Finding the perfect balance between extremes both thematically and sonically, whether that be lyrical explorations of life and death, love and loss, or the heady juxtaposition of Bon Iver-esque indie arrangements and R&B/hip hop production values that call to mind Drake, up-and-coming Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy and his poetic vision has proved a huge success both in his home territories and stateside. Catch the rising star as he continues to tour into 2020!!
Kennedy has a musical maturity that belies his young years, which not only blossoms in his emotive songwriting, but his spellbinding live performances as well. No stranger to selling out venues from Cologne to Chicago, the performer's powerful, husky vocals command the attention of even the chattiest concertgoers at the back of the room. His charismatic stage presence weaves together hypnotic grooves, wistful melodies and soaring choruses that audiences just can't help but sing along to.
