On the track ‘Outnumbered’, his latest single, Global star on-the-rise Dermot Kennedy said; “Outnumbered is an attempt to comfort anybody who is feeling overwhelmed. A reminder that beauty can be found no matter how dark the night may seem. I hope it can be a source of reassurance to anyone going through hard times. To know that things will get better and that hard times will become a thing of the past.”
The single came in the wake of a career highlight run of sold out shows around the UK and Europe, including a staggering performance at London’s Brixton Academy and four nights at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre. Dermot’s long-awaited debut record ‘Without Fear’, due September 27th, is available to pre-order now and comes ahead of his biggest run of dates yet including London’s Eventim Apollo on December 2nd and finishes with his biggest ever headline show at Dublin’s 3Arena on December 22nd.
Dermot recently appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for his debut US TV performance, quickly followed by an appearance on one of America’s top talk shows The Ellen Show, wowing both crowds with a performance of powerhouse single ‘Power Over Me’. The track has also reached #1 airplay charts in France, Germany and Belgium and reached Double Platinum in Ireland, Platinum in the Netherlands and Switzerland and Gold in Canada.
His global streaming numbers continue to rise (over 600m across all platforms) and with 6m+ monthly listeners on Spotify alone as well as recent praise from the likes of the Evening Standard, British GQ, Complex Magazine and The Independent, all success points to Dermot Kennedy.
