Keywest have released the brand new video for their new single ‘Somebody To Love’, which is out now. The single is the first to be released from their upcoming Marshall Records debut album ‘Ordinary Superhero’.

In a move that will build on their massive success to date, Keywest signed a worldwide recording deal with internationally renowned label Marshall Records in November 2018, showcasing their talents at the BBC Introducing live event in London and performing at the RTE 2FM Xmas Ball at the 3Arena in Dublin. Marshall is more than just an amp manufacturing brand. Marshall is a music brand. Jim Marshall’s passion for music was the driver for all that he achieved. This same motivation is at the heart of Marshall Records. The label supports musicians to create, record, produce and promote their music.

Keywest will release their Marshall Records debut album ‘Ordinary Superhero’ this year and are currently on a nine-country tour across Europe. ‘Ordinary Superhero’ has been mixed and mastered at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London by Paul Pritchard and Christian Wright respectively.


The band’s debut album ‘The Message’ entered the top 20 in Ireland, second album ‘Joyland’ went to Number 1 in Ireland in 2015, and third album ‘True North’ went to Number 3 in Ireland. They had a string of radio hits such as ‘Carousel’, ‘This Is Heartbreak’, ‘This Summer’, ‘Something Beautiful’ and ‘Cold Hands’. The band sold out shows across Ireland, including three Dublin sell out shows at The Olympia Theatre, The Academy and Whelans, all within 10 months. In addition to sold out shows the band have been seen at festivals like British Summer Time, Country 2 Country, and Country Music Week in London and Longitude and Electric Picnic festivals in Ireland.

Keywest are widely known for their explosive live performances. The four-piece Dublin based band comprises of Kav, Glover, Jimi and Harry. The band formed after being introduced during a trip to Los Angeles where they became friends. Starting out in Dublin, the band found the gig scene in Ireland very slow and began busking, taking their sound directly to the people of Ireland. Whilst honing their sound and style the band became famous and well known for busking on Shop Street in Galway and Grafton Street in Dublin.
