For Cian, the pursuit of his musical dreams outweighs any transient fears or insecurities. It’s a form of self-discipline that’s as essential to him as tuning a guitar or writing a lyric, ensuring that emotional barriers never eclipse his long-term goals.

Eagerly anticipating his U.S. tour, Cian is thrilled about spreading his musical wings stateside, again.
