Overview

Kieran Goss was born and raised in County Down, Northern Ireland. He was just nine years old when he got his first guitar. Growing up in a big family with diverse musical tastes meant that early on he was hearing the music of Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Frank Sinatra and The Rolling Stones. These varied influences fermented into the brew that gives Kieran his own unique sound. Kieran supported himself while a law student in Belfast by playing club gigs and the University Students Union, earning himself support slots for Elvis Costello, Christy Moore and Joe Jackson along the way. After qualifying as a lawyer in the mid-Eighties, Kieran left home for France and Germany in order to avoid being drafted into the legal profession. He came back home to Ireland in 1989 to record his first album, 'Brand New Star', which came to the attention of Mary Black. She recorded two of his songs for her album 'Babes In The Wood'. In 1994 Kieran followed up 'Brand New Star' with the album 'New Day', which contained his chart-topping version of The Four Tops’ 'Reach Out (I’ll Be There)'. In 1998 he released the album 'Worse Than Pride', which contained the Top 10 single 'Out Of My Head'. It was the second most played song on Irish radio that year. 'Worse Than Pride' achieved double platinum status nine months after it was released. 'Red-Letter Day' followed this in 2000, and contained the classic 'Reasons To Leave'. His sixth studio album, 'Blue Sky Sunrise', was recorded in Tennessee and produced by Rodney Crowell and Peter Coleman. It was released in September 2005, and the first single from it - 'Clear Day' - was an instant hit and was picked up by the Progressive Building Society for use in their television advertising campaign. Kieran left Ireland for Austin, Texas, to record his eighth solo album. 'I’ll Be Seeing You' took shape in the Texan heat during a handful of loose, live sessions with the aid of co-producer and musician Gabe Rhodes.
