De Ierse singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy haalt inspiratie uit extremen. Dermot vergelijkt hiphop met poëzie vanwege de eerlijkheid van kwalitatieve rappers. Nadat hij Glen Hansard leerde kennen dook hij met hem in de studio. Niet veel later mocht hij met hem op het podium verschijnen om een optreden van tien minuten te maken. Na de single After Rain verschijnt in 2017 de EP Doves & Ravens in 2017 en inmiddels weet hij zijn optredens in Ierland en Engeland uit te verkopen.



Power Over Me is de eerste single van zijn titelloze debuutalbum dat in 2019 verschijnt. Op 22 mei gaf hij een concert in TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht. Outnumbered wordt de opvolger van Power Over Me.


In 2020 werkt hij samen met het Italiaanse Meduza op de track Paradise. Terwijl hij zich aan het voorbereiden is op de release van zijn tweede album, dropt hij eind september 2021 de track Better Days.

Songtekst

Better days are comin'
If no one told you
I hate to hear you cryin'
Over the phone, dear
For seven years runnin'
You've been a soldier

But better days are comin'
Better days are comin' for you
So when the night feels like forever (Mm-hmm)
I'll remember what you said to me

I know you've been hurtin'
Waitin' on a train that just won't come
The rain, it ain't permanent
And soon we'll be dancin' in the sun
We'll be dancin' in the sun

And we'll sing your song together
And we'll sing your song together

We never miss the flowers
Until the sun's down
We never count the hours
Until they're runnin' out
You're on the other side of the storm now
You should be so proud

And better days are comin'
Better days are comin' for you
So when the night feels like forever
I'll remember what you said to me

I know you've been hurtin' (Is our time ever soothing)
Waitin' on a train that just won't come
The rain, it ain't permanent (Is our time ever soothing)
And soon we'll be dancin' in the sun
We'll be dancin' in the sun

And we'll sing your song together
And we'll sing your song together
And we'll sing your song together
And we'll sing your song together

Your story's gonna change
Just wait for better days
You've seen too much of pain
Now you don't even know
That your story's gonna change
Just wait for better days
I promise you
I won't let go

I know you've been hurtin'
Waitin' on a train that just won't come
The rain, it ain't permanent (Is our time ever soothing)
And soon we'll be dancin' in the sun
We'll be dancin' in the sun

And we'll sing your song together
And we'll sing your song together
And we'll sing your song together (Yeah, we'll sing your song)
And we'll sing your song together (Yeah, we'll sing your song together)
