Fresh from a 16 date UK tour supporting Will Varley, Dublin’s Ailbhe Reddy got together with the guys from Basciville to perform a beautiful cover of the Ryan Adams classic ‘Come Pick Me Up’ ahead of her gig at Whelans on Friday 23rd November.
Check out their version below:
Ailbhe has been making huge waves in her native Ireland after releasing her debut EP ‘Hollowed Out Sea‘, which included her break out single ‘Distrust‘ that garnered critical acclaim and over 1.5 million streams on Spotify. She went on to feature on almost every major Irish festival line up in 2016 including Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Hard Working Class Heroes and Other Voices.
Ailbhe started 2017 by releasing her single ‘Relent’ winning critical acclaim from the likes of Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, Earmilk and Wonderland Magazine. She also performed a stunning set for Irish TV show Other Voices in Dingle before performing sold out shows in Dublin, London and Toronto. That summer she featured on many of the coveted UK festival line ups, such as The Great Escape, Glastonbury, Latitude and Cambridge Folk Festival.
She also signed with boutique London-based publishing label BDi Music before finishing her year of touring with a headline show in St Pancras Old Church, London. To start 2018 Reddy released new single ‘Nothing to Doubt’ to excellent reviews and Spotify playlisting. It was featured on BBC Introducing mixtapes and on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 show, where he called her a ‘fast-rising Irish artist’.
