Eithne Ni Bhraonain had a brief spell with her siblings in Clannad before turning solo in 1980. She hit international fame in 1988 with second album 'Watermark' and, most notably, 'Orinico Flow', which defined the Enya sound that would make her the most successful Irish solo artist ever. The song was No. 1 in the UK for three consecutive weeks and reached 24 in the U.S. Enya, now aged 54, releases her eighth studio album 'Dark Sky Island' on the 20th of this month.
