After a busy end to 2016, including an appearance at The Other Voices Festival, Marlene Enright is set to release her forthcoming debut solo album, ‘Placemats and Second Cuts’, on March 24. The Cork based singer-songwriter, whose sound is that of modern roots music juxtaposed with contemporary pop, has announced an Irish tour in support of the album.

Marlene says,“Placemats and Second Cuts was written and recorded on-and-off over a year. Hindsight has made me realise that it’s a much more self-reflective album that I initially had realised. It speaks of self-doubt, dancing the fine line between feeling comfortable in your own skin and feeling totally lost at sea, indecisiveness, the battle between strength and weakness, passion and apathy, belonging and isolation and self-acceptance.”

The release of ‘Placemats and Seconds Cuts’ on March 24 follows the success of singles ‘123’, ‘Alchemy’, ‘Underbelly’ and ‘The Water is Hot’, seeing the singer’s star steadily rise, as Ireland embraces her folk tinged, contemporary sound.

Catch Marlene Enright at Levis Corner House, Ballydehob on Friday, March 3 or at The Mariner, Bantry on Saturday March 25.
