For his third solo album - Foxlight the acclaimed singer Iarla Ó Lionáird delivers an impassioned and sublime set of personal songs, combining the twin urges to write more new material and yet also work with an intriguing set of collaborators. Ó Lionáird began writing new songs, secluding himself in his home studio on Herdman's Hill in remote Kilkenny. Joined by guitarist and producer, Leo Abrahams, the album took shape as Ó Lionáird and Abrahams split their time between rural Ireland and Abrahams' own studio in Bow, East London. These disparate settings and the varying tonality of the contributing artists make this a record that shimmers with versatility. Whilst rooted in certain traditions, it is also unclassifiable and refuses to be located in one genre or another. It's one of Ó Lionáird's most organic, naturalistic records to date. Instrumentation and layers are embedded in each song, but ultimately it's about Iarla's exquisite, sonically unique voice.
