Dermot Kennedy

With new album, Sonder, Dermot Kennedy admits he’s never related to a word more. Sonder, “the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own,” encapsulates universal themes of love, loss & hope, with the platinum-selling artist evolving into an even more expressive and powerful storyteller

From busking in the streets to selling out stadiums around the world, his golden vocals and piercing lyrical content at the center of his success, it’s clear authenticity oozes out of him, and his wide range of influences (from singer-songwriters to hip-hop) gives him a unique, raw, genuine sound

Three years working on Sonder, simultaneously enjoying the success of his debut album Without Fear (1.5M+ copies worldwide), established him as a platinum-selling artist in over 12 countries (in the UK: Giants, Outnumbered, Power Over Me, Paradise with Meduza & Power with Kevin Gates; Paradise turned gold in the US also). Without Fear is Ireland’s best-selling debut album of this millennium; an epic stat on Dermot’s resume, whilst he also amassed circa 4 billion streams cross-platform & competed for international male solo artist at the BRITS

The impact that songs like Outnumbered, Power Over Me, Giants & Better Days have had on listeners is staggering. His lyrics’ positivity, ambition, & connection with fans showcases the true power of music, made even deeper because he’s an open book about his struggles, helping others feel seen & find their own voices
