22 year old Jack Keeshan gives listeners a taste of what’s to come. ‘Blue Murder’ is the first track from the Roscrea native’s soon to be released debut long player. Lyrically Keeshan explores the loss of authentic connection that is becoming increasingly evident in our overly digitised world.
Melancholic words are amplified by rumbling drums and mournful guitar that places Jack firmly in the lineage of Eddie Vedder, Mick Flannery and Elliott Smith. Three Artists that have had a profound and audible influence on Keeshan’s songwriting.
Accompanying the track is a music video directed by another rising talent, Director Nathan Campion.
The single, produced by Shayne Thomas Byrne (Sleeping Bears, Maithiún) is available to stream and download from all good digital outlets on September 28th 2018.
The Debut Album ‘Red Stories’ is due out in late 2018 on Carlow based label Ragged Company Recordings.
“For someone so young, Jack Keeshan’s writing prowess is beyond his years. A cacophony of sound coupled with Jack’s hypnotic vocal makes ‘Blue Murder’ a very listenable song”– Roddie Cleere – Irish Music Show KCLR96fm
