Marlene Enright captured the attention of Irish media in 2017 with the release of her debut record, Placemats and Second Cuts. In early 2018, the album was nominated for the RTE Choice Music Prize award alongside James Vincent McMorrow, Fionn Regan and Talos - the only solo female artist to be nominated for the award. 2019 promises new material and a new project from the Cork based singer-songwriter. A bare bones tour is set for this coming Spring - be one of the first to hear new material at its rawest and most enchanting.
Brilliantly played and superbly produced ambitious, free-flowing alternative pop songs a seriously accomplished debut album- **** The Irish Times
Debut album full of badass swagger and grit from the Cork singer-songwriter who knows her onions when it comes to the ebb and flow of modern Americana. The more you dig into this, the more you realised Enright's great gift for nailing a song's natural push and pull. - Jim Carroll, RTE Culture
