Listen to a track from the 2FM Rising pick for 2018.

Who is he? Dermot Kennedy has generated a diehard fan following, both through his independently released music, and as a revered live performer. Having amassed over 80 million streams from his songs so far, Dermot has an ear for crafting tracks that are stripped-back yet explosive. 

Where can I see him? He's playing Dublin's Olympia Theatre on February 22nd - the show is sold out.
