Raised in a musical family, Breagh was surrounded by instruments and musicians as long as she can remember. Her song writing style has been influenced by multiple genres ranging from her parents’ vinyl collection, Joni Mitchell, Diana Krall, Paul McCartney, the local Celtic music scene, and numerous musicians across the east coast of Canada.
Breagh has been described as “a prolific writer and a poised performer. A unique voice, Ani DiFranco-esque, but still with a quality all her own.” -By Norma Jean Macphee in “Whatsgoinon”. Since her performance debut in Grade 12, Breagh has played to packed all-ages shows, bars, festivals, conferences and a showcase at the 2011 East Coast Music Awards on the Discovery Stage. In December Breagh released her debut EP which was featured on CBC’s “Atlantic Airwaves” radio program.
As a Cape Breton singer songwriter, Mackinnon’s age is unrecognizable in her sophisticated lyrics and thoughtful arrangements. Where The Days Went, which Mackinnon co-produced at Lakewind Sound Studios along side sound engineer Mike Shepherd, draws inspiration from her extensive songwriting collaborations, as well as her formal Jazz training.
