about

Andrew Keoghan's debut album fuses carefully arranged folk, pop and electronic, with songs sometimes delicate and sparse, other times layered and orchestral.

The multi-instrumentalist's debut LP Arctic Tales Divide was released to critical acclaim in his homeland of New Zealand, receiving a nomination for the Taite Prize (inspired by the British Mercury Prize) and named The New Zealand Herald’s Top Local Album of 2011.

His songs reflect a fascination with unexpected encounters and unlikely heroes. There's the tale of evading the advances of an escort near Auckland's K road (Clean Sheets & a Fishbowl aka Gloria), while the Floor's a Canvas concerns the unadulterated joy of dancing at weddings. The album's central theme is escape and a longing for space or complete isolation.

A classically trained singer and arranger, Keoghan worked closely with Lawrence Arabia on the string elements for his new release, The Sparrow (Bella Union) and The Ruby Suns’ forthcoming album Christopher (Sub Pop). In August, Keoghan relocated to New York to produce his sophomore LP.
