Ruining Everything (2022)
On Ruining Everything Doctor Millar delivers his rootsiest record yet, with contribuitions from such luminaries as Donal Lunny (on Look what she threw away and Unhappy woman), Liam O’Maonlaí (The Hothouse Flowers frontman plays piano on Communion Money and Danny McCoy) and Bill Banjo Whelan. All while still keeping his habitual dry and dark lyrical take on the contemporary life. ‘Hotpress, State Magasine and the RTE Guide’ have all described Doctor Millar as “Irelands best lyricist”. While the Irish Times called him “..an Irish National Treasure”.
C48 was recorded by Sean Millar in Cauldron Studios, Dublin with Joe Chester and Steve Wickham of The Waterboys. C48 was nominated for Irish Album of the Year 2013 by RTE and Meteor Awards.
The Bitter Lie (1995)
The Bitter Lie was Doctor Millar’s debut, released on Robert Stephens Treasure Island discs. Now available for the first time on limited edition vinyl with updated artwork and liner notes. Upon release, The Bitter lie was one of the best-reviewed Irish albums of 1995 and nominated for a Hotpress/Heineken best solo artist award. Since then it has become seen as a cult classic with Rising star “for those I love” last year naming it as one of his influences. At the time Sorted magazine described it as a grower, and 27 years on songs such as “Alcohol Problem”, “You’re not Paranoid”, and “happy can be” have lost none of their raw power. Songwriting which has gained Doctor Millar accolades such as “Irelands Best Songwriter” Hotpress, and “The poet laureate of Dublin’s dark side” The Irish Times.
The Bitter Lie is Doctor Millar’s only album to be released on vinyl.
