Grainne Hunt Short Info

Portuguese speaker, knitter, super-nanny, horse rider, makeup artist, skier, traveler, office worker – there are many strings to Gráinne Hunt’s bow but by far the strongest and most melodic is that of her music. Originally from Carrickmacross Co. Monaghan, Gráinne is a Dublin based singer songwriter, currently touring in support of her first release – Firing Pin – which came out in October 2015.

Better known perhaps for sharing the stage with, and lending her beautiful vocals to Glen Hansard, Mark Geary and Nicole Maguire she is regularly compared to Natalie Merchant, Tracy Chapman and Dolores O'Riordan, amongst others. Gráinne’s solo show is a balanced performance of impressive original material and beautiful Irish songs, accompanied by Gráinne's wonderfully understated guitar playing, giving her stunning vocals a place to soar.

With songs co-written with James Cramer of Tupelo and produced by Joe Chester, in the Living Room @ The Cauldron, this album is a long awaited release from the singer. Gráinne is joined on the album by James and Joe, along with Graham Hopkins, Lorcán O’Dwyer and Vyvienne Long. The beautiful artwork for the single and album was provided by Gary Reddin Ink.
