PRESENTED BY TOM MILLETT
Having played in various musical projects from a young age, in early 2004 Ciaran Smith began playing his own 4-track recorded songs live under the name Crayonsmith. Soon after, he asked close friends and local musicians Ronan Jackson and Ruadhan O' Meara to jump on board. With them, they brought bass, synthesizers, samplers, autoharp and live percussion/drums to the mix resulting in a fuller band sound.
For now, Ciaran is writing and demoing new material and playing solo shows with a synth and sampler set up as well as some acoustic shows. He recently played the Hefty Horse solo acoustic night with Goodtime John and Squarehead, opened for Phantogram and Benoit Pioulard in Berlin and supported Messiah J and The Expert in Dublin at the Richter Singles Club. He will play on the upcoming Out On A Limb records Irish tour in February to road test the new songs and will announce more live dates shortly.
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
