Roisin El Cherif – Half A Life

Part Irish, part Palestinian, the Galway girl Roisin El Cherif has turned in stunning live performances across the country, solidifying claims that she is one of the most promising singer-songwriters to watch in the live circuit, among her fellow luminaries. Her warm voice and carefully calibrated songwriting captures the imagination and captivates the listener.  

During the making of her new EP, to be released in the Summer of 2018, Roisin was approached by a very impressed Ken Callait, producer of one of the most significant albums ever released, Fleetwood Mac: Rumours to attend ArtistMax – an LA based three day mentoring and songwriting workshop where she upgraded her songwriting style.  

Says Roisin of the new single ‘Half a life’:  “Half a life came from feeling very low about loving but not living. Sometimes you can give so much into a place, a person, a job, a feeling or whatever floats your boat; to realise you are only living half of what you could be. Then doubts of who you are and what you want take over. It’s something I’m learning. What you want and what is meant for you, don’t always align”.
