Greg Clifford’s eagerly awaited 10-track album Lines of Desire will be officially released Monday 4th April. The LP is accompanied by a book and a making of the album documentary.
According to the Dublin creative, who scored two iTunes’ Number 1’s in 2021, ‘the Lines of Desire concept represents individuality, responding to impulse and being unapologetically oneself. The entire project is a synthesis of all the people and elements that have inspired me throughout my life; each moment shapes the person therefore shaping the artist’. Greg Clifford’s accompanying book is a self-examination and analysis of the songs in which he provides an insight into the sources of inspiration, the concepts and philosophies, studio anecdotes and music theory. ‘Writing the book kept me sane during lockdown and helped me reaffirm my beliefs and connect with the songs on a deeper level’.
The 40-minute ‘fly-on-the-wall’ documentary, filmed by Greg’s father Dave (Vox Magazine editor 1980-83), not only showcases the songster recording and developing his songs, but also working alongside Ian Flynn (Werkhouse Productions) as a producer and musical director. Greg Clifford will premiere the documentary in The Wild Duck (Temple Bar, Dublin) Thursday 7th April followed by a live intimate performance. The 10-track album will be available to download and purchase via the musician’s Bandcamp page.
