“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”, Ciaran Lavery returns today with the video for album track, ‘Okkervil River’ and has just announced the Irish leg of his ‘Prince of Norway’ Tour in which we are delighted to be invoved in!
The song which caught the attention of the band it is named after is given a wonderful visual by Daniel Holmes, who compliments Ciaran’s earthy, heartfelt vocals beautifully. A cautionary tale against losing the fiery hope of youth in the complexity of adult life the videos story unfolds much like Laverys songwriting with themes emerging that are evocative and not obvious.
