Julie Feeney’s appearance on the main stage at Italia Wave marked the Galway singer’s debut on the European outdoor festival trail.

She had been spotted by the Italia Wave bookers at the influential Eurosonic festival in Holland in January and invited to Florence.

“The audience were really amazing”, said Feeney about her show. “They were very open and fresh. My music is so bloody odd anyway but they managed to tap into it. They were clapping to songs like “Autopilot” which I’d never heard an audience doing before.”

She has commenced work on the follow-up to her Choice Music Prize-winning “13 Songs” debut with a 2008 release date in mind.

“I’m trying to see how many tracks I can record myself and I’m finding it’s much faster that way. I’m already well into the process – I recorded some children singing the other week for one of the pieces.”
