Ciara releases pop single ahead of debut album launch

With her debut album launch just around the corner, local chanteuse Ciara Lawless is whetting the appetite for music fans with a fresh single 'No Rain, No Flowers' out this Friday, April 12.

The Celtic songbird from Taughmaconnell is starting spring on a strong note with the latest pop single from her upcoming debut album 'Paint My Soul', set to be released on April 26 next.

'No Rain, No Flowers' was written by LA-based Myah Marie, who has worked with Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Lil Wayne, and Selena Gomez, alongside Irish songwriter Oisin Browne.

Ciara, who is presenter on ROS FM, the community radio in Roscommon town, and works as a part-time florist in the family business in Ballinasloe, described the song from her first album as "a catchy, upbeat, fun pop song about resilience, hope, and growth in the face of adversity.

A new music video for 'No Rain, No Flowers' launches today (Friday) on Ciara's social media channels.

With an album launch to look forward to at the end of this month, she will have a busy few months with upcoming performances at 'The Artist Showcase' in Fibber Magees, Dublin on May 2, and at the Bealtaine Fire Festival at the historic Hill of Uisneach just a few day later, on May 11.

Her music journey began at a young age when she started taking classes in acting and singing in Athlone. She later developed an interest in classical and opera, training at the Academy of Music in Tullamore, where she also competed in national and international competitions.

Ciara, a former student of Our Lady's Bower, Athlone, earned her singing stripes as a funeral singer, something that she is very proud and honoured to do. She later honed her stage presence at a number of local gigs and festivals.

With an album due out at the end of April that is sure to make waves, Ciara Lawless is ready to take centre stage in 2024, solidifying her place as one of Ireland's most promising young musical talents.

Hot Press magazine labelled her last year as a 'promising new artist' in reviews, with her songs described as "melodic pieces of beauty".

The South Roscommon singer also recently featured on the front cover of the popular Rude Health Magazine, distributed in health food shops all over Ireland and in the UK, with a print run of over 52,000.

Ciara has become known for her soulful voice and signature flower head crowns, catching the eyes of festival-goers over the last year.

Ciara’s music, likened to Kate Bush, Tori Amos and Florence Welsh, is available on all streaming platforms, released and distributed by Human Angel Records.
