Keith Harkin is an Irish Singer / Songwriter who’s been singing and performing since the age of four. His musical talents have brought him across the world from the UK to the United States, Canada, Australia, and literally everywhere between throughout Europe and South America over his past ten years touring.
During his time touring the US, he gained recognition from Grammy Award-winning Producer, David Foster, who went on to sign Keith as one of his first artists to Verve Records. Keith released his first solo album with Foster and Verve, where they watched it soar to a chart-topping position, #1 on the Billboard Music Charts.
Since then, he’s released two more albums, most recently on independently-run Blue Elan Records based in Los Angeles, with his latest album reaching another #1 Billboard position in the World Music Category with his release of Nollaig this past December ’16.
Keith's love for the classics (Don Henley, Glen Campbell, Tom Waits, Neil Young & Van Morrison show — to name a few) are reflected in his collection of folk-infused, acoustic pop sounds. Combined with his honey-thick voice and a full live band, Keith takes you on journey that creeps into his heart strings.
Prior to working on his solo career, Keith gained international recognition as a lead soloist in Celtic Thunder for many years. His role there brought him to write and record a number of his own songs for the show, as well as, perform for a vast audience Worldwide, including President Obama and the first Lady and recording numerous PBS specials.
When Keith isn't touring or recording, you can catch him at the beach surfing or continuing the gypsy travel life from adventure to adventure. But always with a guitar nearby.
