Another week has come and gone, and we’re once again looking ahead to a few days doing the things we love, with the ones we love. Some may choose to head out for a night on the town, some may choose to stay in, drink and book in hand, and spend a quiet night at home. For those of you who align with the latter, we have quite the tune for you.
Despite some eye-opening statistics, a lot of you might not be familiar with Aghagallon-based Ciaran Lavery. Little did you know, this uber-talented singer/songwriter has racked up millions of plays on Spotify, and was dubbed as a “Next Hype” by Zane Lowe of BBC Radio one, of course, before he left.
Today, we’re bringing you an intimate look at “Shame,” which showcases Lavery’s heartfelt lyrics and understated guitar work with a lovely section of strings. While the studio recording doesn’t include the strings you’ll see in the video below, it does add an illustrious depth to the already breathtaking track.
Truly singing from the inside out, Lavery’s vocals are sure to hook you in after first listen. If you’re lucky enough to run into this quickly rising musician, make sure to take a moment to tell him what you think. You might just give him a new insight into his own works.
