About the song:
Falling started off with a basic chord progression, and to be honest, I didn’t think it was going to make the cut till I began to sing the word “falling”. I started to get an emotional connection to it. I wrote the song in early 2020, and at a time when I was trying to process my involvement in the refugee crisis and the terrible treatment of people who have already suffered untold pain and upheaval in their lives. I underestimated the profound effect it had on my life being in that environment. The song is about the healing effect of being in a loving and supportive relationship.
Joby’s latest album I Once Was a Hawk But Now I’m a Dove is out on Dimple Discs label in Ireland, Uk and North America on 6th Oct 2023. It is already getting fantastic reviews:
“He has always been an emotional artist, but this is exceptional work .. with a brooding power that’s akin to Christy Moore and Van Morrison.” (STUART BAILLIE)
