McLaughlin is embarking on her first solo project. What began as a cathartic expression and a means of healing following the sudden loss of her husband, turned into an album of rich and authentically raw songs. ‘The Boy Is Gone’ was produced by Martin Stephenson (of the Daintees). McLaughlin and Stephenson collaborated virtually during lock down, passing songs back and forth by satellite creating an album with an ever present search for hope through dark times. McLaughlin is drawn to genres strong in storytelling and the influence of folk, country and the blues is evident in her music and lyrics.
She is accompanied on stage by long timw band mate, Shane McGrath, whose exquisite guitar and mandolin add beautiful depth and movement to the songs.
