A Film-Maker, A Songwriter and a Grandmother walk into a Room…
Last month I had the pleasure of spending a day with Myles O'Reilly, an Irish Film-Maker whose work I've been a fan of for a long time. I knew that good things would come from the day but the resulting 11 minute film is greater than I could have ever wished for. I am so excited to share this with you:
Meet the Muse:
Things are busy in Doran-Ville at the moment. "Outlines" is finished, artwork, videos and shows are all on the way. But this weekend is a very special one for me on a personal level. My good lady Therese and I will celebrate our 12th anniversary as a couple. This is starting to get serious!Read More
Diving with a clear mind + Album release dates
I was chatting with a friend recently, let's call him Brian - because that's his name - we were listening to my soon-to-be-released album "Outlines".

Video: Live From a Dublin Café
New songs "Things You're Dreaming of", "Always Kind" & "Tug", filmed live in Dublin May 2014.
A few weeks back, I played a show at Bewley's Café Theatre, one of my favourite venues in Dublin. Musicians With Cameras, the good people behind the "Every Little Thing" video, were in the crowd on the night and made this short musical film:
"From the opening swaying notes of ‘The Things You’re Dreaming Of’, Peter Doran’s music seems to fill the venue as the soft ambience of shimmering guitar backing the songwriter’s gently performed vocal. With the camera work cutting from Doran and his band performing to reactions from the captivated crowd, the musician’s clear talents are visually conveyed to great effect." - The last Mixed Tape Blog

I hope these songs bring you some kind of joy. ~PD
