Folk artist Dani Larkin has finally the release date for her debut album Notes For A Maiden Warrior. The 10 track record will be self-released on 18th June, 2021 and feature some reimagined versions of her previous singles “Samson & Goliath,” “Bloodthirsty,” and “The Mother Within.” The album itself was recorded at Halfbap Studios, Belfast, with George Sloan as co-producer.
So far in her music, Larkin has beautifully melded trad sensibilities with alt-folk production. Her sound resonates deep within, making you want to stare wistfully out at the bog or a dark, stormy sea. Notes For A Maiden Warrior imparts life lessons gleaned from folk tales and other sources, but Larkin doesn’t claim to be any sort of authority. She simply invites us along on her journey as she observes and learns from the world around her.
Along with the album release date, Larkin has also announced a headline Irish tour, playing in Limerick (co-headlining with Joshua Burnside), Galway, Dundalk, West Cork, Cork, Dublin, and a secret show in Belfast this November and December. Tickets will be on sale this Friday, 9th April at 10am.
