The Whileaways world is one of harmonies and beautifully crafted original music.
Using American folksong as a starting point, the three-piece cut their own trail through the undergrowth of roots music. The band began life playing sessions in the folk melting pot of Galway city. Since their first release in 2013 they have performed on some of the most prestigious stages and festivals around, wooing audiences and reviewers as they go.
Each member – Noelie McDonnell (vocals, guitar), Nicola Joyce (vocals, ukulele), and Noriana Kennedy (vocals, guitar, banjo) is a force within the Irish circuit. Together their talents create a band bursting with charm and flair.
Their sound is true, their performances gloriously engaging. Prepare to be spellbound by The Whileaways.
“Hollers for a chance to be heard in a live setting, so rich is its lyrical tapestry” Irish Times ****
“I have always loved-almost above all else in music-harmony-and when it is of the standard purveyed by The Whileaways-and the songs are as good as they are, it is irresistible.” FATEA Records
“The arrangements are simple but brilliant, exactly what it needs to put their voices in true light.” FolkWorld
