Cuchulain Kelly Music
Cuchulain (pronounced “ka-HOO-lin”) is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. The name (yes, his real, legal name, shared with a character in Irish mythology) says as much about him as it does his music: unique, creative, lyrical, and story-driven. Cuchulain’s tongue-in-cheek wit and activist spirit emerge from his carefully crafted lyrics, drawing comparisons to artists like John Prine, Randy Newman, and Johnny Cash. His self-titled debut album, released in 2017, has been most appreciated for its entrancing story-telling and rich and often surprising compositions, with more instruments than you can count, most of them played by Cuchulain himself. Cuchulain is rapidly developing a cross-country following, with experiences living and performing in places as disparate as Washington, DC, and San Francisco, California. His bass-baritone melodies will capture the attention of any listening room and leave them laughing and crying the whole way home.
