'plz stay, bb' was born out of a period of personal and professional turmoil. the beguiling single “october”, was the song to kick start his new album.“i came out the other side feeling quite raw and a little bit empty,” he says. “i really lost my way.” the title itself, 'plz stay, bb', was a note that ciaran had written to himself, as a message of self care. but ciaran’s fourth is not the maudlin album of a sensitive singer-songwriter. having grown up in aghagallon in northern ireland’s county antrim, ciaran wanted to break free from the preconceptions surrounding irish singer-songwriters. fans of early keaton henson, william fitzsimmons and gregory alan isakov will love this.
