Self-taught guitarist and Skibbereen native Colin Deady releases his new single “Chapel Street” today, January 16th. The single comes off his debut album “Out Of The Blue” which was released March 2015 and was also listed for the Choice Music Awards 2015. The track “Chapel Street” sends me back to songs from the 70’s with its blues and soul influence. Colin has said that as a songwriter he uses his own life experiences as inspiration and you can hear it in the descriptive lyrics of “Chapel Street”. Here Deady recalls a street from his past that holds significance to him thus creating a snapshot of a memory for us. The piano accompaniment judiciously is reminiscent of those soulful songs from the 70s/80s era (and the period I imagine Deady to be writing about) and is beautifully arranged. I’m looking forward to hearing more from this talented musician and songwriter.
