‘Song of the Sidhe’

Music Industry Reviews for ‘Song of the Sidhe’

“When presented with an album like Lia Scallon’s outstanding and glorious new release, Song of the Sidhe, it’s best to listen to its utter majesty in its entirety first, to allow all that has been created to sink in and fully flow within your energies. Scallon’s channelled vocals of the Faeire realm are so moving, so passionate and so deeply felt, that they will move you to tears of absolute bliss. At times, the mystical majesty is literally stunning. I found it difficult to move whilst listening to one of the most powerful and inspiring pieces  ‘Stone of Destiny‘, and nearly forgot to breath!  Song of the Sidhe is by far Lia Scallon’s best work. Albums like this are a complete treasure. Brilliantly produced, lovingly created, it is an album that demands to be part of the top shelf of your musical greats.”    Read Full Review

“Lia Scallon’s Song of the Sidhe is a musical exploration of the mythic world of Faerie and its connection to humanity. This is a stunningly crafted, richly and deeply textured recording featuring the artist’s amazing vocal talents as well as a host of instrumentalist guest artists. Trying to encapsulate in my brief available words, the magic that is contained in this album is impossible. For those who believe, this album will be a revelation, as Scallon’s vocals paint a passionate, yet somewhat sorrowful portrait of hope against despair. Powerful but also sublime, the music and vocals are beguiling in their beauty.”

“Celestial songstress Lia Scallon, long acclaimed for her unique vocals, visits the world of the People of the Mounds on her new Celtic foray, ‘Song of the Sidhe’, in which the secrets of the Otherworld are revealed. I learned much of this supernatural world as I listened to the eight tracks of ethereally blissful, haunting and breathtaking music. This is a record that you can put on and just disappear in the music, whether you be human or fairy-folk. On all tracks the music is lush and warmly textured. The story, timeless. This album is highly recommended.” Read full review

“As she did on The Luminous Pearl, vocalist Lia Scallon, redefines New Age vocal music on Song of the Sidhe, a concept album rooted in the mysticism of the land of Faerie, that speaks of the need for these mythical creatures to re-emerge now to aid us in healing a broken world. Singing in a fusing of her “Language of Light” with the language of the Faerie kingdom itself, Scallon transports the listener on a journey into the realm of myth and legend, suffused with beauty, sadness, and a sense of urgency. Supported by world-class musicians, and channelling the spirit of Tea Tephi, High Queen of the Irish Faerie Kingdom, she takes the listener deep into ages-old stories, brought alive through beautiful music and haunting vocals.”
Bill Binkelman,, Zone Music Reporter

“Long-time readers will know that I’ve been enchanted with Lia’s long-running series, “Sounds of Sirius”.This new album is even more marvellous. Lia has produced a magical album that will tug deeply at your heartstrings. Music lovers everywhere will feel the power she evokes through these healing frequencies. Be sure you reserve a full hour to do your first listen to this album, so you can absorb all the magic of this wonderful musical experience.”  Read full review

“In her album Song of the Sidhe Lia Scallon opens musical pathways to the Sidhe, the “Shining Ones” of the Celtic otherworlds. May they dance into your life through the portal of these songs.”
Jeremy Berg, author of Faerie Blood; artist for the Card Deck of the Sidhe

“Lia Scallon’s previous two albums received many awards and nominations, and I would expect Song of the Sidhe to be just as successful.”
