Dermot Kennedy

Music Singer-Songwriter Ireland

Presented by: SZENE HAMBURG

20 million clicks on Spotify, that’s a bang. This is how often users wanted to listen to the song "After Rain" by Dermot Kennedy. No wonder, because the young singer from Dublin has a powerful and dark voice, plus he has something to say.

His first EP is called "Doves & Ravens". According to Kennedy the title expresses the oppositions between good and evil and between light and darkness. Or hope in difficult times, too. Dermot Kennedy belongs to the newcomers, moving within different genres stylistically. "While recording the EP I mostly listened to Bon Iver’s music and Drake’s. Both of them influenced me", he states. Gigging live he was supporting mainly artists that are close to the folk genre, like Glen Hansard or James Vincent McMorrow. But to tie Kennedy forever to folk is wrong. In his song "Glory" for instance the Irishman shows his massive and versatile potential.
