SXSW 2015 Interview: Hannah McPhillimy of GO WOLF

On the St. Patrick’s Day Tuesday morning of SXSW 2015, editor Mary and I attended the Generator NI-hosted Brunch on a Boat, which featured smaller and more intimate performances from several of the artists featured on Monday night’s Creative Belfast showcase at Latitude 30. The first performer on the Brunch on a Boat bill was Hannah McPhillimy, a solo singer-songwriter who made the trip to Austin as part of indie pop quartet GO WOLF. As I hadn’t realized that she was also a solo artist, I was immediately intrigued, and her lovely singing voice served to pique my interest further during her short opening set.

After the idyllic boat ride down the Colorado River had come to an end, I had a few minutes to stop and chat with McPhillimy outside the Hyatt Regency Austin, where the trip had started and concluded. McPhillimy talked with me about her solo work, including her first EP ‘Seeing Lights’ and her upcoming recording plans, as well as how she came to be part of GO WOLF. My interview with McPhillimy is streaming below, and just under that, you can find a live performance video of her track ‘Homecoming’ from The Little Blue Room Sessions at the end of last year.
