FROM SWEENEYS BAR ON DAME STREEThttp://www.facebook.com/sweeneysbar
Louise Killeen is a singer-songwriter from Shannonbridge, Co Offaly. Having first caught the public's eye with her weekly appearances on RTE's You're a Star in 2005, Louise quickly gained a reputation as a talented songwriter with something different to offer. Out about her sexuality from the start, the song 'Star Struck' captured the hearts of a loyal and admiring public, bringing Louise both national and international success.
Six years later Louise Killeen is back with a brand new album filled with "catchy hooks that get you singing in the shower Simon and Garfunkel style." (GCN) Brilliant Tease is a remarkable body of work that is both musically and contextually interesting. Lyrics such as " Johnny's out of luck, I've started checking out his sister," typify the type of humour Killeen uses to great effect on this album. Having said that Brilliant Tease is evenly balanced with mellower, at times sorrowful tracks such as 'Coalmines' and 'This Love'.
If you're looking for an Irish singer-songwriter that breaks the mould, Louise Killeen is someone you need to listen to. Winner of two national songwriting competitions and with a truly different and authentic voice, Louise Killeen is a genuine recognisable talent. Brilliant Tease is available to buy from her web-site www.louisekilleen.com
or on itunes from March 2011.
