Since crossing the sea from her hometown of Belfast in 2008, Bronagh Monahan has certainly made her voice heard in Glasgow. The 22-year-old singer/songwriter began playing piano and singing at a young age, but since moving to the city Bronagh began to bring her own unique sound to its renowned music scene and is now one of Glasgow's fastest rising female vocalists.
Bronagh's early recordings were played by Jim Gellatly on Amazing Radio, who heralded: "what they lack in production, they make up for in musical quality". Bronagh was then featured on Pop Goes the Revolution several times, appearing in their round up of the year of unsigned talent.
Radio 1's Ally McCrae eventually spotted her vocal talents on her collaboration with Glasgow producer Fall, and featured her on his BBC Introducing show at the end of 2011. She soon found herself supporting the likes of folk hero and Grammy nominee, Ane Brun, at Glasgow's famous King Tuts and was one of the artists featured in this year's Communion Glasgow, a platform which previously launched the careers of Mumford and Sons and Laura Marling.
Having recently graduated with Honours in Music from the University of Glasgow, Bronagh has her sights set on a full-time career in the business.
With her debut E.P. ready for launch, Bronagh Monahan is a name you'll soon be hearing a lot more about.
