Cian Godfrey started Somebody’s Child in late-2018 as a means of exploring his voice as a songwriter, inhabiting and exploring a variety of musical styles and sounds. This creative interest can be traced back to when he first sat at a piano in the family apartment in Paris, aged five.
A groundbreaking voice in the Dublin music scene, Somebody's Child has fast become one of the hottest prospects in Ireland having accumulated millions of streams and significant support from Spotify (including, most recently, the addition to the holy grail of indie playlists - ‘The Best Of The Indie List 2020’), as well as BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders ‘Next Wave’ artist), Radio X, Amazing Radio (A-list) and Ireland’s biggest radio station - RTÉ Radio 1.
2021 has seen Somebody’s Child music videos premiered in DORK and DIY, significant backing in Ireland from the likes of Hot Press, with further support from When The Horn Blows (Ones To Watch 2021, Inspired feature) and Clash.
Following support slots with Primal Scream and Kaiser Chiefs, festival appearances at Electric Picnic and Reading & Leeds and even a television performance on Ireland’s Late Late Show playing to over 1/2 a million people, the Dublin five-piece have announced a debut UK & Ireland headline tour, showing their ever-growing ambitions as one of Ireland’s hottest live acts. Their sophomore EP 'Hope, Amongst Other Things' is out now.
