“As a kid I was always in a hurry, just so excited to grow up. But then when I started to figure out what’s actually involved, I think I’m just not ready! That said, I reckon a lot of people feel like that, no matter what age they are!”
Following the out-of-the-box success of her debut covers EP – ‘Undercover Heartbreak’ – which charted Top 10 in the official Irish album charts when released back in April this year; Dublin teenager Saibh Skelly is set to release her first self-penned solo material.
New track ‘Grow Up’ was written in London and was once again produced in Dublin by Cormac Butler (Gavin James, The Academic, Pa Sheehy). Since her Rubyworks debut last year, Saibh has been steadily building her streaming profile and has been featured on New Music Friday, New Pop, Sad Songs and Pop Covers official playlists. She has 90k followers on Instagram, 6 million views on YouTube and is quickly building a following on TikTok with 3 million views already.
Saibh Skelly will be on tour this autumn with Lyra.
