1When you spend two to three years working on an album that I feel very happy with the end result, there is nothing I would change. Musically, I have achieved what I set out to do.
2I always felt that the music sells by itself. The music has always been the successful aspect on my career, and that means that, to me, I can always still stay very focused on music.
3The fans are very, very loyal. They're always saying, 'When is the next album?' They know when I finish in the studio it's got to be a few years before the next album.
4I do understand that not everyone is going to sit and listen to an Enya album. When someone says it's not their cup of tea, it's not their kind of album, that's fine by me.
5With my music, I can express myself so much. A lot of the fans can sense that I'm relating to them something that's quite personal.
6I could have been more famous if I did all the glitzy things, but celebrity always seemed so unnecessary.
7I told the record company I didn't feel the need to be at red-carpet events. I wanted a career. But I wanted to keep myself intact as a person.
8I know every note in every song, the whole history of it, even parts that were there and are gone.
9The writing of a melody is an emotional moment; success doesn't make it easy.
10It's very easy for me to keep a low profile because the focus I feel is always on the music. Success and fame are two different things. And so I feel the success is always towards the music, which means that I can have a very normal and private lifestyle.
11The minuses of celebrity include having to live with security and the knowledge that you may be stalked.
12The music sold itself before anybody knew who I was.
13Writing music on your own makes you think a lot about your life. Who are you? Would you change anything about yourself? This is where it comes from.
14I don't have pets, I have two guard dogs; and I don't do my own shopping; it's a security thing.
15I enjoyed the two years I was with Clannad. I enjoyed touring. We toured a lot in Europe.
16I didn't expect such a huge reaction, but I knew I was doing something different to everything else that was happening at the time.
17I do a so-called trip into myself: I sit down at the piano and the melody might start to evolve from my playing or then I might start to sing it.
18I don't need a man in my life.
19I tend to listen to the classical composers: Rachmaninov, Satie.
20My first language is Gaelic.
21People tend to think that because I need all this time on my own in the studio, that I need time on my own, period. And that's not really true.
22Over in the UK, the music press can be brutal. They can say wonderful things about you one week, and the next week, you're in the can.
23I use my voice as an instrument.
24I am privileged to do a job I love to do. I would never change any moment from my life.
25I do promotion when it is necessary, but I always want to get back to the music.
26I have had death threats from people with fixations.
27The success of Watermark surprised me. I never thought of music as something commercial; it was something very personal to me.
28It's very homely, this castle. It doesn't have huge ballrooms. I didn't want a cold, cavernous place.
29It's a noisy environment we all live in, whether it's traffic or the workplace, so it's very difficult to think about your life in general. A lot of people are afraid to do that. They like to hide behind their work and not face up to a big problem in their life.
30Wintertime for me is a time when I do a lot of my writing in the studio. It's a time I enjoy. And it's very reflective and a very calming time of the year. Throughout the year I gather a lot of musical inspirations, and this is where I bring them to the studio and see what will evolve musically.
31I find I'm not one of these composers that are, you know, walking along a beach or walking on the mountainside in County Donegal that's, you know, 'Oh, a melody.' It's more a matter of eventually taking that moment with me to the studio, and it begins to evolve.
32I can only be who I am.
33Singing in Gaelic is very, very natural to do. I think lends itself very much so to being sung.
34I'm not one for walking the beaches humming a melody. I love the discipline of sitting in the studio, writing and listening. That is my domain.
35As with anything creative, change is inevitable.
36The spring, summer, is quite a hectic time for people in their lives, but then it comes to autumn, and to winter, and you can't but help think back to the year that was, and then hopefully looking forward to the year that is approaching.
37My core beliefs revolve around the idea that we should live to the best of our abilities-we should live and let live.
38The ocean is a central image. It is the symbolism of a great journey.
39Fame and success are very different things.
40When I was growing up, I'd be in the choir. My mum was the organist in the church, so I'd sing in the church.
41I find that music makes people just sit and listen, firstly. Then, they seem to interpret their own emotions with the music and it makes them ponder their own life a lot. And then they start to question: Am I happy in my work? Am I happy in my relationships? What am I striving for?
42I am not reclusive. I just have a private life.
43The Druids held the trees as very sacred.
44There is no formula to it. Writing every song is a little journey. The first note has to lift you.
45It wasn't so long ago that it was not popular to speak Gaelic in Ireland because the areas that Gaelic is spoken in were much poorer areas.
46I am really a very shy person. If I appear, it is because of the music, not because I want to be seen.
47When making music I sink myself into the process as deeply as I can and forget all of the success.
48The personal appearances and red carpet events are very glitzy, but it's a bit false.
49A lot of people know "Enya" the music, but they don't know what I look like, or what I do. And I think that that's really good... for me, and for the music as well.
1Vocal range changes from mezzo-soprano, to light alto on the song (s), "Pilgrim", "Trains and Winter Rains", "Pax Deorum" and "Long Long Journey".
2Because of the soothing nature of her music, the singer's "Only Time" received extensive airplay in the wake of the 9/11 catastrophe. It was this exposure that firmly introduced Enya to American audiences on a grand scale.
3The late Pope John Paul II was reportedly a big fan of her music. She was even invited to the Vatican to sing for him.
4Neighbor of Alison Doody.
5A sample of her song "Boadicea" was used on the Mario Winans hit 'I Dont Want To Know'. It was also used without permission in the Fugees' song "Ready or Not." The Fugees originally did not credit Enya on their album, did not sue them, but it was later settled and she is now credited.
6She creates her signature sound by layering as many as eighty tracks of her own voice.
7Comes from a region in the West of Ireland where the Gaelic language is still spoken. Although Enya can speak fluent English, her first language is Gaelic.
8Sister of Maire Brennan.
9Her New Age albums have earned her 4 Grammy Awards
10As of summer 2003, has never toured or performed a live concert. Most TV appearances have been accomplished by her either lip-synching to her original recording, or singing along with it. There have been a few exceptions, most notably at the 74th Annual Academy Awards and at least once on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992). According to Enya, tours and live concerts of her music are virtually impossible due to the logistics of trying to replicate her sound on stage.
11Name is a registered trademark.
12Has a minor planet/asteroid named after her.
13As a recording entity, "Enya" is often considered to be three people: Enya herself, producer Nicky Ryan and lyricist Roma Ryan. The trio have worked together since the early 1980s.
14Director James Cameron wanted Enya to compose music for Titanic (1997), but when a deal couldn't be reached, James Horner ended up composing an Enya-influenced score for the film.
15Adopted the spelling "Enya" in order to avoid having to continually explain how to pronounce her true first name, "Eithne."
