Niamh Crowther – Little by Little

NC_RingMaster Review

Folk rock/pop with a beaming smile, that is Little by Little, the new single from Irish singer/songwriter Niamh Crowther. Gripping feet and imagination from its first vibrant breath, the song is one of those feel good moments which continues to linger, warming the soul long after it has taken its physical leaves. The successor to the well-received single Origins, Crowther’s new flirtatious shuffle suggests she is well along the path to big rewards.

Crowther first came to prominence in Ireland when aged sixteen she beat over 15,000 other young people to claim the prestigious Irish Youth Music Awards. Concentrating on her school exams first, with most of 2014 devoted to successfully completing her Leaving Certificate (A Levels), Dublin hailing Crowther eventually went into the studio with Tim Martin (The Corrs, The Commitments, Declan O’Rourke), emerging with both Origins and Little by Little. Her eighteenth birthday also saw her on stage with Richie Sambora at the Olympia theatre in Dublin; so it has been a heady time on all counts for the emerging talent over the past couple of years or so, the garnering of over 130,000 streams on Spotify whilst having her music play listed on national Irish radio further success; all adding to good times sure to continue with the release of Little by Little.

A stroke of Crowther‘s guitar leads in her immediately alluring voice, the pair uniting as understated but firm beats add to the rising infectiousness of song and craft. Soon into a lively stroll which has feet tapping as if on puppet strings, the song seems to relish the tangy lilt of Crowther’s enticing voice and her instinctive melodic prowess, raising its energy and heart with each passing kiss of harmony and tenacious canter of rhythmic catchiness.

Though not necessarily in sound, there is a definite Kirsty MacColl like poise and invention to the songwriting and swing of the song too, a rich lure making up part of the refusing to go away majesty of the single, that and simply the organic virulence cast and fuelling the festivity.

Niamh Crowther is the name; expect to hear a lot more of it wherever you are in the world.

Little by Little is released on October 23rd.
