STAR-i-TUNES-front

 *NEW CD “STAR” OUT FEB 2015 

MS will be out on the road live ‘n unplugged for 2015 and will have a brand new CD of acoustic tunes in her back pocket for the summer.

She has been playing some shows around Ireland over the last few months and you can check details of upcoming shows on the MARiA SHiEL : GIGS  link at the bottom of the page.

 

Maria is no stranger to the live scene touring extensively with Galway based band Guava in the late 90’s / early 00’s, opening shows for The Walls and The Frames and holding regular residencies at Galway’s Roisin Dubh and Cuba.

With deep ancestral roots set firmly in the West of Ireland, the historical importance of songwriting and story-telling was a key part of her upbringing, and with a large part of her childhood spent in Bristol (UK) meant that an equal passion for electronic music also emerged.

She has spent the last 7 years producing electronic music and collaborating under various monikers, most notably MS44, and she has worked with various artists from all over the globe throughout Europe, Russia and the Americas, successfully spreading the message here at KYO; to ‘share’ and collaborate:

“In this slightly odd digital world that we are now living in, we can experience kindness without ever meeting or hearing a person. To share the want to be creative and innovative, to push boundaries when creating a piece of music over the airwaves and to do this with a person  you may never meet is a whole new world”

MS44 released her debut EP Road in 2012 with re-mixes of the lead single, Tonight’s the Night, in 2013 from Dublin’s EOMAC. She has received airplay on RTE’s Lyric FM and 2FM and you can buy the EP from i-tunes here: MS44 on i-tunes

 

 Maria Shiel will be gigging and belting out tunes of love, hope and woe round the country and in the US this year..
