Kilkelly is an Irish singer-songwriter based in Berlin. He tours solo and with collaborators from the UK, Canada, Japan, Australia and Germany. The songs are a mangled mix of genres such as blues, folk and spoken word – with a splash of the macabre for good measure.

And it’s out! More than a year of grinding, slugging, pulling hair out and digging deep has paid off. The debut album, The Prick and The Petal, released on all major digital platforms. • Have a listen to the entire album on Bandcamp. And you can purchase the digital version there. • We have 6 songs from the album on major platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. As, well, they’re ever so slightly evil, so we’ve decided not to opt in completely. Streaming doesn’t support artists. If you love music, opt for buying physical copies from the artist via platforms like Bandcamp, or, best thing, directly through the artist’s website. Otherwise, you never know where the cash is going. • Have a beautiful time with friends and family, or someone, anyone you love this Christmas. That’s enough. For this and any time of year. And tunes, food and booze never hurt as side, either. • Thanks to the Prick & the Petal band: Felix Buchner, Stephanie Hannon, David Michalke, David S. Ingleton, Riognach Dunne. • Thanks to Cameron Laing at Famous Gold Watch Records. • And thanks to all the patrons, without who, this album wouldn’t exist! • All the love, and Merry Christmas, Conor • #albumrelease #kilkellymusic #irishmusic #darkfolk #droghedamusic

Famous Gold Watch Records
As of June, 2019, Kilkelly has joined a collective of independent musicians to help found Famous Gold Watch Records, Berlin. Acts such as Rufus Coates and Jess Smith, also part of Berlin’s thriving Dark Folk scene, have joined in an effort to work along side each other, promoting, marketing and collaborating – releasing their works under a new label, and under this new climate of music distribution, together.
In September, 2018, Kilkelly and band entered The Famous Gold Watch Studios in Berlin to make a totally independent, debut album, “The Prick and The Petal”. It will be a completely crowd-sourced project, to ensure the music remains as unspoiled and as close to the artistic vision as possible– free of corporate influence and populous pressures.
