'steadily emerging as a rising star on the Irish contemporary and alt folk scene' - Irish Times
Off the back of her Folk Alliance International live debut this past February, Ireland's most exciting new alt-folk artist Dani Larkin plans to release her debut album Notes For A Maiden Warrior on June 18th 2021. The long-awaited debut album makes its final voyage, containing a collection of 10 tracks including reimagined album versions of popular tracks such as 'Samson & Goliath', 'Bloodthirsty' and 'The Mother Within' and promises to be one of the most exciting contemporary folk albums this year.
The album is centred around the concept of lessons on how to be a warrior, how to create change in this world by learning from stories of old and from other realms, and how to navigate life - love, death, suffering, pain, strength and kindness. It is not intended to be instructional; it is as a set of notes in song form.
Recorded in Halfbap Studios, Belfast and co-produced by George Sloan this debut album Notes for A Maiden Warrior formally cements Dani Larkin's arrival onto the folk scene, and establishes herself as a contemporary folk artist to take notice of.
This album is being self-released digitally as well as physically on vinyl. Available to pre-order directly from Dani Larkin's website www.danilarkin.com.
