John Hynes – From The First

Irish singer-songwriter John Hynes, hailed for his soulful melodies and poignant lyricism, is set to release his latest single, “From The First,” on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2024.

Following the tremendous success of his first two singles, “Caroline, I’m Yours” and “I’m Gonna Try,” both soaring to No.1 on the RTE Radio 1 airplay chart, John Hynes continues to captivate audiences with his distinct sound, reminiscent of baroque pop and tender folk rock.

With a lyrical finesse that paints a vivid picture of love and life’s intricacies, Hynes has been compared to iconic musicians such as Roy Orbison and Glen Campbell.

His songs serve as a narrative for hopeless romantics and explorers of the nuances that exist in love and life, where joy and sorrow coexist seamlessly.

“From The First” delves into themes of parenting and modern manhood, offering a timeless pop experience that is both heartfelt and relatable. Produced by Gavin Glass (known for his work with David Keenan and Lisa Hannigan) and featuring string arrangements by Cormac Curran (collaborator with Hozier and Villagers), the single is a glimpse into Hynes’ forthcoming debut album ‘A Man In Love’, slated for release on February 19, 2024.
