Woman Power Wednesday: Soulé

-What made you want to get into music? Was it something you’ve always had a passion for?
 

Music has always been something I wanted to do. Growing up I remember imitating The Spice Girls and TLC and wanting to perform like them. The older I got, the more drive I had to pursue music and to practice becoming a good songwriter too.

-What’s your opinion on the Dublin music scene at the minute? Do you think there’s a place for women in it? 

We are lucky enough to be in a golden time with the amount of talented Irish female artists. The Irish music scene is truly embracing female musicians of all genres at the moment and that’s amazing.

-What would you say is your biggest musical influence?

My biggest musical influence would have to be the great Chaka Khan. Her energy as a performer is so beautiful to see and really inspires me.

-What would you say has been your biggest career highlight so far? Do you have a certain goal in mind?

My biggest career highlight so far has been being nominated for 'Irish Song of the Year' at the Choice Music Prize Awards and playing on three major stages at this years Electric Picnic.

EXS - NotAnother Club Night

EXS - NotAnother Club Night

Sitting at the bar drinking Aperol Spritz at 11am on a Sunday morning, about to watch their friend Byron have his debut DJing at Panorama Bar, in arguably the worlds most respected club – Berlin’s Berghain. Emma Fraser [Nine Crows] and Mary Nally [Studio Drop] had a conversation about what it is about the vibe in that room and why it’s so hard to find at home. They also talked about their exs. Then they got wrecked and came home and decided to start a party.

 

A party not just for the sake of a party, but for the sake of a really really REALLY good party. A party with an attention to detail on collective things that make a night great - decent music, decent outfits, decent drinks and decent manners. 


We have partnered up with Mary Nally of Drop Everything, creator of some of Irelands most unrivalled and craic filled experiences like Confetti and No Way Back
We have been building our community for over six years now, so with the aim of creating an outlet for this community in mind we have decided to throw a party where all people can feel safe and welcome no matter what ethnicity, culture, gender, age, sexual nature or religion they might have. 


Our main room is thoroughly inspired by the club experience. A dark room and great tunes - it’s all about the music. We will be bopping the night away to the best beats from Byron Yates, Frank B and Breen.


Our side room, in the bar for a more colourful disco vibes. Drink a shaken shot and have a little boogie down on a table to Sally Cinnamon and Greg Spring.


This is a celebration of friendship, lovers, music, fashion, and Ireland.
So if you're looking for the best buzz around town, make sure to get down to EXS - NotAnother Club night in The Button Factory on April 15th, 2017.
