Kev Olden is an Irish indie musician and songwriter, based in Toronto since 2020. Although strongly influenced by Irish music and culture, Olden has more recently drawn from his new Canadian surroundings, with Americana and indie folk sounds. Using a blend of deeply personal lyrics and thoughtfully built atmospheric soundscapes, his music deals with the boundless emotions surrounding change, love and loss.
Having spent most of his time in Canada in lockdown, Olden's first body of work, released in 2021, was born out of the fears and moments of doubt that came with his move. His three single releases received international radio play, recognition from well-known music blogs, and the recent live video for his single 'Ache' was featured on Mahogany Sessions At Home edition.
