The debut solo album from one of the Ireland's most successful musicians. Fionnuala Sherry's Songs From Before features an enchanting collection of some of Ireland's most cherished and recognizable melodies. On the concept of the album Fionnuala says "for a long time I have wanted to record some of the beautiful traditional Irish songs that I grew up with. This year the dream became a reality!".
Following in the footsteps of her violinist grandfather, Fionnuala wanted to reflect the new and modern Ireland in her interpretation of some very old Irish airs including "An Cuilfhíonn" "My Lagan Love" and "Our Wedding Day" which is also known as "She Moved Through The Fair".
Fionnuala is no stranger to success in the music world. As one half of Secret Garden, she has achieved a series of massive milestones in her career including selling nearly 5 million albums, winning the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest and playing to hundreds of thousands of fans on sold out tours around the world. Together with Secret Garden composer Rolf Lovland, the pair have had their songs covered by a vast range of superstar artists including Barbra Streisand, Josh Groban, Westlife, Il Divo and Celtic Woman to name a few. Her impressive body of work prior to her success with Secret Garden included projects with The Chieftains, Bono, Chris de Burgh and Sinead O'Connor. She also has played with the Irish Film Orchestra on movie scores for "The River Runs Wild", "The Mask" and "A Room With A View".
"...Songs From Before is a shining example for her all inclusive musical heritage. The 10 pieces are a moving experience and inspirational beacon showing her in a new light."
