Conlon is currently writing songs for his fifth studio album.
Ultan Conlon and Gaby Moreno first met at a Milk Carton Kids show. A few weeks later they met again when both were guest artists at the prestigious The Watkins Family Hour show.
A strong friendship was born from those two nights performing. Now, the two have collaborated for Conlon's new single 'The River Flows,' a powerful duet where Conlon’s Celtic-infused folk sensibility merges beautifully with Moreno’s border-crossing, self-described “Spanglish folk soul”.
This re-imagined version of 'The River Flows' was recorded all over the world – in Ireland, London, LA and Nashville. Tim Ross produced and scored the stunning string section, which was recorded in London. Marty Stewart’s bandmate, Chris Scruggs recorded the guitars and pedal steel in Nashville, with Gaby recording her vocals in LA and Ultan recording his in Galway.
