SOAK has won widespread praise, and comparisons ranging from Laura Marling to Cat Power, for her textured tales of adolescence, family and friendship. Just 19 years old, Bridie Monds-Watson has been performing in her home of Derry since the age of 14, where she’d split her time between studying, the local skate-park, her burgeoning songwriting and touring in the school holidays. Soak’s debut album “Before We Forgot How To Dream” was released in June 2015 on Rough Trade / Beggars to critical acclaim, shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize, and won the Choice Music Prize Album Of The Year in Ireland.
