22-year old UK singer-songwriter Declan J Donovan’s releases latest song “Vienna.” “Vienna,” recorded with George Ezra producer Cam Blackwood, captures Donovan’s storytelling knack. He weaves tales about his friends and family into his songs and loves finding magic in the mundanity of everyday life.
The first track Declan ever wrote, “Fallen So Young,” written especially for his brother’s wedding, was a huge success when he uploaded it to Soundcloud, getting a million plays within six months. In the wake of that triumph, he self-funded three tours around the UK and Europe, eventually landing a record deal at Epic Records in Germany, where major labels caught word of this unsigned troubadour from England playing to sold-out crowds who knew the words to every song. He was one of the only unsigned acts to play last year’s BBC Music’s Biggest Weekend, appearing alongside Taylor Swift, Florence + The Machine, Sam Smith and more.
