Kieran Mulvihill is a singer/songwriter who blends folk and indie with a poet’s sensibility. Kieran's songs are poetic and observational in nature, with an eye for the cracks in urban life and the melancholy of rural living and leaving. Kieran delivers music in its most unadulterated form with an air of optimism thrown in for good measure. Born and raised in Listowel co Kerry, he is now resides in Dublin.
His live performances aim to captivate his audience through emotive lyrics and storytelling. His vocal approach is often soft with a gentle approach but it also transforms to become more aggressive and passionate with each song.
Kieran supported acts such a Glen Hansard/Damien Dempsey and David Keenan and has been gigging around the Dublin circuit for the past 3 years as a solo artist or with a band.
Kieran released his Debut EP “From the outside looking in” in October 2017 with launch nights in Dublin and Kerry.
His influences include- Mic Christopher, Sun Kil Moon, Nick Drake, John Martyn, Van Morrison, The National, Damien Dempsey, Glen Hansard, The Maryjanes. The writings of John b Keane, Patrick Kavanagh, Jack Kerouac, Michael Harding and Charles Bukowski.
Remy’s music blog- There is so much warmth and the familiarity of an old friend in Mulvihill's first sharing of his music across these five tracks. Kieran Mulvihill is certainly in this cohort based on the songs he has chosen to share through From the Outside Looking In, and I can't get the idea of him in a concert hall with a full string section behind him out of my head, I would be there in a shot.
