Linn, the people who brought you The Blue Nile, have done it again. This time, they intend to show off the quality of their high-tech audio products with probably the finest female voice to come out of Glasgow since Maggie Bell. Still just 21, Maeve has been creating quite a buzz since she stormed Celtic Connections three years ago. Many people have been looking forward to this release and they won't be disappointed with the folksy-country feel of opener, Old Greenwich Times, co-written with Ricky Ross. Other stand-out tracks include Swimming Upstream and Pray It Never Happens but Maeve's mournful, plaintive and utterly beguiling voice ensures there are no misses on this triumphant debut. --* * * * * Daily Express
Maeve O'Boyle first came to prominence in 2006 when she won a 'Danny' award at Celtic Connections. Later that year she won the Artist's category in the Daily Record National Talent Search. Testament to her mounting status was an entry into The Scotsman 'Scots Women of the Year' in 2007 and a recommendation by the Daily Record showbiz editors as 'One to Watch For'. In 2008, Maeve performed in London and Glasgow as part of The JD Set showcase and headlined a sell-out date at Glasgow's prestigious Oran Mor before accepting an invitation to perform at Live at Loch Lomond. Her performances nationwide include dates with John Cale (Velvet Underground) and Sandi Thom on her sold out UK tour.
