Derry based Americana, folk artist Reevah (AKA Aoife Boyle) is pleased to announce her new single ‘Older Now’ (Available Oct 04th) the first track taken from ‘A Different Light’ EP, due for release on April 24th 2020.
On the new track, Reevah said; “Often my songs are written from a real-life perspective, I like to write about situations that others can relate to. Letting the audience into my personal world.
For me ‘Older Now’ marks a change in many ways. I have started working with a full band and I really wanted that sound to be conveyed in this track. It’s a true reflection of my live set-up and performance as an artist. Recording this track was amazing, having the band onboard brought so much energy to the process, everything just came together really naturally.
When a track comes together it’s one of the most exciting things for me as an artist, I really wanted to capture this process with the studio Video and let the audience get a true sense of me as an artist.”
