Portlaoise man Kean Kavanagh has been crushing it in the Irish music scene and even further afield for the last number of years.
His hard work and talent is paying off, and Kean is likely to feature alongside Kojaque in RTE’s ‘Other Voices’ as the 17th series of the show airs tonight.
Kean is a co-founder of Soft Boy records, as well as being a songwriter and producer. Kean featured on Kojaque’s song ‘Eviction Notice’ and the two performed the song in St James’s Church in Dingle, which is likely be televised on Other Voices.
Kojaque appears on episode four of the programme on Thursday, March 14 alongside Courtney Marie Andrews, Loah, Pow Pig and Jack O’Rourke.
Kean will also be performing at the RTÉ Choice Music awards, joinging the Dublin rapper live on stage. Kojaque’s Deli Daydreams album is nominated for Album of the Year.
The Kean Kavanagh band is supporting Kojaque this Saturday night in a sold out gig in the place to be for any Irish artist, Whelan’s of Dublin.
Not stopping there, the two are also travelling to Austin, Texas in March to perform at the South by Southwest SXSW festival.
The Kean Kavanagh band is also supporting Maverick Sabre in Dublin and Cork in late March.
