We are thrilled to announce that Keywest will be joining us on Friday the 27th of July.
Keywest is a multi-award winning, multi-platinum selling independent artist from the UK and Ireland. They are a 4-piece band that has created an infusion of folk, rock and pop.
Rather than going a traditional route, Keywest decided to stay independent and set up their own label, allowing themselves the time to develop. The band hit the cold city streets of Dublin, Galway Belfast and Waterford and even as far as the warmer streets of Santa Monica in LA busking, using the street performances to perfect their craft and to refine their sound and song writing. However from their first performance in this environment it was evident there was something special was happening, the band began pulling crowds and blocking up streets everywhere they played. This had not been seen in Ireland since U2 started playing on the streets way back. This gave the band the revenue to begin to expand, generating thousands in revenue from sales every time they did a pop up performance within an hour. They have now sold over 150,000 physical cds With their expansion and growth, the band has now signed with promoters MCD promotions in Ireland and SJM promotions in the UK for their tours.
Best known for their live performances which have all resulted in 5 stars reviews, Keywest have gone from busking on streets to basking in the bright lights of theaters and festival stages across Europe. They have also played arena support slots to the likes of Bastille, Bryan Adams, Kodaline and more. Keywest is now officially Ireland’s biggest independent act Their current album ‘True North’ is the band’s third full length release and is propelling the band to even more mainstream success.
