“His Spotify numbers – streams of more than 3.5 million of one song alone – are setting some industry tongues wagging.” Irish Times
Dublin newcomer Dermot Kennedy reveals his brand new single All My Friends, the second track to be taken from his EP Doves and Ravens due 14th April. Kennedy’s much-anticipated new EP was recorded in between London and Toronto with Carey Willetts (Kwabs, Leo Stannard), Charlie Hugall (Florence + The Machine, Ed Sheeran, Crystal Fighters) and Koz (Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa).
Dermot Kennedy hails from Dublin, Ireland, where he spent much of his early musical life cutting his teeth on the city’s incredibly competitive busking circuit. After making a name for himself through his emotive, intimate performances over the years, Dermot self-released three songs in 2016, which have seen him pick up an impressive 25 million streams on Spotify in well under a year- an amazing achievement for a young and unsigned artist. His poetic lyrics and arresting voice hit somewhere between Bon Iver and David Grey, combining contemporary, powerful productions with a cutting and passionate vocal.
