ORIAN Presents ‘Grateful’ An Indie-Pop Gem Co-Written With Craig Walker

Having ended a year-long transitional hiatus from releasing music with the release of ‘Ask You Twice’ in September 2020, alternative Irish songwriter ORIAN follows up with ‘Grateful’, a thoughtful and poignant track about letting those close to you in.

Co-written with Craig Walker (Power of Dreams/Archive), understated harmonics and crisp, pop guitar melodies follow ORIAN’s soulful voice closely, adding an emotional weight to his words. The track was produced by ANDOR, giving it an epic and swelling ambience.

Though penned prior to our current global context, ‘Grateful’s sentiment rings true for ORIAN now more than ever. About learning to lean on those around you when you need it most, his lyrics are reflective, humble, and grounded – an incidentally perfect fit for the times. A stripped-back version of the track was recorded during Lockdown live in Berlin.

‘Grateful’, reflects the vulnerability that I feel, and how important having the right people around you can be at these times. In short, it’s a reminder to be there for one another, and to be grateful for the people we surround ourselves with.” Orian.
