The muses of La Musa: SOAK

Born Bridie Monds-Watson, SOAK (which is a combination of “soul” and “folk”) is a 23-year-old Northern Irish singer-songwriter from Derry fighting for gay rights — and making really incredible music while doing it. The soulful prodigy released her debut album, Before We Forgot How to Dream, in 2015 at only 19 years old.

Three years after the release of their Choice Music Prize-nominated second album, Grim Town, SOAK is set to make their triumphant return with If I Never Know You Like This Again – out on May 20, via Rough Trade Records.
