Galway-based songwriter Elaine Mai is currently giving away 'Softly' as a free download on her Bandcamp - it's an amazing tune: acoustic guitar and chiming glockenspiel backed up by soothing, hypnotic harmonies, with her impressive vocals front and centre.
There's another song to check out on her Breaking Tunes, while she does some pretty neat covers too - here's one:
Elaine Mai - Telephone by scottdb
There's also a collaboration with poet and fellow Galwegian Laurie Leech available for free download from here
Mai plays support to Steve Mason in the Roisin Dubh this Sunday night (17th) so pop along early if you're going. She'll also be playing with The Kanyu Tree on the 30th and Wallis Bird on May 8th in the same venue.
