Colours On Canvas
Barry Tierney has won multiple awards for his music and his writing, accepting accolades from people like Robin Gibb from the Bee Gees and Sir Bob Geldolf from Live Aid and The Boomtown Rats. Signed to Universal Music Berlin back in 2015, Barry Tierney discovered a direction for himself in the music business for life. Releasing his debut album saw him tour the material around Germany, the UK, Russia, and beyond. Everything went extremely well, until the world went suddenly crazy. Moving back to Ireland, where he felt most at home and surrounded by familiar faces, Tierney went into writing mode. Now with his brand new single, and a backdrop of pure heartland Irish heritage behind it, Barry Tierney is preparing to let the crazy back into his life another time.
Close in vocals and strummed guitar opens as accordion offers a harmonising river of sound beneath. The lyrics move like a storybook, ascending in tone and emphasis as each bar moves through the chapters of feeling. Beautiful melodies ring out over delicate composition as a pipe begins to add yet more dimension to the piece. A folk sensibility poignantly spins a tale of life experience that culminates in a passionate meet of minds like Colours On Canvas.
