There are only 6 days left to support, and/or pre-order Irish singer/songwriter and EILE favourite Liv Monaghan’s new album, Under a Bruised Parisian Sky, which is her first full-length album, on the CrowdFunding platform, KissKissBankBank. 

“This is my first full-length album, after my first original EP, Beauty in the Park. There are eight songs on the album, which were whittled down from many more to fit into just one full day of recording at Aeronef studios in Paris”, says Liv.

The highly original, and mesmerising track, Passion Fruit Moons (above) was written and finalised about four weeks before they went into the studio this Summer.

Liv has included a great set of rewards for those who contribute, and is grateful for even the smallest donation.
