Keywest are widely known for their explosive live performances. The four-piece Dublin based band comprises of Kav, Glover, Jimi and Harry. The band formed after being introduced during a trip to Los Angeles where they became friends. Starting out in Dublin, the band found the gig scene in Ireland very slow and began busking, taking their sound directly to the people of Ireland. Whilst honing their sound and style the band became famous and well known for busking on Shop Street in Galway and Grafton Street in Dublin.
The band’s debut album The Message entered the top 20 in Ireland, second album Joyland went to number 1 in Ireland in 2015, and third album True North went to number 3 in Ireland and they had a string of radio hits such as ‘Carousel’, ‘This Is Heartbreak’, ‘This Summer’, ‘Something Beautiful’ and ‘Cold Hands’. The band sold out shows across Ireland, including three Dublin sellouts at The Olympia Theatre, The Academy and Whelans, all within 10 months. In addition to sold-out shows the band have been seen at festivals like British Summer Time, Country 2 Country and Country Music Week in London and Longitude and Electric Picnic festivals in Ireland.
Keywest signed with Marshall Records in November 2018, showed their talents at the BBC Introducing Live event in London and performed at the RTE 2FM Xmas Ball at the 3Arena in Dublin. Keywest will release their Marshall Records debut, Ordinary Superhero in 2019 which has been mixed and mastered at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London by Paul Pritchard and Christian Wright respectively.
