Some singers bring it from the heart, some from the gut. When Dermot Kennedy lays into a lyric, his voice unites both regions, and the result is utterly expressive. The Irish singer-songwriter, who learned his craft in the shadow of heroes such as Glen Hansard and David Grey (two other artists who know about wearing their heart on their sleeve) is becoming more and more expert at calibrating drama.
As his 2013 EP ‘Dancing Under Red Skies’ indicated, his songs strive for the epic, and they often attain their goal. 2016’s “”After Rain”” resonated with lots of listeners – check those Spotify numbers – and his inspired production (tempered with hip-hop elements) on the ‘Doves & Ravens’ EP is giving his folk-pop essence a bit more muscle…and earning him lots of new fans as well. Passion is key to the young singer’s approach. You’ll see it immediately in our DSCVR performance of “”Glory.”” Share with anyone who is looking for the real deal.
