Artists

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.

 


Nathaniel Riley

Nathaniel Riley, a folk singer/songwriter from South Dakota, put in his time working the small family farm and recording melancholic melodies in his basement. Treading with years of grief that constructed a cloud full of songs that Nathaniel lugged to Colorado began the process of his debut full length album, "Bird Songs"

Nathaniel's songscapes lean on your heartstrings, unpacking melodies like a nostalgic lucid dream. Acoustically driven, wistful lyricism and ambient instrumentation provide the bedrock for his contemporary folktales. Compiling miles of desolation, heartache, introspection and memories of the forest and the prairie's whistle that convey him to persist. Empowering his songs their role, to be a beacon on the hill.

The sound and songs arrived abundantly, easily and honestly. Nathaniel began recording his album "Bird Songs," with Aaron Youngberg at Swingfingers Recording Studios in Fort Collins, Colorado in September of 2020.

Darren Garvey came on as a producer for the record, bringing a grass-roots perspective and an experimental, contemporary ear.

"I always loved pushing the boundaries of genres and wanted to create something familiar to myself in a couple different ways. One of which was to bring ambient ethereal sounds to the record that may not be commonly found on records claiming to be primarily folk," says Riley.

"I love the process of recording and the almost immortal aspect it provides," Riley says. "You will forever hear the person's skin on the strings, the breath before they sing. Living proof of somebody being alive, and it remains there, like a little memory box of sound forever. Itself, never changing."
