Irish singer songwriter Aoife Doyle will release LOVE CONQUERS ALL, the fourth single from her upcoming album on 11th of February. A soulful song about love released just in time for Valentines Day.
‘LOVE CONQUERS ALL is about coming to a realisation that love truly is the answer to many of life’s problems and questions.’
Aoife Doyle is originally from Bray, Co. Wicklow, now living in Co. Clare. While she has been performing for many years, it was upon moving to the West Coast of Ireland that she found her songwriting voice.
“In Clare I had more quiet time to reflect. The lack of billboards, traffic and other superficial stimulation makes life a lot simpler. I think nature is the most primal form of creativity and living in the country and keeping a garden etc. you’re seeing the cycle of creation from seed to plant to harvest. Watching this cycle has helped me greatly to understand the nature of creativity as well as the time, attention and care you have to give to gain a fruitful harvest. And this learning has facilitated my songwriting.”
She grew up in a house steeped in traditional and folk music. She cites a wide and varied range of musical influences including Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Alison Krauss and Eva Cassidy, as well as Marvin Gaye, Tammy Tyrell, Joni Mitchell, Beyoncé, Declan O’Rourke, Ger Wolfe and Bjork, and echoes of this intriguing mix come through to various extents on different tracks on the album.
LOVE CONQUERS ALL was produced by the highly-regarded musician, arranger and producer Michael Buckley, as was the album, “one of my best musical decisions”. Doyle is joined by a stellar band on the track, featuring some of Ireland’s most in-demand musicians including vocalist Margot Daly, saxophonist Michael Buckley, trumpet player Ronan Dooney, pianist Johnny Taylor, hammond organist Justin Carroll, bassist Andrew Csibi and drummer Dominic Mullan.
LOVE CONQUERS ALL will be released on 11th February, and will be available on Bandcamp, Aoife’s website www.aoifedoyle.com and other online platforms.
LOVE CONQUERS ALL was recorded at House of Horns studio in Dublin.
