Heaven Cried is a song for those who sway on the balance of life, lost in a never ending search for meaning.

It's a metaphorical idea about a person trying to help those who are having a hard time, feel lost or whose head is not in the right place. It's a caring soul reaching out to someone in need, to someone being held captive by the 'black dog'. The song asks you to slow your thoughts down, remember a time when you felt peaceful and grasp onto it. Peace of mind will happen, there is someone out there who will help, unconditionally. You must not lose hope.

It was Recorded at Hellfire Studios, Dublin, produced by Tony Byrne (Julie Fowlis, Danú) and mastered by Josh Clark of Get Real Audio, UK (Kate Rusby's live and studio engineer). It also features Pat Daly on violin (Ham Sandwich, Fionn Regan), Robbie Walsh on Bodhran (Daoiri Farrell, Elanor Shanley) and both Paddy Kiernan and Niall Hughes of Irish Persian quartet Navá.

Remember when we were young
singing them blue notes in an evening sun
we didn't care where we going
Or where we were coming from

Tonight's a different shade of blue
like all the rest but this one

Kind of scares you
Chain of thoughts roll down your cheek
Where love and life meet

Heaven Cried to slow you down
Heaven Cried to slow you down
Don't cry

Peace of mind was just a lie
You thought had once upon a time
You can search a soul till the end of its life
And never realise

Heaven Cried to slow you down
Heaven Cried to slow you down
Don't cry

Lost in a house of mix-tapes and stacks of old blues and folk records, he sifted through each one, de-composing their lyrics and melodies. What became was a raconteur with a voice bursting from the soul. Hubert's songs feature lost loves, inner demons, compulsive liars & day dreamers. ... more
