After a decade of honing his craft and captivating audiences alongside his bandmates, O’Connor found solace and creative liberation in the quietude of Cavan, where he embarked on a deeply introspective journey, crafting his unique sound in the solitude of a spare room. This departure from the collective dynamic of a band allowed O’Connor to embrace the nuances of his daily musings, shaping his songwriting process with unparalleled authenticity and vulnerability.

At the heart of his new music lies ‘Swim To Me’, a poignant continuation of his narrative journey initiated by his previous single ‘Brushing Off The Rust’. The track unfolds a compelling tale of separation amidst the vastness of the sea, echoing themes of loneliness, longing, and resilience in the face of adversity. O’Connor’s evocative lyricism, intertwined with delicate guitar melodies and buoyant cello arrangements, evokes a profound sense of catharsis, culminating in a climactic crescendo that leaves an indelible mark on the listener’s soul.

Recorded at the esteemed Meadow recording studio in Wicklow under the expert guidance of Ken McCabe, ‘Swim To Me’ features a stellar ensemble of musicians, including the masterful drumming of Paul Kenny, the soulful piano and synth compositions of Brian Dillon, the rhythmic bass lines of Ken McCabe himself, and the enchanting cello harmonies of George Shilling.

Dotts O’Connor’s solo venture marks a pivotal moment in his musical evolution, beckoning listeners to embark on an introspective voyage through the depths of emotion and imagination. ‘Swim To Me’ is not merely a song but a profound testament to the transformative power of music to transcend boundaries and unite hearts.
