David Keenan
David Keenan is an Irish songwriter, a young Artist who uses his lyrics to paint pictures with words on canvases of silence, curating a body of work which is steeped in the poetic tradition of old but delivered in such a way that is entirely his own.

Creating an inner world through narrative songwriting while leaving the door slightly ajar for us to enter and act out scenes. His live shows have been described as visceral, spiritual and communal events where Keenan moves between a one man and his guitar monologue to fronting a band whose sound only acts as a carrier for the songs further solidifying their intent. Advocating expression through all forms, dressed in the clothes of an out of work revolutionary his debut album is to be let loosed in 2018.

Not just another young lad with an acoustic guitar, Keenan is the sound of Tim Buckley and Brendan Behan arguing over a few jars, while Kavanagh deals Dylan a suspicious hand of cards, and Anthony Cronin and Jack Kerouac furiously try to scribble it all down.

Area Man
Area Man (singer-songwriter Stephen Bak's pseudonymous self) is a project with roots in American folk music that are snarled happily betwixt Alternative and Indie-Rock elements. His debut album, The Birds, navigates themes of loss and rebirth — of youthful folly and the redemptive healing powers of friendship and new beginnings, all coated in gilded American dust and dreamery. His live persona swells with a passionate and frenetic energy that is punctuated by thoughtful lyrical solemnity. He counts Neil Young and Neutral Milk Hotel as two of his favorite sonic influences. The Area Man has performed to audiences large and small across New England and the Tri-State Area.

The Birds is now available for download and streaming on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora and all other major streaming services.
