Here’s the artwork for my next single which comes out on Friday! The song is a reflection on getting the news my friend had passed away and the realisation of how permanent that really is. I wanted to do something different for the artwork and @craicin_design really nailed my vision. On the cover @pdunne21 is sitting at a piano, the place where he could move a room to silence with his incredible playing. There’s a link in my bio to Pre-Save, please considering saving the track and adding it to your playlists before Friday! Thanks 🙏🏻

Ryan O’Shaughnessy at the Eurovision Song Contest
We of course all remember Ryan thanks to his touching performance in Lisbon earlier this year. With a little help from a bench and some amazingly synchronized dancers, he was hoping to spread the message of love and equality with his entry “Together”.
The bookies weren’t too impressed, but he proved them all wrong by qualifying to the final, creating a chain of lights (Anita and Michele should be proud) and giving Ireland their best result in the contest since 2011. For a quick reminder, here’s the performance down below:
