Enya: Echoes in Rain
Born into a musical family and raised in the Irish -speaking area of Gweedore in County Donegal , Enya began her music career when she joined her family's Celtic folk band Clannad in on keyboards and backing vocals. She left in with their manager and producer Nicky Ryan to pursue a solo career, with Ryan's wife Roma Ryan as her lyricist. Enya developed her sound over the following four years with multitracked vocals and keyboards with elements of new age , Celtic, classical, church, and folk music. She has sung in ten languages.
The less you tell people, the more they want to know. That maxim has never been more true than in the case of Enya, who — if you were to believe half of what you hear — only ventures outside of her Killiney castle once every seven years to bestow an album upon her adoring public, before disappearing back into the mist to the sound of crying angels. The truth is, Enya is kind of. She is here to talk about her forthcoming eighth album Dark Sky Island , and today she has been conducting her first Irish interviews in seven years.
