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

Echoing the comment below me - I can never find the right words for Enya's work. Beautiful beyond description. I consider her one of the best musical artists of modern times.

I was born to the music of Enya:)
by Howard Shore and performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with Enya.
In November 2009, Enya released the album The Very Best of Enya. None of the songs on this recording are new, but the version of Aníron has alternate lyrics from the one heard in the movie or on any movie score recording.

Aníron is a song in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy soundtrack. It is the theme for Aragorn (known later as Elessar) and Arwen Evenstar. Aníron means I desire in the constructed Elvish language of Sindarin. It is featured as part of the track The Council of Elrond on the soundtrack album The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. This song does not appear in Tolkien's writings; it was composed and sung by Enya, and the lyrics were written by Roma Ryan.<1> The song was conducted
Aniron: Beautiful, beautiful song and music.
Beautiful!
the sounds of Heaven, on earth
threw all the endless seas, threw fair morning breeze, carries threw the unseen, threw the dreams of chants among druids threw their change in season threw winters soulous into summers spring being threw with the ages cue after this years threw and another bares a new.

Is Lisa Garrard the same person as Lisa Kelly???
My daughter has always loved enya. Ever since she was a baby. I really enjoy her music as well. You can't beat enya!
Love each and every song.
Her music reminds me of kindergarten and listening in earnest to the soothing melodies and harmonies of her voice blending together until eventually it lulled me into a deep slumber.
in times of elveish dream and wonders yet unseen magic dances threw the fair and even the faries wimcey glides across mystical flights of immposible belief to music not perceived and druids chant deep while beneath the forest unicorn sleep delving into waters of magical hue the forgotten fowl frolic in cue to pans melodic tune and winds carry threw hollows of every tree to places man has yet to see
Cool station

courage05 yes that's a perfect description!
a time forbidden in a land never remembered this is a sound to which eternal dreams fly in mist of fancy where unicorns ride on winds of ever changing season and mountains peak threw the heavens to whisper at natures secret passion and crystal blue waters castcade in endess pools into the abyss of for ever magic and serenity
