Ciaran is a multi instrumentalist, songwriter and music producer with a passion for creativity. He has been immersed in music all his life and has plenty of experience of being in and around the music industry for a number of years. After years touring with his band Ciaran came up with the idea of The Band Hub and decided to devote 100% of his time to making the idea a reality. “For me The Band Hub represents something much bigger than a music facility, its a Hub of creativity, a community for musicians. If this kind of facility was around when I was a teenager I would be spending all of my time at it with all of my friends. Theres nothing you can’t do at it, you can literally learn your instrument , write songs with your band and record those songs in the same place alongside other artists and bands. Its like a playground for aspiring artists and musicians!”.

Having moved from Birmingham/ London and then to Dublin, I wanted to return home to put what I have learned/experienced back into the community. Teaching and giving people affordable studio sessions so they had a recording they can take home and show their parents, which is something I never had as it was so expensive”.
