October 30th sees the release of ‘Home Thoughts’ on Vinyl. A new album
of covers from Irish singer songwriter Karrie (O’Sullivan Holmes) made with Grammy Nominated Guitarist/Producer Jimmy Smyth (Van Morrison, Moving Hearts, Bonnie Tyler, Chaka Khan, Roger Daltrey).
The idea was to record and perform established tunes by their favorite artists: reflecting the Zeitgeist, and using only the ‘bare bones’ instrumentation, thus highlighting Karrie’s remarkable voice. The result is a timeless collection of well-known songs transformed into beautiful stripped-down folk. “At first, Jimmy and I did this as a socially distant, social media experiment,” says Karrie.

“But as it took ‘legs’ of its own, I realized that the combination of our aesthetic, along with the reaction from people in lockdown, pretty much defined what an album is for. It’s a reflection in music of a certain time and place in our lives.” Jimmy Smyth: “During lockdown we thought it would be fun to perform songs that we love, with minimal instrumentation - just Voice, Guitar and Banjo - and put them up on Facebook as an artistic response to the despair and isolation people were experiencing. A simple Idea. With the best of intentions. It might
help: It can’t hurt.”

Karrie has had three Top 5 singles in Ireland, all of which will be included in a soon-to-be-released album. The tracks ‘I Don’t Hear You’, ‘I Love You The Most’ (both Number One on the RTE Airplay Charts) and ‘So Long Ago’ ( Highest chart position: Number Three) were all produced by Jimmy Smyth, cementing their musical partnership.

Tracks: Life On Mars / Yellow Brick Road / Rocket Man / Carolina In My Mind / Here Comes The Sun / You Wear It Well / Home Thoughts (From Abroad) / Promises / God Only
