Keith Harkin
Keith Harkin
Keith Harkin is an Irish singer songwriter and guitar playing minstrel who has been singing his way into the hearts of music lovers since the wee age of four. HIs musical talents have brought him across the world from the UK to Canada to Australia to America and back, over and over again in his past eight years touring.

During his time touring the States, he gained recognition from Grammy Award-winning Producer, David Foster, who then went on to sign Keith as one of his first artists to Verve Records. Keith released his first solo debut album with Foster and Verve Records, where they watched it soar to the number 1 spot on the Billboard charts.

Over the last two years since his first release, Keith has been writing all of his own material for his highly anticipated, second album set to be release mid 2015. This album is funded by Keith alone and takes a different, deeper more personal direction into Keith's musical styling.

Liam Gerard
Liam Gerard is a Minneapolis-based singer, songwriter, recording artist and performer. With roots in pop music of the 90’s to his adult addiction with Motown and the blues of Ray Charles. The music has been described as pulsing and melodic, with an attention to reflective lyrics based on experience. Tastes of alternative, blues, folk and pop give the music an eclectic feel as it spans multiple genres. Liam Gerard wrote all 11 tracks on his debut album “Belle and Music” and funded the entire project without a record contract over the course of 25 months of work recording it. Each song represents a moment/ event in time captured in the mind of a man utterly impassioned by his muse; a woman he refers to as, Belle.

“Liam Gerard’s new album is a very engaging romp into the world of alt-folk, country, pop, and rock with a blend of influences and genres that incorporate vocals akin to Darius Rucker and David Gray. The album’s strengths include a variety of melodies and rhythms, as well as lyrics that are meaningful and introspective. The weaknesses are basically nonexistent…”
” I am very grateful for the chance to listen to it. It is a very heartfelt, deeply meaningful song. The introduction paints a picture of sadness and brokenness, and the verses write the story. This song would be capable of relating widely to many people, and I am therefore predicting it would be very popular if released into the commercial market. There is absolutely nothing at all negative to say about it; every aspect is perfect. Some may say it is cheesy, but it is of a very deep level of emotion that most songs don’t even break the surface of. It is a very talented song with endless potential. The intro absolutely took my breath away. The sad, solemn music which sulked in the background perfectly contrasted with the loud, angry vocals of a man on the brink of giving up. It was so meaningful and I knew instantly that this song and it’s production had come from the heart. I was impressed that someone could manage to even scratch the surface of what so many people are feeling daily, simply through music.– Ice Skating…”
