I love you baby till the parking ticket runs out, sings Ciaran Lavery. Until the lights in the street
are as bright as the stars
The award-winning singer-songwriter from Aghagallon in County Antrim, Ireland may be decorated at home by the Northern Ireland
Music Prize (for his 2016 album Let Bad In) and might have totted up over 80 million streams on Spotify during
his five-year solo career, but its the unrivalled knack he has for a poetic heart-stopping lyric thats set to
earn him wider recognition as a treasured singer-songwriter.
To Chicago is one of the singles from his forthcoming third album Sweet Decay; a collection of strummed
acoustic fragility thats as comforting as it is at times devastating. Beyond the classic melodies, however, its
the storytelling that sets him apart, one that can be as brutal as Angel Olsen and as delicate as Neil Young.
