Christian Wethered [pron. Wether-Red] is an Irish based poet and songwriter based in Dublin. His new single ‘Way Back’ is a nostalgic ode to summer love.
It’s his second single from his French-inspired E.P, ‘Mon Petit Jardin’, which was recorded at Asta Kalapa, Wexford, by Darragh Nolan. The Single is set for an Aug 21st digital release.
The E.P, which charts a breakup, was recorded with drummer Dyl Lynch (Little Green Cars /Soda Blonde / Zaska), and pianist/bassist/guitarist Cil Byrne (Basciville). The eerie melodies draw on the likes of Leonard Cohen, as well as Fionn Regan, London Grammar and The XX.
Since his student days, Wethered has collaborated with a number of prestigious Irish acts such as Loah, I Have A Tribe, Little Green Cars, Danny Forde, Trinity Orchestra and Zaska. He’s also in the Discovery Gospel Choir, who play a number of festivals around the country. His debut poetry book, ‘I Don’t Love You’, was shortlisted for the Melita Hume Prize in 2018. He has performed at Electric Picnic three times, and recently played at The Ruby Sessions.
