Rain - How Beautiful The Sound, Mairéad’s latest release, was created over quite a long period of time. With the responsibilities of parenthood now taking center stage the album was produced over three periods. Working with her old friend, respected producer and collaborator Jimi Zhivago in New York and then recording a second set of songs in LosAngeles with Jim Goodwin, Mairéad stepped up to the producing helm with huge support from her trusted studio engineer Chris Fuhrman to create an Album of work that felt the most reflective of her true self. These years also saw much loss and heart break. This is very much reflected in the work. Songs of refuge, acceptance, hope after tragedy and existentialism are the themes of this deep wide ocean of music.
