DAVID KEENAN

Hot Press - - Hot For 2018 Irish Acts -

Keenan has been hailed as an artist with a voice that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and takes you by the hand into his world of imag­i­na­tion – and who are we to ar­gue with that? In­spired by es­capism and lyri­cal greats such as Yeats, Ka­vanagh, Dy­lan and Co­hen, the young twenty-some­thing pounded the streets of Liver­pool and Lon­don for ex­pe­ri­ence be­fore tak­ing his notes and em­bry­onic ideas back home. Earn­ing rave reviews for his vis­ceral brand of sto­ry­telling and mag­netic live per­for­mances, af­ter a lis­ten to de­but sin­gle ‘Cob­webs’, it won’t sur­prise you to learn that Keenan counts Hozier and Glen Hansard as fa­mous fans.
