The current run of the Hot Press Y&E Series comes to what promises to be a powerful conclusion tonight, with a live performance by the brilliant, rising LA-based Irish star Cian Ducrot, from Passage West, in Co. Cork.
Tonight marks the final show in the current edition of the Y&E Series – and we're thrilled to be bringing you a performance from special guest Cian Ducrot, going live on the Hot Press Instagram at 7pm tonight...
The Cork producer and singer-songwriter has exploded onto the music scene (and TikTok, where he has built a following of over 800,000) in the past few years with a string of heart-wrenching singles and catchy pop ballads. With the release of his debut EP Make Believe in December 2021, a first UK headline show and more than 35 million streams globally, it was a truly remarkable 12 monthys for the rising Irish artist – and things are only getting bigger.
As the excitement continues to build around Cian’s upcoming projects, he has been spending time recently writing for other artists, including American Idol contestant Lauren Spencer-Smith’s next single ‘Flowers’. Cian will be performing at Barn On The Farm and Forbidden Fruit festivals over the summer. His latest single, stripped back love song ‘All For You’, is out now via Polydor UK. The haunting track, with heartfelt lyrics, explores themes of love, lust and heartbreak.
Since the current edition of the Y&E Series kicked off in March, we've presented artists from across the country – inviting them to take over the Hot Press Instagram each night, and play a live show. In the past few weeks, the likes of Negro Impacto, Abby Butler, Kynsy, Ellen Arthur Blyth, Xona, Slaney, Alex Tierney, KhakiKid and more have appeared on the current Y&E Series.
The performances from the current edition are available for your bingeing pleasure on our IGTV – all of which underline both the quality of the current scene in Ireland, and how our musicians have managed to thrive creatively over what have been two extremely difficult years.
Tune in to the Hot Press Y&E Series tonight at 7pm on our official Instagram channel!
