Singer-songwriter, Fiona Kennedy recently released her highly anticipated new album, Find Me on March 15th. Produced by Christian Best, Cormac O’Connor and Declan Sinnott, the album features eleven (11) tracks, each showcasing Kennedy's unique style and musical diversity. The sold-out launch show was held in the iconic Coughlans Live.
"I'm so excited to share this album with the world," says Fiona. "It's been a long journey to get here, and I'm so proud of what we've created. I hope that people can connect with the songs and find comfort and hope in the music, just as I have."
Fiona Kennedy's Find Me is an album that explores the human condition through the lens of love and heartbreak. Each track is a unique expression of Kennedy's artistry, showcasing her ability to craft powerful songs that resonate with audiences. With its heartfelt lyrics, powerful vocals, and memorable melodies, Find Me is an album, we believe, will captivate listeners from start to finish.
We can’t say it much better than Crystal Gayle; “Fiona has such a beautiful voice”.
In its first week of release, Find Me was made Album of the Week on RTE Lyric Fm’s Marty in the Morning show with Marty Whelan. Fiona was also playlisted on Kerry Radio & Shannonside Northern Sound the same week.
With this record Fiona experienced contrasts from the all too familiar lockdowns resulting with the pandemic; the space to create the album in the first instance and the ability to record at her leisure. However, with the album complete, Fiona felt the project stalled in a manner as there were no promotional opportunities to enable planning for a release. None other than airplay possibilities! With this in mind Fiona commenced releasing tracks from the album. One of the most recent and indeed the album’s opening track; All Together Now, featured on RTE Radio 1 Recommends list last summer. All Together Now, sets the tone for the rest of the record. The haunting and acoustic-driven track is autobiographical and personal and follows the life, loves and career of a musical warrior.
“Fiona is an artist with a glorious voice…a mix of Emmylou Harris & Chrissie Hinds” Jack O’Rourke.
Another of the advance singles from the album is the Declan Sinnott produced Where Else Would You Get It; a poignant ballad that brings us back to happy days of Fiona fishing with her dad. The song's melody and Fiona’s emotive vocal performance make this track magical. Through her lyrics, Kennedy captures the special bond between a father and daughter and the precious memories that last a lifetime. Find Me, the title track is now at radio.
Fiona has carved out a long & prestigious musical career, thanks to her dedication & emotive prowess. Among her accolades is becoming the winner of Ireland's first TV talent competition 'Screen Test' in the 1980’s. Since then she's featured prominently both on radio, TV and on stage with many Late Late Show appearances among other shows. She's been nominated for an IRMA Award, had a one hour TV special on RTE, and has supported international artists such as John Martyn, Carole King & Kris Kristofferson.
March 15th, 2023 is another high in her career; Fiona finally released her third album, Find Me.
