‘Individually they are both talented singers but when they sing together, the audience are enchanted…. The harmonies, the chemistry…. Simply mesmerising’
Veteran Irish songwriter Kieran Goss and singer Annie Kinsella released their debut duo album: 'Oh, the Starlings’ on 1st March 2019.
Goss has long been considered one of Ireland’s greatest songwriters. Together with singer and artist Annie Kinsella, who has joined him onstage on his recent tours, they have enchanted audiences with their live performances and won rave reviews.
Recorded in New York in Spring 2018 with eight time Grammy winning engineer Kevin Killen at the helm (David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, U2, Elvis Costello), Oh, The Starlings has been described by songwriter Rodney Crowell as : 'So good, it¹s heartbreaking... The record itself feels like an old friend.'
With songs, stories and harmonies that transport the listener to another world, this is music from the heart, for the heart… A show to make you laugh and cry… A show to move you with its honest beauty… A show not to be missed.
“‘Oh, The Starlings’ is a stunning debut; an astonishing, genre-defying piece of work… I’m confident that it will find its way on to “Best Of” lists when we look back on the recordings that moved us in 2019.” [Irish Music Magazine]
“‘Oh, The Starlings’ is a thing of quiet beauty.” [Folk and Tumble]
