London based singer-songwriter Niall Keels is fast becoming one of the most talked about songwriters in the UK & Ireland.. His debut single ‘Surrender’ was released at the end of 2016 to a rapturous critical appraisal. The Line of Best Fit described the song as “Pure reflection” and a slew of online support then led to performances on London Live and Sofar Sounds. Spotify then jumped on board, adding the single to their tastemaker ‘Fresh Finds’ playlist and Stress Buster playlist. On top of this, his last release was selected by Tom Robinson for his 6 Music BBC introducing playlist.
Niall now draws his main inspiration from bands like The National and the Augustines to heroes Jonny Cash, Phil Collins and Bruce Springsteen.
Jump back to 2017 and to coincide with sold-out shows at St Pancras Old Church and Camden Assembly (Barfly), Keels closed 2017 by sharing the beautiful track Darkest Nights, which has already clocked up over 100k plays. The new track for 2018 is Cold Winter, an anthem that is sure to capture plenty more attention from industry critics and bloggers. The chorus, is a true testament to the pure song writing ability Keels has available.
