New Music from Ross Breen

Acclaimed Irish artist, Ross Breen, returns with a soulful new direction on his latest cut, ‘Some Other Time, Maybe’. Written during a period of isolation in the west of Ireland, the track was recorded on a summery day at producer Gavin Glass’ Orphan Studios in Co. Wexford.

Previous singles released include ‘Heather In December’ (Dec 2019), which was supported by RTÉ Radio 1, Radio Nova and RTÉ 2FM, and ‘Idyllic Valley’ (performed on RTÉ1 television’s The Saturday Night Show, top 30 chart placement, no.1 on iTunes Rock Charts).

Ross was awarded the title of Ireland’s Best Unsigned Singer-Songwriter by Newstalk’s The Tom Dunne Show, with his song ‘Monet’ singled out for extensive airplay from over a thousand submissions.

Ross has consistently impressed on the live stage, earning countless invitations as a special guest with Midlake, Bell X1, Sinead O’Connor, Declan O’Rourke, Damien Dempsey and Oscar-winner Glen Hansard while building a following performing with his band at a number of Ireland’s premier festivals, including Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Indiependence, Knockanstockan, Vantastival and Hard Working Class Heroes.

‘Some Other Time, Maybe’ has a dreamy feel, with the band referencing artists like Serge Gainsbourg, Air, Father John Misty, John Grant and Villagers during the recording process. Ostensibly an ode to idealistic love and great music (the lyrics contain deferential nods towards Leonard Cohen, George Jones, Patsy Cline and Bob Dylan), ‘Some Other Time, Maybe’ is left musically and lyrically open-ended, echoing the current social landscape of our times.

Producer Gavin Glass (Paul Brady, Villagers, Lisa Hannigan, Hot Sprockets, The Minutes) adds: “I’ve been a huge fan of Ross for a long time and I’ve wanted to work with him in the studio for ages. On ‘Some Other Time, Maybe’, I tried to create an environment around the song that would allow the lyric and vocal to just float. I think he and the band really knocked it out of the park on this performance. It’s a Ross Breen people haven’t heard before. Really proud to be involved with this one.”

Ross is excited about fans hearing his new sound, evident on ‘Some Other Time, Maybe’: “The song and the studio recording came together very easily. The musicians were all relaxed on the day, playing naturally and without inhibition. When the mood is right, the session becomes a real joy and it meant we could achieve the tone we set out for, ending up with something very evocative and atmospheric. I’m really proud of this one and looking forward to seeing how people react to it now.“
