Rachael Lavelle
Having stunned audiences supporting the likes of Lankum and CMAT and secured a nomination for Ireland's prestigious Choice Music Prize, I Love My Brick is thrilled to present Dublin singer/composer Rachael Lavelle at The Lubber Fiend, Newcastle Upon Tyne, as part of her first full UK headline tour.

Permeated with a voice so striking it could have been beamed from the heavens, Rachael's mesmerising craft takes in everything from soaring avant-pop to taught, jazz-tinged electro minimalism. Honed over a decade which also saw her open for Villagers and Anna B Savage, her eclectic, playful and utterly absorbing sound was finally afforded full reign with the release of debut album Big Dreams in November 2023. With influences ranging from Joni Mitchell and Björk to Debussy and Rave, this stirring record embodies the frustrations and isolation felt by a young woman negotiating the pitfalls of adulthood - its narrative touching on social pressures and a quest for purpose, as well as online culture and the vapidity of lifestyle influencers and dating apps.

A word-of-mouth sensation, Big Dreams' excellence was reflected in its Album of the Year nomination at the 2023 Choice Music Prize (essentially the Irish Mercurys), rubbing shoulders with revered acts such as CMAT, Grian Chatten, The Murder Capital and eventual winners Lankum.

On a personal level, I first happened upon Rachael at a show in Manchester back in 2021. From the very first notes I was completely spellbound, and after about two songs had decided I'd endeavour to make a North East headline show happen. It remains among the most captivating introductions to an artist I've experienced, and - whether you're familiar with her music or a total newcomer - I hope you'll enjoy a similar sensation!
