Saoirse (pronounced SEER-sha) is Gaelic for freedom, and notably Irish Freedom.  

Saoirse’s Heart is the title track for the fourth studio recording from NYC Irish-Pop band Celtic Cross released in 2014, making both the Irish Voice and Irish Echo best album of the year lists.  The tracks take a soul-searching look at the subtleties of freedom and the redemption it provides, as they are uniquely interwoven in the Irish-American experiences of immigration, love, and family.   The seven-piece band uses a wide canvas of traditional Irish, alt-country and funk on this fourteen all-original track album.   

Saoirse's Heart is the band's most passionate and innovative songwriting and production yet.   The CD features the already popular Irish Girl, Land's In My Blood, Hold on For the Ride, and the alternative trad rebel rap title track Saoirse's Heart.   Click here to read all about the story of the CD and each of the tracks.   

Listen to all of the tracks on Soundcloud for free.    Download it now on iTunes.    Or check out any of the dates for our shows on the right and hear us play the tracks live.
