Northern Irish singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer Ciaran Gribbin has just released an incredibly poignant track, Let’s Change the World. Ciaran is a Grammy-nominated artist with a remarkable musical history.
After studying music he formed the band Leya, which continued for seven years. The band put out one album, titled Watch You Don’t Take Off and toured with bands such as Snow Patrol, Scissor Sisters, Franz Ferdinand and Embrace.
Ciaran also performed backing vocals on Snow Patrol’s album Eyes Open. Since then he has collaborated/co-written with several international artists including Deadmau5 and Paul Oakenfold, with whom he co-wrote Madonna‘s track, Celebration, for which he received a Grammy nomination. Ciaran also toured with many artists including Gotye, Powderfinger, The Script and opened for Sir Paul McCartney at the Hard Rock Calling Festival in Hyde Park, London. Ciaran also wrote and produced soundtrack albums for the films Killing Bono and Heartless.
In November 2011, Ciaran performed his first show with INXS in Peru in front of 7,000 people and two nights later in front of 30,000 people, headlining the Personal Festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Ciaran performed over 50 shows as INXS’ frontman. Two of the songs Ciaran co-wrote with Andrew Farris have been released by INXS: Tiny Summer and We Are United, which was performed in Canberra at the Australia Day celebrations in January 2012 in front of a television audience of one million.
Let’s Change the World is a folk-rock tinged contemporary song that explores themes of unity and hope, with Ciaran’s alluring vocal performance the central focus.
Featuring salient pop hooks and a rousing easy-going ambience Ciaran’s new track is a marvellous musical antidote during these uncertain times. Blending traditional sound textures such as acoustic guitar, brass and vocals with strong melodies, Let’s Change the World stand outs amid the current crop of single releases.
