Singer-songwriter Greg Clifford returns with new single ‘Long Lost Friend’

Dublin musician Greg Clifford is set to get a lot of attention with his excellent new single ‘Long Lost Friend’. 

The melodic lead track off his forthcoming album ‘Lines of Desire’ offers an American soulful sound from the multi-instrumentalist.

According to the man himself, the song is about change and moving forward.

“The song represents sacrifice, defiance and the darkness that suppresses you,” he says.

“Change is always tinged with nostalgia but you must move forward in order to survive.

“It mirrors my journey through life as well as the music industry.”

“I’m incredibly proud of this song and I’m excited for people to hear it.”

His new single, due for release on March 5th, was recorded at Sun Studios here in Dublin.

The song is accompanied by a video filmed by Greg and his filmmaker father Dave which you can view by clicking on the link here.

Greg’s style is an authentic synthesis of Indie-pop rock fused with electronic aspects and ‘classical’ guitar fingerpicking.

In 2017 he released an LP entitled ‘Quodlibet’, as well as playing 17 gigs across Ireland as part of a 3-act showcase called the ‘Back to Basics Tour’.

Since then he has gone on to release his second album 20/20 Vision.

As well as touring throughout Ireland and internationally with his own music, Clifford is also an established arranger, producer and conductor who has worked for various acts including Ireland’s chart-topping artist Hozier.

He has also scored for and performed with the RTE Concert Orchestra in a sold-out National Concert Hall and holds a Masters in contemporary composition.

This year will see the release of his much anticipated third album ‘Lines of Desire’ accompanied by a book and documentary.
