Hailing from the small Irish village of Aghagallon, alt-folk troubadour Ciaran Lavery has channeled the quiet despair of isolation into timeless songs of beauty and heartache. Lavery has the ability to demand an audience effortlessly and truly captivates the spirit through expertly crafted songs and an astonishing voice filled with meaning, passion and heart.
Ciaran has already racked up over 9 MILLION plays on Spotify, this is unprecedented for such a new artist.
You might be asking how can this be, when his other social stats are quite modest? The answer is really quite simple, he has great songs, people have added them to playlists on Spotify which have been listened to and then added to more playlists and so on and so on. Ciaran Lavery found his musical voice through the simplest of means “…listening to old 80s singles on my sister’s record player.” Cutting his young teeth in various (often noisier) incarnations over the last decade – that voice is now as soothing as it is timeless. Ciaran crafts heart-on-sleeve acoustic pop in the vein of ‘29’-era Ryan Adams; full of passion and meaning, “I come from a tiny village; you could literally drive through Aghagallon in thirty seconds, but it’s jam packed full of characters and real, genuine people. It’s the type of place where if you’re being an idiot someone will tell you. That’s just how the environment was. I guess that sort of honesty comes out in my music.”
