IRISH POWERHOUSE SINGER DERMOT KENNEDY PERFORMS “POWER OVER ME” AND “AN EVENING I WILL NOT FORGET” LIVE AT INDIE88.

One of Dermot Kennedy’s first big breaks in music came after a chance meeting with fellow Irish singer Glen Hansard. Kennedy shared some of his early recordings with Hansard, who in return offered a ten-minute opening spot on his sold-out Christmas show. He made the most of it by performing his song “After Rain,” which would end up being one of his first official singles. “After Rain” would soon earn over 55 million streams on Spotify alone, and in just a few years Kennedy is now garnering over 8-million monthly listeners.

His live performances and debut EP Doves & Ravens, released in 2017, established the Dublin native as a vocal powerhouse and a poignant, honest songwriter. Watch Kennedy perform a stripped-down version of his massive 2018 single “Power Over Me” along with his 2015 acoustic single “An Evening I Will Not Forget.”
