Irish Mythen at the me&thee
True power inspires awe, and Irish Mythen packs a lot of it  lyrical, musical, and personal  into a relatively small frame.

Mythen is a globetrotting troubadour  an Irish-born, contemporary Canadian folk artist whos been amassing accolades and achievements across several continents over the years. Her presence and charisma simply command attention, and regardless of where she takes the stage, she delivers a sonic and emotional experience that transcends language and location; that reaches the very core of what connects us. Its an experience that, in recent years, has earned her spots performing alongside Rod Stewart, Gordon Lightfoot, and Lucinda Williams and billings on major festival stages the world over.

Following a pair of earlier EPs, Irish cemented her spot as a performing powerhouse with her first two full-length offerings  2008s Sweet Necessity and 2011s Open Here; however, its since moving to Prince Edward Island and releasing her latest collection  a self-titled, statement-making third LP in 2014  that shes propelled herself to an impressive new plateau.

The ECMA 2015 Roots Album of the Year perfectly couples the two poles of her sonic sphere: a universally engaging and accessible brand on contemporary folk with a tinge of more traditional Celtic influence that stems from her proud heritage. The result is a sound thats truly timeless and transcending, anchored by her dominant and dynamic vocal prowess.

Irish draws her inspiration from all over. Its the people Ive met, the colour and shape of the land, the fact that you spend much of this life alone on the road she shares. All these things have crept into my songs.

The whirlwind of opportunities shes enjoyed since her last release  from new places visited to some high-profile creative collaborations  has certainly informed her recent output. I think its translated into a more mature form of writing, the artist muses  much more about the sound and mood of the album. Ill always be a wordsmith, the accomplished lyricist adds, but the other facets of my art have grown.

Perhaps most significant of those other facets is her live show  an impactful and impressive tour-de-force that finds Irish combining her contemporary and catchy anthems with traditional tunes borrowed from her homeland. All are woven together with a signature blend of edgy humour and heartfelt storytelling while her presence and performance magnetically draw eyes and ears towards the small-statured powerhouse on stage.

I want them to feel like it was not just about the music, but an overall experience, Irish says about what she hopes to deliver to her audience. I love feeding off of crowd and interacting with them. Thats why I rarely have set lists; I like to see and feel the audience and give them what they want.

She must be doing just that, as Irish has established herself as a staple at events like the Mariposa Folk Festival and Folk Alliance International Conference, and others continue to call. In just the last 12 months, Irish has closed out the Philadelphia Folk Festival, performing after the iconic Lyle Lovett, and had tens of thousands in her hands at Australias Woodford Folk Festival. On the back of the latter performance, she was even handpicked to open for Melissa Etheridges 2016 Australian run.

A reinvigorated drive and longstanding passion for performance will only push Irish Mythen further into the international eye, enticing listeners of all kinds to take heed. Once they do, theyre sure to be captivated and converted, joining the cavalcade and following this wandering talent wherever she may go next.
