After a dozen years as a recording artist and five since he became a standalone operator, few would deny him … ‘Permission To Exhale’!

The completion of a first artist album is an epochal moment in every producer’s career, and one that marks the conclusion of a long list of artistic, stylistic and collaborative choices. For Ciaran, that’s meant working alongside a uniquely talented, but also uniquely individual cohort of co-writers. Among them are Hollywood composer Jeff Rona, world renowned motivational speaker Eddie Pinero, estimable singer-songwriters like Lisa Gerrard, Audrey Gallagher, Clara Yates and Hannah Brine, as well as likeminded producers including Roger Shah and Paul Denton. All this has allowed Ciaran to arrive with something that is at once intrinsic, but also box-fresh … ‘Permission To Exhale’.

Pretty much from ‘Permission’s opening minute, McAuley seems intent on breaking the album mould. Backed by stirring strings, motivational speaker Eddie Pinero, talk-walks you through its opening minutes, whilst simultaneously alluding to the journey Ciaran’s been on with the album. Another perhaps less-than-expected contributor is right around the corner too. Having composed music for film & TV shows including Traffic, Chicago Hope and EarthSea, Jeff Rona shares studio space with Ciaran for the string-strung (and nothing less than stunning!) ‘Revelation’. A couple of tracks further in Lisa Gerrard joins the Ciaran/Jeff ensemble. Having previously sung on Hans Zimmer’s Gladiator soundtrack, Lisa brings yet more filmic pedigree and feel to Ciaran’s most recent single, the endlessly mesmerizing ‘On An Ocean.
