"Aoife Corcoran’s soulful and lusty vocals kicked off the night in impressive mode. Accompanied by guitar and bongo drums, she sang torch songs with the finesse of Cat Power and suited the intimacy of the venue perfect-ly" (The Nationalist).

Aoife started 'tinkering around' with songwriting as a child, writing little poems and rhymes. Not having access to the usual songwriting tools like the piano she always yearned for, directed her towards using just her voice and imagination which is how she still mostly writes .... usually while driving her car! Her songs tend to tell stories or describe real observations or occurences, and she likes the lyrics to pay their way as much as the melody.

Influences include a wide range of artists such as Tom Waits, Nancy Sinatra, Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen, The Killers, Declan O'Rourke and many many more, with ideas picked up from most things she listens to or reads. She performs both acoustically and with a band.
Recent gigs include a residency in The Underground at The Music Factory in Carlow, an Eist Music gig in Portlaoise, Eamonn Doran's in Dublin, and the Eigse Arts festival. She has been spending time in the recording studio this year and releases her debut album in the Autumn.
