Irish gem Dermot Kennedy has captured our hearts once again, delivering 20 minutes of live goodness direct from his own piano.
With many self-isolating or in quarantine in the confines of their own homes across the world, Kennedy’s colossal voice is exactly what we need right now.
Check it out below. You’re welcome…
Kennedy, who was due to arrive in Australia this April for his biggest Aus tour to date, is currently at the zenith of a dizzying build that has taken him from busking on the streets of his native Dublin to the precipice of international mega stardom with the release of his debut album Without Fear; a collection of cathartic, immersive songs that capture the essence and power behind Kennedy’s voice and storytelling.
His breakthrough journey was rubber-stamped in early October as the ablum zoomed straight to #1 on the UK Album Chart (knocking off the reissue of a little album called Abbey Road for good measure), making the 27 year old the first Irish solo artist to score a #1 debut in nearly 20 years.
This landmark achievement was accompanied by the rising fortunes of Kennedy’s latest single ‘Outnumbered’, a powerfully propulsive tune that has hit the Top 10 in the UK, Ireland and Belgium. It’s also accompanied by a killer video which is currently heading towards 11 million YouTube views.
Kennedy has become a regular visitor Down Under, hitting both Falls and Splendour in the Grass festivals in recent years and making sure that his growing throng of followers get some regular face time with this heart throb.
Without Fear hit the charts immediately on local release and is causing fans to fall further in love with Dermot Kennedy’s astonishing voice.
Honestly, what a voice!
