Joe Nolan makes a remarkably dynamic return in his forthcoming release, Cry Baby. A truly prolific songwriter, Joe has taken the time needed to assemble eleven songs that make perfect sense together. The album's concept takes you on a trip of melancholic madness. Through darkness and depression, booze filled evenings and fractured relationships, Joe is unabashed in sharing his deepest secrets and honest outlooks. There is a charm in his chaos, a youthful maturity, a broken journey but a hopeful return.
“Cry Baby is the album I’ve always wanted to make, to showcase my true colours. It’s a rock n roll album that swells to a whispering hush. This is a pivotal album for me; my confessional. I am so looking forward to getting back in the ring and on the road. There's excitement in opportunity and a fresh start
