AOIFE is from Gweedore in Co. Donegal. The traditional feel of 'Calm the Soul' needed the haunting sound that Aoife brings to so many of the traditional Irish songs that she sings. She has produced a number of albums, has toured and performed in the US, Japan, Europe and has recorded with other artists in various musical genres. It was lovely to meet her during the summer when she travelled to Galway to record the first verse of the song.
Appropriate journey, choose the path... what does this mean? Do not stand still — a young person cannot stand still! — and journey. This means go toward something; because a person can move and not be one who journeys, but a “wanderer”, who roams, roams, roams through life... But life is not made for “roaming through”, it is made to “journey through”, and this is your challenge!
