“raw, soulful, often mesmeric, richly textured and lushly constructed…versatile persuasive vocals” – Mojo
“an affecting blend …. McCallum provides the grandeur and artifice and Connolly the intimacy and purity” – Uncut
“The Breath rolls across the senses like clouds caress low hills – always moving, changing, evolving; and utterly fascinating” – Folk Radio.com

 
The Breath is guitarist Stuart McCallum and singer Ríoghnach (pron. Ray-nuh) Connolly. Based in Manchester their unique take on alt-folk journeys from lush, beguiling storytelling to uplifting, punch-the-air anthems. At its heart is Rioghnach’ s deeply soulful, utterly engaging, stop-you-in-your-tracks voice alongside Stuart’s understated brilliance and their exquisitely crafted, personal songs. Yet it’s the emotional depth of the songs and the remarkable connection the duo share on stage that make the Breath’s live performance so compelling.
The Breath appear tonight presenting material from their brand new album, ‘Let the Cards Fall’ (Real World, 14 September 2018) a bewitching collection of honest, heartfelt songs written as a stream of poetic consciousness as likely to touch on childhood summers and first love as cultural dislocation, post-colonial injustices and grief.

Joined by Luke Flowers (drums), John Ellis (piano) and Sam Vickery (bass).
