Conleth Kane’s new debut album rockets to top ten in charts

NI’s Conleth Kane’s new debut album has rocketed into the top ten of the iTunes Singer Songwriter chart.

Conleth, from Lurgan, released his EP ‘Liberty’ last week and already it is at Number 7 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter chart.

The multi-talented singer also directed a newly-released video of his chart-topping song Proud.

And he has announced he is performing his first live gig since Lockdown, supporting Belfast singer songwriter Brian Kennedy next month.

Conleth also made his directing debut as he was in the Director’s Seat for the video shoot, some of which was filmed before Lockdown in London.

The Lurgan man has been at home recently to promote his album.

He was keen to release the video in 2020 to mark the same year that equal marriage became legal in Northern Ireland.

He revealed that it has been a hectic schedule but he had a lovely time with his mum and dad.

He is looking forward to returning for the gig with Brian Kennedy in September.

Conleth said: “It’s been a while since I’ve been onstage. Seven months exactly. I’m very excited to be getting out to promote my record.

“The Younique Festival of Love has chosen GLOW (Giving Life Opportunities to Women) as their nominated charity.

“I will be supporting Brian Kennedy on Friday 25 September at The Stormont Hotel, Belfast at Saturday 26 September at The Slieve Donard Hotel in Newcastle
