Having sung with Kíla, Niwel Tsumbu and contributed to Hozier’s platinum-selling debut album, Loah is now embarking on an ambitious solo career. Of Sierra Leonean-Irish origin, Loah has already performed her unique blend of folk and soul at all major Irish festivals – Electric Picnic, the Dublin Fringe Festival, and Body&Soul’s Shapeshifters Ball amongst others. In 2014, she released two songs/videos (The Bailey and Cortege), sold out her debut headline concert and appeared as soloist with the RTE Concert Orchestra in December. 2015 sees Loah’s first release along with an Irish and European tour. Don’t miss this, her culminating concert in Paris!
 
“Exuding a very exotic cool, we have a bit of a star on our hands.” (Hot Press)
“This music might have you thinking you’ve discovered an entirely new and wonderful genre.” (LeCool)
“A sophisticated, intelligent and completely intoxicating offering from Loah. This is an effortless marriage of soul, jazz and classical music.” (Goldenplec)
