Singer/songwriter Blánid is a fresh new voice on the UK music scene. Hailing from Ireland, she fuses indie folk, jazz and modern tones. With a hauntingly powerful voice and confessional style, she etches unforgettable stories on the listener's ear. In early 2019 she launched into the indie-folk scene gathering a huge social following with her unique interpretations of both modern and classic songs, which have accumulated over 300,000 total views on Instagram in 2020 alone. Fusing Cohen-esque lyricism and rich, soaring vocals, she has already attracted the attention and support of BBC Introducing South West and BBC Radio Kent after releasing europop classic 'Numa Numa' in February 2020.
Blánid releases her debut single in March 2021 which will pave the way for an amazing year. As a breath of fresh air to the music scene she is one to watch.
