[FEATURE]: Enya

Sunday, May 2, 2010


I guess this is my very first post about her. I had three of her albums stock in my hard drive but I guess I wasn't been able to feature any of her music until today. I don't know if you know anything about her but I doubt if you don't know any of her works or even listened to one. Now if you're wondering what I'm saying will read this.

(Info credits to wikipedia) Eithne Ní Bhraonáin better known as Enya, is an Irish vocalist, Instrumentalist & composer. She began her musical career in 1980, when she briefly joined her family band Clannad, before leaving to pursue her solo career.Shortly afterward, her 1988 album Watermark propelled her to further international fame and she became known for her unique sound, characterised by voice-layering, folk melodies, synthesised backdrops and ethereal reverberations.She continued to enjoy steady success during the 1990s and 2000s; her 2000 album A Day Without Rain sold 15 million copies and she was named the world's best selling female artist of 2001. She is Ireland's best-selling solo artist and is officially the country's second-largest musical export after the band U2. Her album sales stand at 70 million as of 2009, with over 26 million in album sales in the US. Her work has earned her, among other things, four Grammy awards and an Academy Award nomination. She has performed in 10 different languages during her career thus far. 

Still wondering who she is? Well, here's the shortest info I can give, she is actually the person behind most of the soundtrack & musical background of the well famous movie The Lord of the Rings trilogy. In the New Age world of music, she is the most well known for being able to showcase her talent in the whole world that even got her won many awards including Grammy's.
