Harkin debuts solo album
Verve recording artist Keith Harkin’s self-titled solo debut is set for release on September 18th, 2012.
Anticipation for the album has already driven pre-sale orders to Number 2 on Amazon. Jochem van der Saag— who has worked with such artists as Josh Groban, Michael Bublé and Seal, produced the CD. David Foster, the multi-Grammy® Award-winning producer and recently appointed chairman of Verve Music Group, serves as executive producer.
Harkin is best-known as a principle singer with Irish global powerhouse Celtic Thunder, which Billboard named Top World Music Artist.
“Keith Harkin has a rare combination of talents – he’s a great singer, a unique songwriter and gifted live performer. He defines the very qualities true artists are born with,” Foster said, adding, “We’re proud to have Keith as a key member of the growing Verve family.”
“I love all music, and a lot of my influences are on this record,” says Harkin. “Neil Young, pop, dance, country—I love Glen Campbell. I see it like an old-school Elton John record, where he would play rock next to country next to folk. It’s quite a broad horizon.”
