DOHENY – Chris Doheny

(Diamond Dog Records)
Ex Geisha front man Chris Doheny presents his self-produced solo album ‘Doheny’. The album features 11 tracks including two previous singles; Gallipoli, which was released for Anzac Day this year, plus a reworking of his successful AFL Footy Show theme, More Than A Game. Opening with a new track, Oz Rock’s Glory Days, which mentions every iconic Australian rock artist you can think of, there’s a distinct Australiana theme to the album. Many of the songs were co-written with friend Ronny Addlem, who came up with some of the concepts and lyrics, while Chris fused it all together musically. The album’s singular title and cover art is a homage to Paul McCartney’s first solo album. Chris has used McCartney’s back cover art as inspiration for his front cover, replicating the photo of Paul in fur-lined coat with a baby tucked snuggly inside it. In this case, it’s Doheny’s youngest daughter. Nice work Chris!
