Dermot Kennedy – Who, Where & Why

He is from Ireland and his name is Dermot Kennedy. Why he’s suddenly on everybody’s radar is probably because of Kennedy’s impressive utilization of the streaming website Spotify. Without the support of any radio airplay, this Irish man was able to record more than 75 million streams to his song “After Rain”.

Dermot Kennedy started writing songs at the age of 16 and his musical journey began from open mic nights to street busking. According to the rising star, while it was heartbreaking to catch the attention of a passerby on street, it was still better than looking for actual jobs in Dublin. His hard work paid off as eventually during one of his gigs, the Grammy Award winning musician Glen Hansard caught his performance. He gave Kennedy 10 minutes of solo time on his show, urging him to do his own thing in front of a crowd of 1,500. And Dermot Kennedy didn’t disappoint.

Having performed on streets in noisy surroundings, Kennedy was able to challenge himself vocally. So while it unnerved him to stand up on stage in front of a huge crowd, in terms of vocal delivery, he believed he was ready.

Recalling his very early days on the street, Kennedy feels that he was able to develop a thick skin as it was tough to prove himself in front of people. “I’d love to get the statistics on how many people walked passed vs. how many stopped in a day. It’s probably about one percent.”

A Vocal Powerhouse – Equal Parts Grace & Grit

Parents always think the best for their children and Dermot Kennedy’s mother is no exception. Since he was hell bent on pursing music as a career, after his high school graduation, Kennedy didn’t bother applying in colleges. So while he sat and watched Champions League match on television, his mother was pursing CAO (Central Application Office) for him. She did the groundwork but Kennedy still had to show up for entrance exam and audition.

He enrolled in Maynooth’s musical program that was a hardcore classical course. Initially finding it difficult to adjust, eventually Dermot Kennedy found the program to be extremely beneficial as it boasted of high standards of musicianship, commitment and passion to learn.

Besides his mother and Glen Hansard playing a pivotal role in kick-starting his career, Kennedy also credits Spotify for his success. In some of his earlier gigs that only had around 50 people in the audience, there were some who claimed that they bought Dermot Kennedy tickets after listening to his music on the streaming website.

The songs “An Evening I’ll Not Forget” and “After Rain” soared in popularity only after Spotify deemed them potential hits.

Kennedy’s weathered vocals remain the highlight of his growing career. His voice offers an emotional, gripping blend that’s driven by both electronic and organic elements. Through his powerful delivery, Dermot Kennedy is able to conjure vivid imagery and sweep the listeners off their feet.

North American Tour

He started his career with live performances, so it’s only fitting that Dermot Kennedy makes them a regular fixture. Besides opening for other artists, he’s now headlining his own tour that started on July 31 from Indianapolis.

Commenting about his US concerts, Kennedy showed a lot of excitement and stated that it has so far been an emotional experience. Aiming to put up a magnetic event, he’s hoping that fans with Dermot Kennedy tickets loose themselves in his performance and it ends up being a cathartic experience for them.
