Enya - Celtic Singing Taurus

Enya was born as Eithne Ní Bhraonáin on May 17, 1961, in County Donegal, Ireland. She was the middle of nine children, all known for their musical talents.

Enya was a member of the family Celtic group Clannad for many years before striking out on her own. She did soundtracks for many films, and her work for the BBC was so well received that they turned it into a self-titled album. She not only sings but also plays many instruments.

It was her second album, Watermark, which brought Enya international success. She went platinum with the album and her #1 hit Orinoco Flow was a huge hit.

Enya went on to work on many movies and CDs, including several songs for the Lord of the Ring series.

Enya's traditional Taurus backing has served her well in her work. Listening to her music, you can hear the deep Celtic roots in her music. The stubborn stick-with-itness has given her the ability to work months and months on intricate layering and complex compositions.

Being born in 1961, Enya is the year of the Ox in Chinese astrology. This also gives her the patience and hard working attributes to dedicate herself to the craft of songwriting.
