Ensemble Music is extremely proud to present the long-awaited launch of Loah’s debut EP This Heart, and her first Dublin headline show in almost 2 years!
Ever since she first landed on the scene 3 years ago, the Irish/Sierra Leonean ArtSoul singer has been hailed as one of Ireland’s most unique musical prospects – performing at Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, the National Concert Hall, Vicar Street, Other Voices, SXSW, and in Paris and New York despite not having a single official release to her name.
In that time she’s developed a loyal following, while carefully crafting her songs into a distinct sound, bringing together her West African roots, classical training, funk/soul songwriting, and her supergroup of jazz musicians to create a totally singular style she calls “Art Soul”.
The “This Heart” EP is the culmination of that process – one which has prioritised mature reflection over haste – and it is with great pride that we are finally releasing her first record into the world. We hope you’ll join us.
Special guest Farah Elle will open for Loah on the night!

“Her music has elements of soul, funk R&B and rock, and she’s also rightly proud of her roots” – John Oseid, Forbes
“Her stirring songs reflect her diverse roots… Loah is a conduit between two cultures.” – Linsey Rhoades, Village Voice
