Denise Chaila Announces Mixtape ‘Go Bravely’


Limerick rapper and poet – and one of our 10 for ’20 – Denise Chaila has revealed details of a new mixtape.

Set for release on October 2nd, the 11-track Go Bravely was announced this morning. Posting online, Chaila said, “I have been waiting to say this for AGES! It’s my pleasure to finally (finally!!) announce that my mixtape, Go Bravely, will be dropping on October 2nd. A bouquet of songs. Not just one. My WHOLE mixtape. I cannot wait. October 2nd.”

In a press release, she said, “This mixtape is a series of sonic polaroids; a patchwork collection of snapshots and messages that came to me in the midst of overwhelming messiness. These songs are affirmations and declarations from every part of me that refused to lie down and give up when everything in me told me I should.

“‘Go Bravely’ is the purest expression of my faith I’ve ever articulated. It means: Come as you are. One foot in front of the other. Leave nothing of yourself behind. Stop waiting to be ready. Choose yourself. Just start. Go Bravely.”
