thinly-veiled dark underpinnings revealing fragments of influence from Nick Cave to Pink Floyd to Kate Bush.

Gráinne’s ethereal vocals, have been described, at times, as being reminiscent of Florence Welch and Natasha Khan, creating an unmistakably original and idiosyncratic sound, a singular fusion of jazz and folk which Gráinne has been refining for years. Gráinne Cotter is originally from Co. Clare and grew up in a musical family where she was encouraged to play the violin. She discovered a love of jazz and singing in college and was given the opportunity to study in Berklee College Boston for a summer. This combined with some time spent living in Paris greatly influenced Gráinne and set her on the road to finding and honing her own individual sound.

Gráinne moved to the cultural hub of Galway where she assembled some collaborators who worked with her on her debut album Tides, released in 2018. Tides was well received by Irish media and lead to slots at The Electric Picnic, Other Voices and Féile na Bealtaine, as well as several of her tracks being added to RTÉ 1’s playlist.

To celebrate the release of her single “Worlds Apart” Gráinne is embarking on an Irish tour and hopes to play further dates in Europe this upcoming year. Gráinne will be performing in The BlackGate Galway(Oct. 19th), Gallery Café Westport(Oct. 25th), Athy Arts Centre(Nov. 8th), Workman’s(Nov.15th) and The Hole in the Wall Kilkenny(Nov.22nd).
