As he embarks on his biggest European tour to date, opening for fellow countryman Hozier; David Keenan is thrilled to announce his first European headline tour for spring 2020.
The young Irishman, who counts Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol) and Glen Hansard (The Frames) among his growing legion of followers, has been busy. Putting the finishing touches to his debut album, due for release early in the new year, as well as delighting festival-goers - both at home and in Europe - with his spell-binding storytelling and arresting song-craft.
An absolute obsession with Words and Melody took hold of David at a very early age. Exposed to the writings of Behan, Yeats and Wilde with the soundtrack of Dylan, Buckley and The Dubliners illuminating his formative years. Inspired by the storytelling and character creations of his Grandfather he took the boat over the water and gathered tales and tunes of his own, learning his craft and expressing his love of language. Having been asked to play alongside the likes of Mick Flannery, Hothouse Flowers, Damien Dempsey and Glen Hansard David is fast becoming one of Ireland's most talked about young artists.
