‘Just Breathe’ celebrates resilience in a world that can take over
In her first original composition officially released, Siobhán McAleese talks about what inspired her to write ‘Just Breathe’.
“ ‘Just Breathe’ was born out of bog walks and moments to ‘take stock’ ” , says Siobhán McAleese, who releases her first original composition on 30th September 2022 across all major platforms. “My classical routes in piano have really shone through with this composition, and I am very proud of it.”
Siobhán describes ‘Just Breathe’ as a moment in time to allow you to stop in a world that can go a million miles an hour. “ ‘Just Breath’ is a piece that can bring about solstice and calmness when you listen to it. It was born from that place, so the melody just took on its own life the moment I sat at my Kawai ivory keys. It was a pleasure to write and usually flowed out of me after I had been out for a walk in my local bog!” September 2021 saw Siobhán feature in her first ‘live performance film’ curated and produced by SoFFt Productions where Siobhán performed ‘Just Breathe’. This live performance film celebrates the Autumn Equinox at Loughcrew Cairns and Estate, and features other well known Meath based Artists. Siobhán has produced a music video to accompany this calming piano melody, celebrating scenes of nature throughout. ‘Just Breathe’ was produced by Martin Quinn at Jam Studios just outside Kells.
