- Karan Casey & John Doyle - Exiles Return
Casey describes the CD as a way of "pushing back a bit" to shine a bright light on the songs. Simplicity "takes a lot more depth," she says. "You have to be a lot more confident in your playing and singing to take an honest, direct, simple approach. You can't hide anywhere. It's a very exposed album." The spare arrangements on Exile's Return cut right to the heart of the music, and that was the point. "A song is very intimate," says Doyle, "even if it's a very traditional song. Each song has a personal meaning." On this CD, he says, “all the songs have an element of loss and yearning. At the end of the day songs are what carry stories of love, and all human emotions."
