“Carry the Day: a richly layered, impressive debut album”

— The Irish Times

From the family that brought you two of Ireland’s most treasured singers, Frances Black and Mary Black, please meet Aoife Scott, daughter of the former and niece of the latter, the next generation. On her debut album, Carry the Day, Scott adopts the great Irish folk preoccupation with interpretation, carefully curating an album of songs that were either penned by herself or those she encountered that triggered personal reflection and meaning. The result is an album both modern in its youthful vibrancy and yet thoroughly traditional in its methods and its themes such as the social injustice with Aoife’s own 'We Know Where We Stand' - a timely examination of the Irish identity or Si Kahn’s What You Do With What You Got (made famous by true-blue Scottish folk legend Dick Gaughan)  

Carry the Day is a feel-good album by an artist not afraid to express her sense of wonder. Ireland itself acts as a muse to Scott, it’s language (she is bilingual), its history, the beautiful landscape of the West and the special spots of her hometown Dublin.  

She draws upon family and friends such as her brother Eoghan Scott, writing partner Enda Reilly, and musicians Conor Lyons, Michelle O’Brien, Eamonn De Barra, Cillian Doheny and Floriane Blancke - all incredible traditional musicians in their own right - to perform on all the many songs. Picturesque Stories, that Aoife tells so well.  

The album has been led by the already travelled "All Along the Wild Atlantic Way", a melodic pop poem to the stunning coastal trail along Ireland’s western seaboard which has joined the likes of Ed Sheeran and Hozier at the top of the iTunes singer-songwriter charts.
