The Breath + Kirk McElhinney


Former Cinematic Orchestra guitarist Stuart McCallum and singer Rioghnach Connolly's new band brilliantly mix Irish folk influences with anthemic rock, electronica and nu jazz. 


Born out of the ferment of Manchester’s thriving music scene, The Breath is the new band project of former Cinematic Orchestra guitarist Stuart McCallum and singer and lyricist Rioghnach Connolly. Along with McCallum's fellow Cinematic alumni, pianist John Ellis and drummer Luke Flowers, The Breath mix Irish folk influences with mesmerising guitar riffs, anthemic themes and powerful hooks.  Building on McCallum’s distinctive soundscapes, Connolly's immensely powerful and soulful vocals deliver epic, lush and powerfully raw songs that are hypnotic and heart-achingly beautiful in equal measure.


“Contemporary folk meets Bat For Lashes” Jazzwise


Support is from acoustic guitarist Kirk McElhinney whose soulful lyrics and masterful playing has seen him take to the stage with folk legends such as Bert Jansch and Tommy Emmanuel. "Kirk's sound is a melting pot of sonic bliss" Nitin Sawhney
