Peter Doran launches his fourth album, the self-produced “Outlines”, with a show at Whelan’s (Upstairs) on Friday 7th November. Peter, together with the musicians who played on the album, will perform “Outlines” live from start to finish.

With Special Guest Sive.


Peter Doran is an Irish Singer and Songwriter. His fourth album, the self-produced “Outlines”, is set for release this October. Since the release of his first record “Wood” in 2006, each album has seen an evolution in his sound, his songwriting and his voice. “Outlines” is the songwriter’s most sparse and direct album to date. The album was recorded in a small house in the Irish countryside with a focus on song-craft and performance above all else.

Peter’s combination of vocals and melody create a natural intimacy, one that makes the listener feel as though he is sharing his best kept secrets with them. With a great vocal range, the indie/alternative folk singer brings forth music that is well rounded and raw. His songs travel to unexpected places and draw the listener in, leaving a lasting impression that resonates long after a song has ended.

Peter’s last album “Overhead the stars” was a big record, a band record, a soaring musical statement with every song pushed to its limit. With “Outlines” Peter wanted to bring the songs in another direction, or rather not force them in any direction at all. Instead the songs were given room to breathe and float like “smoke in the air”.

In the last years Peter has toured extensively in Ireland, England, and more recently in Benelux.
