Rain // Live shows in September

I am pleased to announce the release of Rain, the third single from my recent CD The Art Of Saving Lives.

On the full album, the tune morphs out of the previous track. To this end, I’ve created a radio edit and I’m glad to send it out into the world as a free download – this can be downloaded from here (WAV) or here (MP3).

There is a video on YouTube it was produced, directed and edited by Elton Mullally.

The track was recorded at various stages of the last nine years by Eoin O’Brien, Anthony Gibney and Michael Manning. It was mixed by Anthony Gibney at Audioland Studios in February 2018.

“The rain it falls on all of us just the same”. This song is an antidote to the blues – an injection of positivity designed to lift you even in hard times.

Produced by Josh Johnston
Engineered by Eoin O’Brien, Michael Manning & Anthony Gibney
Mixed by Anthony Gibney
Mastered by David Montuy

In the video:

Josh Johnston – Piano, Vocal, (also Pipe Organ on the track)
