Irish singer/songwriter Dermot Kennedy rather quickly has become one of the more buzzed-about new artists in music. Just a couple of years ago he played his first U.S. show at a small club in Brooklyn and this year he's been touring the world, selling out large venues and playing festivals from Glastonbury to Coachella.
Kennedy will be playing dates all over the world through the end of 2019, then get back at it in 2020 with his longest Northern American jaunt yet. The 33-city tour is bringing him to Cincinnati for a headlining show at Taft Theatre on March 14.
Tickets ($27.50-$35) go on sale this Friday, Sept. 27 at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com.
Kennedy was inspired by artists like David Gray, Bon Iver and fellow Irishman Glen Hansard and he's earned comparisons to Ed Sheeran — "but darker, more melancholy," according to GQ. Though he hasn't even released a full-length album yet (outside of a compilation of previously-released tracks), Kennedy has amassed over 600 million streams so far with singles like "Outnumbered" and "Power Over Me." His much-anticipated debut LP, Without Fear, is due Oct. 4 on Interscope Records.
