Peter Doran is an independent Singer-Songwriter from Mullingar in the Irish Midlands. Peter's musical life started twenty years ago in a roar of electric guitars, distortion pedals and Marshall amps. But his musical direction took an unplanned shift into acoustic-territory after watching people like Damien Rice, Glen Hansard and Emmett Tinley, perform at "The Stables", an intimate music venue just ten minutes walk from Peter's Home. It was a new century and he had a new fascination: the singer and the song.
Currently working with Hallymusic at Arthouse Studios, Ireland, putting the finishing touches to his fifth album. The working title is "Voices". The new album is set for release in 2020 and will feature guest appearances from Haley Heynderickx and Emmett Tinley.
