Nell Bryden – exclusive performance and interview
Nell Bryden sings Second Time Around for Culch.ie
You know the way you meet someone and just know you’ll like them? That was my experience with Nell Bryden. She followed me on twitter, I checked her profile, invited her for an interview and next thing you know she’s on the couch, singing and having a great chat. I could have talked to her for longer!
Nell’s story is fascinating. A hard working singer-songwriter who has an amazing voice, has financed her career to date through an extraordinary piece of luck and has a great personality to boot. We discussed her career, Irish music, travel, books, song writing, US politics – Nell has toured in Iraq , fashion and all sorts. Seriously, I had to cut the full interview by at least 15 minutes. It was like a TV show. I’ve rarely enjoyed talking to someone as much.
Nell is playing the Pavilion in Cork on June 26, Whelan’s in Dublin on June 30 and then July 11 and 12 with Duke Special in Wexford and Dublin., To be exact, she has loads of dates around the country. Catch her if you can.
Interview shot on May 23 by Steph and Niamh, the day before Nell’s performance at the Soul Picnic at Merrion Square. Dodgy editing done by me. Big thanks to Linda and Aoife from GoodSeedPR for the opportunity and of course to Nell herself. You rock 🙂 x
