David Keenan

David Keenan is a 23 year old Irish songwriter. An absolute obsession with words and melody took hold of David at a very early age. Exposure to the writings of Behan, Yeats and Wilde with the soundtrack of Dylan, Buckley and The Dubliners illuminated 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. This March, David released his debut single ‘Cobwebs’ under his own label ‘Barrack Street Records’.
