Ciaran Lavery Live at Flowerfield
Prince of Norway Tour
"It's the sound of a songwriter who's very in touch with his own ability and comfortable in his own skin" - Zane Low
"Lavery's songwriting is nothing short of remarkable" - Hot Press
"Strong, crafted, hugely engaging songwriting" - Irish Times
"One To Watch" - Independent
Having wowed the likes of Q, Clash Magazine, The Independent and KCRW with his recently revealed album 'Let Bad In", and hot off a debut tour of US & Canda and a return to Europe, Ciaran Lavery pays a visit to the north coast with a new album, a new video for album track 'Okkervil River' and the just announced the Irish leg of his much lauded 'Prince of Norway' Tour in which we are delighted to be involved!
He may wield an acoustic guitar and write achingly beautiful universal truths, but Ciaran Lavery doesn’t conform to the sensitive singer-songwriter archetype. The County Antrim native’s second album, Let Bad In, blends Americana and hip-hop influences in a grainy voice with a deep soul impulse over processed beats and sumptuous strings.
Let Bad In is essentially an album based on the naivety of childhood & the loss of that innocence with age. In 2014, Lavery’s Kosher EP and Not Nearly Dark album went global, with the tracks, Shame and Left For America leading the charge racking up more than 30 million listens on the Spotify streaming service and inspiring a raft of renditions from other countries.
The release of Sea Legs, a mini-album on which Lavery collaborated with electronica artist Ryan Vail, won them a nomination for best album at the Northern Irish Music Prize. And then, later in the year, he won the Big Break, a search for the brightest of Ireland’s bright young things hosted by Hot Press magazine.
It’s all about momentum. And there is a real sense that this time belongs to Lavery, that his star will continue to soar in the ascendant just as the instinctive approach to his craft nudges him in other directions.
