Eddie Keenan is one of the most prolific songwriters of his generation. Melancholia and pop sensibilities wrestle fitfully thoughout his works. Eddie's haunting refrains often strike the listener so compellingly that one is under the impression that this original artist is pulling his material from an extensive and obscure back catalog of half-forgotten songs. Eddie currently plies his talents to the band My Fallen Empire, who are finishing their first album.
Originally From: Tang, Co. Longford
Currently Living in: Athlone
How long playing: maybe 8 years
What Inspired you to write: I write compulsively. Started when I was 16, inspired by the power of music. A friend asked me to play in his band but I couldn't play an instrument, so I joined anyway and learned as I went. I started writing on a guitar that only had two strings, even one sometimes, so my first songs were all written that way.
Other: Currently plays in the band My Fallen Empire who is in the process of recording their first album.
