ÁINE CAHILL

How did you start?

I started teaching myself keyboard from YouTube when I was 16, then I used to sing all my favourite songs in my bedroom! When I was 18 I started writing my own songs and just kind of went on from there! 🙂

Where are you based?

I’m based in Ireland, I live in a town called Cavan! My management and stuff are all based in UK though, so I’m doing some stuff over there too.

Please give an example of your music writing process?

I usually start with a title and work from there. I find it easier to write that way, sometimes I will be scribbling or doodling and think of an idea for a song based of a picture.

What are you working on right now?

I am always writing new stuff so there’s that. I have an EP coming out soon and I’ll be doing a music video etc! I’m so excited for it to be released!

What is your gear setup?

I’m not great with knowing gear to be honest haha, the main thing I’ve to bring to a gig is my ACS In-Ear Monitors! We’re doing mainly festivals at the moment so we just use the back line that is supplied. Our live set up is Piano, Violin and Drums if that’s what you mean haha.

What do you like to do outside of music and does it affect your music?

I like to draw loads, also I’ve been trying to read more. Both of those thing would help loads when it comes to writing!

How would you describe your music genre?

I’m defiantly Pop, but I have some jazzy vibes in there too.

Do you know any music theory?

I know very very basic stuff, in secondary school I studied music for a year but gave it up. That was before I took an interest in piano and singing..

What are your plans for the future?

I really want to do an album and go on tour again! Those are the main things in my mind at the moment! 🙂

How did you get into music?   

I was inspired by an acoustic performance Lady Gaga did on a radio show, I saw her and I said ‘I want to play piano’. I was a real sporty tomboy before that.

What are you listening to at the moment?   

I am listening to a lot of Aurora, the new Halsey album and always Lana Del Rey!

Who are your top 5 influences and icons?

Marilyn Monroe

Lady Gaga

Lana Del Rey

Marina & the Diamonds

Michael Jackson.

When are you playing next?

I’m playing tomorrow June 10th at Bushstock Festival in London, then June 23rd at Glastonbury and June 25th at Sea Sessions in Donegal.
