Darren Kiely hails from the picturesque City in Cork, Ireland. His folk-infused pop sound stems from his inherited love of traditional Irish music, which he mixes with modern influences of The Lumineers or Noah Kahan . Darren learned to play the tin whistle at the age of five, picked up the fiddle at eight and eventually taught himself to play the guitar. Darren began singing in 2019 and quickly gained attention for his raw, fervent vocals and soulful delivery. After winning numerous awards nationally for traditional Irish music, Darren moved to New York in 2022 to further develop his own music and sound. Since then, he has reached the Top 50 in the Irish charts three times: with his debut single "How Could You Love Me", his second single "Ella" and his latest release "Time To Leave". The singer-songwriter has independently reached a total of 3 million global streams and has played sold-out headliningShows shows at Rockwood Music Hall and Mercury Lounge in New York. Darren's next adventure lies in the songwriting capital of Nashville, Tennessee, where he currently resides and is producing new music to be released later this year.
