“Doyle’s singing is coming from a deeper, more natural place too, with a feeling for the blues learnt from Billie Holiday and the rare ability to improvise vocally.” - Cormac Larkin, The Irish Times
The Aoife Doyle Band officially formed in 2010. Since then they have travelled the length and breadth of Ireland performing to critical acclaim.
Having released their debut album ‘This Time the Dream’s on Me’ in August 2013, the group have been busy performing and recently played to a sold out audience at their official album launch in Dublin. Since its release, the album has received a lot of praise and has been a regular feature on Lyric FM’s ‘Blue of the Night’ and ‘Jazz Alley’ as well as Dublin City FM’s ‘Night Train’.
Their repertoire consists of songs by Bob Dylan to Harold Arlen. Which they have arranged in a way that aims to stay true to the lyric and the melody, as the composer originally wrote it.
“Her swinging quartet includes some of the best young players on the Dublin Scene.” - Cormac Larkin, The Irish Times
“Aoife Doyle is up there with the best of them.” - Grainne Farren, Irish Independent
