David Keenan is an Irish songwriter, a young Artist who
uses his lyrics to paint pictures with words on canvases
of silence, curating a body of work which is steeped in
the poetic tradition of old but delivered in such a way
that is entirely his own.
Creating an inner world through narrative songwriting
while leaving the door slightly ajar for us to enter
and act out scenes, His live shows have been described
as visceral, spiritual and communal events where Keenan
moves between a one man and his guitar monologue to
fronting a band whose sound only acts as a carrier for
the songs further solidifying their intent. Advocating
expression through all forms, dressed in the clothes
of an out of work revolutionary his debut album is to
be let loose in 2018.
Not just another young lad with an acoustic guitar,
Keenan is the sound of Tim Buckley and Brendan Behan
arguing over a few jars, while Kavanagh deals Dylan
a suspicious hand of cards, and Anthony Cronin and Jack
Kerouac furiously try to scribble it all down.
