Following the championing of his first two releases by the likes of RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, 98fm and the Sound Sniffer, Caoivín returns with his third single “The Space Within”, an exploration of the theme of introspection featuring a unique blend of traditional Irish music and contemporary elements.
The track will be released on all streaming platforms from Wednesday October 27th
Caoivín (pronounced “Kwee-veen”) is the pseudonym of Dublin-based producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Caoimhín Mac Uaid.
Born into a musical family, Caoivín began playing traditional Irish music at the tender age of 5 and spent the majority of his early childhood summers travelling to and from various different fleadhs and music weeks.
In his late teens and early twenties, the musician began to develop an interest in a wide variety of other genres outside of the traditional Irish music realm which led him to discover bands and artists such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, DARKSIDE, JJ Cale, Bonobo, Khruangbin, Tinariwen and many others.
The Caoivín project takes influence from the range of musical styles which the artist has been exploring from that point up until now, while being rooted at the same time to the long unbroken lineage of traditional music on which he was reared.
