Break Heaven’s Rules is a heart wrenching but ultimately healing story of love and longing told from the perspective of a mourning husband and his wife who has passed away.
A touching duet and collaboration between celebrated Irish pop writer Melissa Jane Carroll and award winning producer and musician Rohan Healy, owner at Beardfire Studios. A moving ballad for everyone who has ever felt the pain of losing someone and who’s looking to find solace in the shared human experience of loving, losing and healing.
Taking influence from the likes of folk and Americana greats Bob Dylan and Neil Young for the overall sound and production, Break Heaven’s Rules invokes the mournful yet hopefully mood of hot summer sunsets and memories of moments shared. Harking back to the days of iconic duets of Johnny Cash and June Carter, Chris Kristofferson and Dolly Parton, George Jones and Tammy Wynette Break, Heaven’s Rules is a modern take on the classic duet.
Melissa Jane Carroll is a master wordsmith and songstress who’s strength of writing knows no genre or style limitation spanning pop, folk, country and from fierce anthems of empowerment to soft introspective pieces.
