West Cork, County Cork
Fintan McKahey is a young Irish singer- songwriter. His percussive style of guitar resonates with the mystic pulse of West Cork.
Fintan is the son of an Irish drummer (Stump) and British actress. Travels through Thailand, the Masai Mara in Africa and studies with Laika shamans in the Sacred Valley, Peru, have influenced his songs. A multi disciplinary artist, he continues to work as a performer in Ireland, having trained as a classical actor at Kinsale’s amphitheatre.
A year in London furthered his experience of music production, while hip hop and down tempo electronic music permeates his recent work. Fintan launched his debut EP ‘Two Lifetimes Late’ in June followed by a successful Irish summer tour.
There are a number of shows lined up for the coming months but Fintan is mainly working on his new record, sculpting his sound down new avenues with different artists.
Fintan: Genesis of an Artist, a short music documentary by S.H.Bean, premiered at the Dublin International Short Film & Music Festival in October 2018. Cork audiences may enjoy an out of competition screening at the Kino, Cork on 19th October; followed by a preview of new songs from Fintan's 'God Games' EP (due for release early 2019).
