Aoife DeMille is an emerging artist from Co.Kerry. Her music explores rich and emotive imagery through folk infused, electro-acoustic sound design, reminiscing her childhood in Kerry whilst also observing her life now in Dublin. Working as a sound designer for multimedia installation and live electronic performance, Aoife fuses styles of ambient electronics, alt-folk singer-songwriting, and contemporary composition to form her distinctive sound.
Since graduating with a Bachelors in Music from Trinity College Dublin in 2019, Aoife has gone on to receive a number of awards from the Arts Council of Ireland for her work in electro-acoustic sound design, focusing on composition for multimedia installation and contemporary live performance.
She has spent the past number of years forging her career as an alt-folk singer-songwriter, releasing her first single, 'Did You Notice' in 2021. Aoife's performance accolades include performing as part of Draoi ensemble at Body&Soul festival and Electric Picnic in 2019, at Light Moves Festival in Limerick in 2021, at Still Space in Unit 44 in 2022, at Dublin Castle as part of the Fringe Festival in 2022, and as a support act for More Ease and Seth Graham in the Workman's Cellar in 2022.
Aoife's work explores themes of childhood, rural upbringing and culture, Irish landscape and nature, and loss and longing. Laced with emotion and personal insight, her music hopes to evoke similar responses from her listeners.
Aoife is set to release her debut EP Morning Fires throughout 2023. Weaving colloquial lyrical motifs with expansive vocal harmonies and a full band accompaniment, Aoife will showcase her unique and evocative musical style with this release.
Overall, her music acts as facilitator for emotional introspection—sound and visual journeys that delicately suggest but never instruct, her music invites her audiences to become co-creators in the experience.
