Hello and let me to introduce you to my newest music obsession.
Over the summer, Sweet 98.5 was playing a song called “Young & Free” by Irish singer/songwriter Dermot Kennedy. We were the only station in the country playing that song, which is ridiculous because it’s SO GOOD. Take a listen if you need a refresher:
If you need more of Dermot’s wonderfully gritty voice, you’re in luck. He has a self-titled album that came out this year and is a compilation of his previously released EPs.
Dermot sounds absolutely incredible live, and watching videos of him singing is my new favorite YouTube wormhole. Check out some of my favorite performances and get ready to cry:
