An album for his fans on the third anniversary of his death
New music by the self-taught minimalist and electro acoustic composer, Conor Walsh, will be launched at two events – The Sugar Club in Dublin March 15, and The front; The Gateway Hotel in Swinford on March 16. The Lucid is set to arrive on digital platforms, iTunes, Spotify and on vinyl March 11.
The popular Mayo-born musician performed at festivals including Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Other Voices in Dingle and supported Hozier on his Irish tour in 2013.
The posthumous album which includes its namesake song, 'The Lucid' will be a double-sided vinyl. Side A and Side B contain acoustic melodies on one side and electronic on the other featuring ten tracks in total.
Conor’s sister, Fiona Walsh who helped to bring the project together said: “This album is for his fans and by creating this album with his close friend and mentor - Enda Bates, who was the producer of Conor’s first EP ‘The Front’, and Rob Farhat who previously worked with Conor - we wanted to remind people of all the different aspects of Conor; as a brother, friend, composer, and artist. The subtle approach to this album will leave his fans in awe of his simplistic beauty.”
