Rhirhi is an 18 year old unsigned singer/songwriter who grew up on the Isle of Wight. Rhirhi started writing songs in her early teenage years and started teaching herself guitar at 15. With a background in choral music and inspired by the likes of The Beatles, The Velvet Underground and Dodie, her music is calming and lyrically captivating. Being described as ‘gentle, almost haunting’ by BBC Introducing, it’s sure to pull at your heartstrings. Rhirhi has played the Isle Of Wight Festival in recent years, alongside other major Island events such as Ventnor Fringe and Isle Of Wight Pride, gaining local recognition and following. Rhirhi released her debut EP ‘The rush isn’t real’ onto streaming services in April 2022 and has recently released her EP ‘If you need a minute or two’ in November 2022, with songs from each played on BBC Introducing Solent. With plans to release an album in the next year, Rhirhi is only starting to embark on her musical journey and would love it if you could join her. ♫♪♪
Kieran Snell: I mostly play at open mic nights in Winchester and Southampton. Some of the songs I plan on playing were written for my old band grunge band Etius, my more recent songs sound a bit more folk/singer-songwriter.
