Dublin singer-songwriter Fiach Moriarty released his debut record So i in March 2010 to great acclaim leading Hot Pressto state that “instrumentally as well as vocally, So i is exceptionally resonant and richly textured with strings bringing a sense of the sublime to several tracks. Wonderful!” The album was immediately named Album of the Week on Ireland's national broadcaster, RTÉ Radio 1.
