Subtle evolution defines Vyvienne Long’s musical work between her years collaborating and touring with Damien Rice and her transformation into a composer, songwriter and arranger in her own right. Her cello and piano-based songs found critical acclaim with the release of her debut album Caterpillar Sarabande in 2010. Beautifully disarming and intensely personal, her work has been in demand for soundtracks in Ireland and internationally since, including Kirsten Sheridan’s “Dollhouse”, the Icelandic documentary “The Future Of Hope” and RTÉ’s drama series “RAW”. Admired as a compelling vocalist and songwriter of incisive wit, critics have drawn comparisons with Björk, Tori Amos and Joanna Newsome. In 2013 Vyvienne followed up with the release of her live album Vyvienne Long Live with the Balanescu Quartet, masterfully arranging her songs for the String Collision tour and subsequent recording. In the same year she toured with the eclectic New Triangle (Niwel Tsumbu, Roger Doyle, Vyvienne Long) and recorded an EP of Beatles covers to mark the 50th anniversary of their visit to Dublin in 1963. In 2014, Vyvienne joined Irish super group DFF, who’s music is captured in the exuberant ‘Pouric Songs’. Vyvienne is a regular guest with producer and DJ Kormac following their collaboration on his album Doorsteps, and by request has appeared with artists such as Ed Sheeran in Dublin’s 3 Arena. Currently recording her second solo studio album, Vyvienne has also been appointed composer for Trish Mc Adams feature, End of Romance.
