Loah is Sallay Matu Garnett, a singer songwriter of Sierra Leonean and Irish origin.
The Mystères. The Invisibles. Intermediaries for a distant Bondye. Spirits of Haitian Vodou. Loah grew up with the classical combination of Maynooth and West Africa.
Instead of a TV all she had was a piano to keep herself entertained, which combined with a solid classical training on violin and voice resulted in a uniquely talented musician from a very early age. While at Trinity College, she collaborated with future members of the likes of Little Green Cars, Slow Skies, and I Have A Tribe, as well as singing with Kíla, Niwel Tsumbu and Trinity Orchestra’s early pop endeavours. She also contributed to Hozier’s platinum selling debut album, co-writing the song “Someone New”.
