David Keenan is a twenty-four-year-old Irish songwriter whose words seem to walk a fine line between poetry and prose with a voice that grabs you by the scruff and takes you by the hand into his world of imagination.
Inspired by escapism and lyrical greats such as Yeats, Kavanagh, Dylan and Cohen he embodied the role of a down and outs young apprentice and scoured the streets of Liverpool and London for experience before taking his notes and embryonic ideas back home to dissect.
In Keenan the Irish storytelling tradition is alive and well and his live performances are both spiritual and intense in equal measure.
2017 saw David release his first single Cobwebs through Barrack Street Records with a video directed by Myles O’Reilly.
