    SOAK/Bridie was born in Belfast, but grew up in Derry. She began to learn guitar aged 14, and produced her first collection of self-penned songs only a year later, before being ‘discovered’ via the Derry Playhouse’s Jammhouse in early 2012, when she was only 15 years old.

    Since then she has won the NI Chordblossom ‘Double A Side’ competition, been a finalist in the Spotify A&M Awards 2012, and gigged extensively. Hear her in Session for Dan on The Alternative.
