Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today’s tune is a new single from Janet Devlin, a 20-year-old singer-songwriter from Northern Ireland. Devlin rose to fame after appearing on The X Factor (UK) in 2011. Since then, she has released two albums, 2013’s Hide and Seek, which received a limited digital release through Pledge Music, and 2014’s Running with Scissors, which is available on iTunes and in stores.
Devlin recorded and released both Irish and English version of this song. “Suantraí Meisciuil,” or “Whisky Lullabies” as its English version is titled, is a song Devlin says she wrote “about childhood and growing up.”
