Enya

With her blend of folk melodies, synthesized backdrops, and classical motifs, Enya created a distinctive style that more closely resembled new age than the folk and Celtic music that provided her initial influences. Enya is from Gweedore, County Donegal, Ireland, which she left in 1980 to join the Irish band Clannad, the group that already featured her older brothers and sisters. She stayed with Clannad for two years, then left, hooking up with producer Nicky Ryan and lyricist Roma Ryan, with whom she recorded film and television scores. The result was a successful album of TV music for the BBC. Enya then recorded Watermark (1988), which featured her distinctive, flowing music and multi-overdubbed trancelike singing; the album sold eight million copies worldwide. Watermark established Enya as an international star and launched a successful career that lasted well into the '90s.

Enya (born Eithne Ní Bhraonáin) was born into a musical family. Her father, Leo Brennan, was the leader of the Slieve Foy Band, a popular Irish show band; her mother was an amateur musician. Most important to Enya's career were her siblings, who formed Clannad in 1970 with several of their uncles. Enya joined the band as a keyboardist in 1980 and contributed to several of the group's popular television soundtracks. In 1982, she left Clannad, claiming that she was uninterested in following the pop direction the group had begun to pursue. Within a few years, she was commissioned, along with producer/arranger Nicky Ryan and lyricist Roma Ryan, to provide the score for a BBC-TV series called The Celts. The soundtrack was released in 1986 as her eponymous solo album.

Enya didn't receive much notice, but Enya and the Ryans' second effort, Watermark, became a surprise hit upon its release in 1988. Enya spent the years following the success of Watermark rather quietly; her most notable appearance was a cameo on Sinéad O'Connor's I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got. She finally released Shepherd Moons, her follow-up to Watermark, in 1991. Shepherd Moons was even more successful than its predecessor, eventually selling over ten million copies worldwide; it entered the U.S. charts at number 17 and remained in the Top 200 for almost four years.

Again, Enya was slow to follow up on the success of Shepherd Moons, spending nearly four years working on her fourth album. The record, entitled Memory of Trees, was released in December 1995. Memory of Trees entered the U.S. charts at number nine and sold over two million copies within its first year of release. In 1997 came the release of a greatest-hits collection, Paint the Sky with Stars: The Best of Enya, which featured two new songs. Enya's first album of new material in five years, Day Without Rain, was released in late 2000. In 2002, she contributed material to the first film in Peter Jackson's award-winning Lord of the Rings trilogy, scoring a hit with the single "May It Be." Amarantine, her first full-length recording since Day Without Rain, followed in November 2005. A holiday EP, Christmas Secrets, arrived in 2006, followed by an all new, full-length collection of original seasonal music called And Winter Came in 2008. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & William Ruhlmann, Rovi

However if u dont post this to at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes the worst day of ur life will be tomorrow. When ur done press f6 in the comment section, and your lovers name will come in big letters. This is scary because it actully works
Enya is the essential peace music... I have grown up with it as the way to relax and feel good.
Exile was one of the first songs I heard from Enya. I still get goosebumps.. . .
I'll listen to here when I am working in my office.
She makes me feel like I'm in heaven, when I listen to her music.

Love Enya's singing its So Beautiful
weathering waves fall crashing upon the bay as darken skies promise stormy tides with evening winds echoing a silent goodbye to solice and peaceful rides along African sands watching the sun lay in the oceans spray to give the rising moon a way in the Caribbean to play while seagulls call out warning that rains will come by morning and a new season comes calling breaking away when dawns next rise leaves hearts waiting to see what waters bring in their fading sighs
Guys, Enya is a song?! Nope. Quit saying you love this song on artists
love it
Enya has been in the tub, in my bed and helping me create my art with me since I was 15. I love her relaxing and beautiful music..I still listen to her I'm now 28
FPOJ, I wish it was like that for me, :(
I have to say like lots of people have said Enya is the first thing I think of when it comes to Cletic New age. I think I have almost all of her music.
That's cool that it touches everybody's "inner spirit" �� but I like her because she is a perfect sleep aid. When I hear her I'm just like BOOM dead

Enya is mystically enchanting -- a meteoric star… interestingl y , does not consider herself 'New Age', but distinctly ‘Enya’ - as her distinctive, idiosyncrati c genre so exquisitely bespeaks voluminously
������

I forgot we were talking about this email. OK.
I am done now.✔��✴✨✳✔�
More, and more. We have a bit of luck with your pretty music. Here is my family.����� o h !
