Aoife O’Donovan

O’Donovan is best known as the lead singer of Crooked Still, as the vocalist on the Grammy-winning album “The Goat Rodeo Sessions” with Yo-Yo Ma, Chris Thile, Edgar Meyer and Stuart Duncan, and as a member of the folk noir trio Sometymes Why. The versatility and appeal of her voice led to collaborations across a wide variety of genres, from Alison Krauss to Dave Douglas.

Now, O’Donovan steps to the fore with her debut solo album, “Fossils.” Appropriately titled, the album is about her journey, which she says has been a natural process.

Check out a portion of her story below:

The thing about fossils is that they take a very long time in the making, and it’s not an entirely intentional process. The making of Aoife O’Donovan’s debut album “Fossils” has hardly been a glacial affair, but it has spent rather more than a decade forming about in her creative subconscious. It was time well-spent, for she’s crafted a beautiful, timeless record, the natural evolution of an accomplished singer and songwriter.
