New Album by Liv Monaghan

<h2><strong>Under a Bruised Parisian Sky</strong></h2> <p><strong>There are song catchers</strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/536832/20180324-1534878872.JPG" width="100%" /></p> <p>This is my first full length album, after my first original EP,&nbsp;<em><a href="https://www.jazzireland.ie/jazz-shop/irish-jazz-albums/beauty-in-the-park.html" target="_blank">Beauty in the Park</a>.</em>&nbsp;</p> <p>There are eight songs on the&nbsp;album, which were whittled down from many more to fit into just one&nbsp;full day of&nbsp;recording at Aeronef studios in Paris.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/536350/20180322-1534605308.JPG" width="100%" /></p> <p>I started writing this collection immediately after&nbsp;<a href="https://www.jazzireland.ie/jazz-shop/irish-jazz-albums/beauty-in-the-park.html" target="_blank"><em>Beauty in the Park</em></a> with&nbsp;<a href="https://livmonaghan.bandcamp.com/track/dead-ladys-cigarettes" target="_blank"><em>Dead Lady&#39;s Cigarettes</em></a> coming&nbsp;into fruition&nbsp;before its release. While&nbsp;<em>Passion Fruit Moons&nbsp;</em>was written and finalised about four weeks before we went&nbsp;into the studio this summer.&nbsp;</p> <p>I began&nbsp;playing music at the age of 5,&nbsp;but I only started working professionally when&nbsp;I moved to Paris.&nbsp;For a little more info on that, I invite you to check out this documentary piece made&nbsp;of me and my life in Paris by&nbsp;an&nbsp;Irish documentary series that explored the Irish abroad.</p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2Fus-s7gxFwFw%3Fstart%3D3%26feature%3Doembed%26start%3D3&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dus-s7gxFwFw&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2Fus-s7gxFwFw%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>My first original collection on&nbsp;<em>Beauty in the Park&nbsp;</em>included the songs&nbsp;<em>​Ocean Blues</em> and <em>Horses </em>and&nbsp;tended more towards an&nbsp;experimental sound without the support of a harmonic instrument.</p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2F--CCP1PhamQ%3Ffeature%3Doembed&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D--CCP1PhamQ&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2F--CCP1PhamQ%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="500"></iframe></div> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FECG9x3V315c%3Ffeature%3Doembed&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DECG9x3V315c&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FECG9x3V315c%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="500"></iframe></div> <hr /> <p>This album is&nbsp;a more&nbsp;reflective, personal selection of songs, each one inspired by an&nbsp;event, a place or the memory of&nbsp;a person and sometimes a&nbsp;combination of all three&nbsp;in a collage creation of sorts.&nbsp;In this album, I source some vintage joy in the sound, it is a gentle re-telling of tales and&nbsp;it&nbsp;exposes&nbsp;what I most enjoy surrounding myself with musically.&nbsp;I am inspired by Joni Mitchell, Marc Ribot, Alice Coltrane, John Coltrane,&nbsp;Jeff Buckley, Nina Simone,&nbsp;Claude Debussy, Duke Ellington&nbsp;and all the musical performances from <em>The Muppet Show</em>.&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/536396/20273613_10154513963911568_198250065_o-1534686991.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>My music pulls threads from Jazz, Soul, Rock,&nbsp;and Romanticism to create an alternative, sometimes experimental, often poetic sound.&nbsp;</p> <p>I am a lover of the left-behind, of old things,&nbsp;of letter-notes and half-light ghosts which get stitched, strung or typed back up together to make something new.</p> <hr /> <p>The eight songs are as follows;</p> <p><strong>Slow Exhale</strong></p> <p><strong>Aran Jumper</strong></p> <p><strong>Feathers</strong></p> <p><strong>Broken Hotel Room</strong></p> <p><strong>Touching Infinity</strong></p> <p><strong>Dead Lady&#39;s Cigarettes</strong></p> <p><strong>Passion Fruit Moons</strong></p> <p><strong>Endless Augusts</strong></p> <hr /> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/536323/fullsizeoutput_14-1534597876.jpeg" width="100%" /></p> <h2><strong>The Musicians</strong></h2> <p>The album features some of the finest, most delicate and thoughtful playing from three talented and generous&nbsp;Paris based Jazz Musicians.&nbsp;</p> <p>Long time collaborator&nbsp;<strong>Sava Medan</strong> is the bass player on this project and also the score arranger.
