“raw, soulful, often mesmeric, richly textured and lushly constructed...versatile persuasive vocals” - Mojo
The Breath is guitarist Stuart McCallum and singer Ríoghnach Connolly. Based in Manchester, their unique take on alt-folk journeys from lush, beguiling storytelling to uplifting, punch-the-air anthems. At its heart is Rioghnach’ s deeply soulful, utterly engaging, stop-you-in-your-tracks voice alongside Stuart’s understated brilliance and their exquisitely crafted, personal songs. Yet it’s the emotional depth of the songs and the remarkable connectionthe duo share on stage that make the Breath’s live performance so compelling. Joined by Luke Flowers (drums), John Ellis (piano) and Sam Vickery (bass), expect a performance that is ‘gentle and rolling, mountainous and anthemic... and emotionally charged”(fRoots).
