‘The World Is Wide’ By Peter Doran
We are delighted that today the guys at Folk Radio UK have premiered our official video The World is Wide from Peter Doran’s new album “Outlines”
Peter is a singer song writer based in Ireland and this is his 4th Album. There are some beautiful songs to discover on this new album and it has been a lovely adventure creating this music video with Peter.
He has a magical way with words and his music leaves you feeling warm and contemplative.
”The World Is Wide dreams of adventure but never buys the ticket… beautiful imagery…the chorus opens like a flower does to early morning sun, but these aren’t friendly pop songs. They do, however, suck you in.”
Folk Radio UK’s review of the “Outlines” sums up the feeling of the album and can describe it in a more elegant way then I, you can read the full review here.
More about the making of the video here and I would recommend popping over to Peters site here and signing up to his newsletter.
“Outlines” is released digitally across all platforms on Friday October 24th.
Physical CDs are available from:https://peterdoran.bandcamp.com/album/outlines
Peter Doran – Live at The House
Creating ‘The World is Wide’ Music Video with Peter Doran, from the new album ‘Outlines’
Back in February I went to see the musical poet himself Peter Doran do his thing on stage. It was in a little venue on the Northside of Dublin, Ireland called ‘The House’.
It was a blustery wet evening so I was a little hesitant to head out, but I knew Peter is the type of person who would have gone out in the rain for me; so I literally threw caution to the wind and I jumped on the bus.
Myself and the ‘always kind’ Therese Fallon sat at a little table with one candle in the middle and had a glass of vino as we warmed up in the cosy fairy-light lit room.
The show was as expected; magical. To my surprise Peter was going to try out some of his newest songs. These would soon be recorded and turn in to his latest album ‘Outlines’ that is to be released this week on iTunes (24th of Oct 2014).
I have been a friend and a big fan of Peter since he had us along to document the recording of his last album ‘Overhead the Stars’ in Grouse Lodge Studios. I had not come across his music before then, but was hooked as soon as I heard his songs. Peter’s visual, clever use of words and his beautiful view of the world around him is enthralling.
As I sat in the warm room that night listening to his new songs, he started to play the first few chords of ‘The World is Wide‘ and I am sure I fell into a deep trance.
Peter Doran – Experiencing Fame
Haunting and intriguing, his melody and words tapped into memories that I had almost forgotten, or… were they even mine? I wasn’t sure, but I did know that I felt an enchantment falling over me. I could see the film in my mind. It is so exciting when something tug‘s at your creativity and I spoke with Peter after the set about doing the video for ‘The World is Wide‘ with him.
Little did I know that getting on that bus, on that blustery night would be the start of an 8 month magical music video adventure….
I am looking forward to the release of the music video and getting it to people’s eyes. But most of all I hope it will spread the music and ethos of the lovely Peter Doran. He is one person Ireland should be proud of.
If you are interested in hearing more about the development and making of the music video, I will be posting part two after the video goes public. Stay tuned. 🙂
