Starting his musical journey aged five in Paris, Cian Godfrey (aka Somebody’s Child) took to playing the piano in the family apartment. Upon moving back to Ireland, he gained an interest in songwriting, enabling him to tell his own stories. These narratives often reflect upon difficult mental health experiences, as well as the endearing happenings of a youngster growing up in Dublin.
Three EPs followed in quick succession (‘20-Something’, ‘Hope, Amongst Other Things’ and ‘Staying Sane’) which both consolidated support at home and found new supporters in the UK, namely BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, who interviewed Cian as his ‘Next Wave’ artist on two occasions.
The band’s snappy and energetic live show had already been creating a word-of-mouth buzz by the time of Somebody’s Child’s debut headline tour at the back end of 2021, which culminated in sold out shows in London (Colours), Dublin (Button Factory) and more.
