DUBLIN-BASED GUITAR HERO FINDS HIS VOICE
They say that a change is as good as a rest and many musicians know this old proverb to be true. Cian Nugent is certainly one of them.
His third album Night Fiction marks a notable departure – it’s the first LP where he assumes the role of singer as well as virtuoso guitar-slinger.
Preferring to let his vocals tell the stories instead of the six-string, Nugent’s transition from instrumental compositions to more traditional, soul and blues-informed numbers is remarkably smooth. Indeed, one wonders why he is only now finding his singing voice.
