Sue Rynhart Signals Album Cover

'Signals' is a collection of new songs by Sue Rynhart. Drawing on Classical and Jazz traditions, Sue places her precise, delicate voice in the starkest, most revealing of settings. Her songs are both soulful and severe, a fine fusion of the avant-garde and the emotive.

"These are beautifully sculpted vignettes that seduce on multiple levels. She's only two albums in, but already Rynhart sounds like one of the most original emerging voices in the hazy world where folk, improvisation and contemporary song entwine" - All About Jazz

“One of our most exciting young composers.” RTÉ Lyric fm 

Sue Rynhart Voice, Layered Vocals, Recorders, Lyre, Mbira

REVIEWS

'Signals' is a collection of new songs by Sue Rynhart. Drawing on Classical and Jazz traditions, Sue places her precise, delicate voice in the starkest, most revealing of settings. Her songs are both soulful and severe, a fine fusion of the avant-garde and the emotive.

“Songs that sound at once ancient and modern, with echoes of folk and early music, contemporary jazz and the avant garde, recalling Theo Bleckmann, Bjork and a hint of Joni Mitchell.” **** The Irish Times

"Signals really is one of the most exciting, rewarding and stimulating albums I've heard so far this year " - Folk Radio UK

"A rare talent." - RTÉ

"It's the haunting beauty of her voice that leaves a lasting impression." - 4.5 Stars/5 All About Jazz

"Crystalline Voice" - Sunday Times

An absorbing collection... infused with her inventive improv...” Jazzwise

"Forging an exquisite midpoint between delicate and forceful, jazz and classical, as well as contemporary and canonical sonic realms, her emotionally-dense avant-garde craft rewards an attentive ear and repeated listen." -The Thin Air​

"Watch out for angel voice Sue Rynhart" - Irish Times

"Beautiful vocalist...wonderful composition." - BBC
