Included on the BBC Sound of 2015 list, the XFM Great X-Pectations list and the HMV Ones to Watch 2015 list, and announced on the billing for SXSW 2015 - it looks like 2015 is set to be a big year for Bridie Monds-Watson (AKA SOAK).
The talented 18 year old singer-songwriter from Derry, has been performing since the age of 14, supported by her parents, who acted as management through her fledgling career. 'B a noBody' is her first release on Rough Trade Records. “’B a nobody’ was written about people who feel held back in life, or don’t know what their plan is,” comments Bridie. “It’s kind of, ‘if everybody is somebody, then nobody is everybody.”
The track is a refreshingly original honest and heartfelt assertion of teenage identity. Watch the video below:
