Irish Mythen, singer, songwriter, recording artist and award nominee was born and bred in Ireland. With four albums, including the ECMA-nominated Open Here, Irish has shared the stage with the likes of Richie Havens, Sylvia Tyson, The Dubliners, Shane MacGowan, Gordie Sampson, Matt Andersen, and the list goes on. Her live performances are a thing of wild emotion as she pours heart and soul into every word she sings. She has a way of delivering her songs that leave you in awe of her vocal talent and remembering the show, the songs and the performer long after you’ve walked away.
Irish says: "(Prince Edward Island) creates music and musicians, art and artists. I found a shift to take things more seriously when I moved here." And she did just that. Her last album, the self-titled Irish Mythen, gained her recognition around the globe with nominations and wins coming from Music PEI, East Coast Music Association, Folk Alliance International and SOCAN. Write-ups in Australian Guitar Magazine, the Rolling Stone, and a plethora of online publications worldwide have helped plant Irish firmly on the map of 'Must See Artists'. Her latest album is Little Bones.
