Carry the Day is the new debut album by Dublin singer Aoife Scott. The album was launched on Tradconnect in February 2016 and you can read that article here. The songs for the album were developed over the last year or so, with arrangements sketched out before she brought them into the studio. The core band featured Eoghan Scott on guitar (Whirlygig) , Conor Lyons on bouzouki and bodhrán (The Bonny Men) and Michelle O’ Brien on fiddle. It was also co-produced by Aoife.
This is track 4 from the album, a self-composition called Gypsy Warrior. She said : "I wrote this song about a friend of mine who inspired me with her strength, resilience and absolute giant heart. She is incredible and she truly makes the world a better place. I was in Germany on tour when the lyrics spilled out. Then I brought it to Enda where it became a song and it really came together in the studio when Conor and Eoghan started the marching groove which it still is today. The long outro symbolises the warrior's journey which continues on even after the song is finished. The Warrior is coming..."
