A recent finalist at the Hot Press Radio Initiative, Fintan McKahey put on a magnificent performance which ensured his place in the hearts of many. Already named as a Hot for 2021 Artist by national media, the soulful alternative-traditional song-writing seems to be just the ticket people are looking for. A serious headliner on the Cork scene, the rest of the world is waking up to the magic spell waiting for their ears. Recorded and produced at Fintan's Ivy Hill Studios, the artist is showing that he's prepared and ready to take on the scene all by himself.
Soft and delicate guitar strums frame a beautiful edge than leans toward the warmth of a hearth. A harmony rises beneath on wailing fretless or bottleneck guitar and Fintan McKahey begins. His song slowly decorates the composition with heartfelt and deeply poetic lines. An element of the gothic underlays the otherwise melodious and uplifting sound, a sense of appreciation for another causes the strongest to miss them sometimes.
