Darren Kiely

Hailing from a quaint town in Co. Cork, Ireland, Darren Kiely’s folk-infused pop sound originates from his inherited love of traditional Irish music, intertwined with modern influences such as The Lumineers and Noah Kahan.

At just five years old, Darren learned the tin whistle, and at eight years old he picked up the fiddle, eventually teaching himself to play guitar as well.

Darren began singing in 2019, quickly garnering attention for his raw and fervent vocals and emotive delivery. After winning numerous honors at a national level in Irish traditional music, Darren found his way to New York in 2022 to continue developing his own music and sound.

Since then, he has entered Ireland's top 50 viral charts on three separate occasions: with his debut single "How Could You Love Me,” followed by "Ella" and "Time To Leave.”

The singer-songwriter recently added buzzworthy new track “Mom & Dad” to his repertoire, which debuted in the Top 40 on the Irish Singles Chart and also landed him in the Top 5 on the Irish Home Grown chart.

With over 6.5 million total global streams under his belt and recent sold out shows at Rockwood Music Hall and Mercury Lounge in New York and The Basement in Nashville, Darren is set to bring his THE ROAD HOME TOUR to his home country of Ireland in November. With stops in Cork, Dublin, Galway and Limerick, the tour sold out the same day it went on sale.
