Her albums include Dark Sy Island, (released in 2015), A Day Without Rain (released in 2000), as well as And Winter Came (released in 2008). One of Enya's songs, "Evening Falls" (released as a single in 1988), was even used in the popular film Avatar. If you're a fan of this new age chanteuse, consider adding some of these CDs by similar artists to your collection. Loreena McKennitt - An Ancient Muse Hiroyuki Ito / Getty Images This 2006 album from Loreena McKennitt will delight Enya fans with its lush, ambient sound and impressive vocals and instrumental arrangements. If it's the yuletide, check out "The Holly and the Ivy," which features McKennitt's haunting vocals, invoking a deeply Pagan feel to a song celebrating a Christian holiday. Sissel - My Heart UK Press via Getty Images / Getty Images Sissel made waves (pun intended) when she sang on the soundtrack to the hit film Titanic. The soundtrack had originally been offered to Enya herself, but Irish singer declined, and the Norwegian chanteuse Sissel got the chance instead. Enigma - Voyageur Enigma is more of a musical project than an actual band, as much of the music is actually electronic. Husband and wife Michael and Sandra Cretu head up Enigma, perhaps best known for the song "Return to Innocence," which has appeared on dozens of television and movie soundtracks. Maire Brennan - Whisper to the Wild Water Redferns / Getty Images Enya fans should have no trouble finding common threads between her music and that of Maire Brennan, especially since the two women are sisters. Brennan's music is slightly more traditionally Celtic than Enya's, but fans of one will likely find themselves fans of the other. Lisa Gerrard - The Mirror Pool Elisabetta A. Villa / Getty Images Lisa Gerrard is a world-renowned musician. You may not know her name, but you're likely familiar with her music: She composed and performed the soundtracks for the films Gladiator, Whale Rider, Ali, Man on Fire, and dozens of others. Her voice is remarkable and her compositions are exquisite. Solas - For Love and Laughter If you're inclined toward Enya's more Celtic songs, rather than her new-age melodies, Solas might just be the band that really hooks you. The group is young, hip, urban, and fun, and it exudes an attitude that'll grab you and hook you right from the get-go. Clannad - Rogha: The Best of Clannad Redferns via Getty Images / Getty Images Clannad is a progressive Irish music group, which consists mostly of Enya's real-life family, plus a couple of friends. Enya was actually a part of the band before she embarked on her solo career. Clannad hasn't recorded a new studio album in quite some time, though the group continues to state that it will do so in the near future, it's definitely worth picking up this best-of album. Mairead Nesbitt - Raining Up Walter McBride / Getty Images If you're a fan of Enya, you might like this debut album from Celtic fiddler Mairead Nesbitt. It's a bit traditional, as Nesbitt is first and foremost a traditional Irish fiddler, but the album is very clean and well-produced.
