New Music from Ciaran Moran “Life Inner City”

July 13, 2022

With just around two months since the release of the first Single from his upcoming EP ‘Dublin Inner City’, rapidly rising artist Ciarán Moran announces the Second Single (Title Track) “Life Inner City” from his Homegrown narrated EP.

Life Inner City is where Moran returns to his “most comfortable” style of writing voicing the lifestyle, accent and pureness of the folk raised in Dublin’s Inner City. A raw insight to Dublin’s North Inner City, with one line ploughing through in the first verse “There would be kids who’d use, another route to school, In case the needles cut their feet” simply showing his authentic, style of songwriting, and ensuring the voices he often describes as “left behind” are still heard whilst he repeats throughout “We Stand & Fall Together” referencing his relationship with the folk of his much loved hometown in the North Inner City.

Explaining the writing process of the second single, He states “This one is for those from the Inner City & those who want to know what Life is like in the inner City of Dublin, In recent months I heard a couple of songs about the flats and the area I’m from etc, and the main thing I noticed was that those tracks were missing the realness, and instead written for commercial purposes in my opinion. Life Inner City, Both the single and overall, Is a real representation of the Inner City, and when I wrote this, I wrote it in a way that you could close your eyes and see a real honest picture of our town, and when you open your eyes, you can see its framed with hope. -Life inner City, Life in our City-”

On a much more frequent basis since the initial single release, and following a recent appearance on one of Ireland’s Largest Podcast’s “Talking Bo**ix Podcast with Go Loud”, followers, DJs and journalists tend to lend comparisons of Moran with some Irish Pioneers including Damien Dempsey & Christy Dignam. Moran responds to the similarities occasionally “It’s always great to be compared to legends like those, but I do feel I’m very different in many ways, but I’ll never complain being compared to some of my biggest influences in the country, If I do half of what any of them have done, Il enjoy a great career!” 

With a rapid jump into 2022, A Massive Response to his First Single from the EP & a Sold Out Headline Show in Dublin’s Famous “Whelan’s”, Moran hints at the overall EP release date for September 2022, accompanied by a “Life Inner City” UK & Irish Tour with Dates booked in London, Belfast, Liverpool, Dublin and more to be announced.

Life Inner City was Recorded in Ireland’s Jealoustown Studios with Multi Talented Irish Musician & Producer Stuart Gray (Christy Dignam, Aslan, Royseven, Gavin James, & Many More) and mastered by Billy Farrell.

Along with the Audio release, Moran has announced his second single will also be accompanied by an Official Music Video starring Irish Actor Adam Murphy for a second time, Directed by Highly regarded Armagh Director & FIlmmaker Patrick Hughes.

The second track from the EP “Life Inner City” will be released on all major streaming platforms on July 15th 2022.
