Joy is Angie McLaughlin’s Single

The music proposed by this artist has an ancestral charm…atmospheric and nostalgic.

The voice of this talented artist is as delicate and captivating as the first snow falling on a meadow. Subtle and deep capable of speaking to the listener’s subconscious.

Joy is a ballad that hypnotizes you and keeps you focused listening to the beautiful words.

The guitar arpeggio is sweet and refined, a minimalist compositional approach that doesn’t make you feel the lack of anything.

When a song is beautiful, few things are enough to create magic. In this case, the collaboration with Martin Stephenson is absolutely successful and one feels that there is an artistic understanding between these two artists.

Joy gave me a moment of poetry and love that touched me a lot. A great find that I recommend to everyone.

Angie McLaughlin is a Scottish folk songwriter, vocalist and musician with strong connections to Donegal where her dad was from. She grew up in the west coast of Scotland and moved to Dublin for college. She then emigrated to San Francisco where she first focused seriously on her songwriting and vocals, learning operatic arias through The Community Music Centre in The Mission district.

On her return to Dublin in 2004, she joined forces with Gary Fitzpatrick and formed The Sick and Indigent Song Club who released four albums, ‘Live at the Ha’Penny’, ‘Inistioge Folly’, ‘Punch Drunk’ and ‘Shinbone Ally’ which received high praise from major publications such as The Irish Times, Hotpress and many more.

Her splinter group, Minnie and the Illywhackers allowed her to indulge in her passion for vintage pop and ukulele swing and the band released the album ‘Make Me Yours’.

McLaughlin is now embarking on her first solo project of 10 original songs which lead to the creation of her solo debut record ‘The Boy is Gone’ which will be due for release this year.

What began as a cathartic expression and a means of healing following the sudden loss of her husband, turned into an album of rich and authentically raw songs. ‘The Boy Is Gone’ was produced by Martin Stephenson (of the Daintees). McLaughlin is drawn to genres strong in storytelling and the influence of folk, country and the blues is evident in her music and lyrics.

Her first single titled ‘Joy’ is due to be released February 10th and to celebrate the release, she will be playing a single launch show in The Wild Duck, Dublin February 16th.

Stephenson said on working with McLaughlin:

Working with Angie McLaughlin was a no brainer for me, having known her for many years and being a fan of her creative ventures, she is a class A roots vocalist and songwriter, a very tuned in, talented, sensitive human being. What’s not to like.” Martin Stephenson (2022)
