I'm really excited about this week's Ruby Tuesday artist Kiernan McMullan. Hong Kong born Kiernan who grew up in Limerick is now making friends all over America plugging the debut album Perfect People Are Boring. In 2007 he released his first official single in Ireland called “Borderline” which went to number 3 on the Irish download charts and earned him spots on major radio stations all over the country as well as supports with the likes of Cathy Davey, The Blizzards, David Geraghty, The Coronas, and Delorentos.
In late 2007 Kiernan stepped into the studio with his band to work on a new full length record. They went to Grouse Lodge Studios which has seen the likes of REM, Muse, Snow Patrol, Bloc Party, and Paolo Nutini, record there. Keirnan's in not a typical singer songwriter. It sounds like Kiernan has been heavily influenced by the likes of Dave Matthews, Ben Harper and John Mayer which produces a John Butler trio sound. Kiernan is one of many irish artists at this year's SXSW in Austin, Texas.
Kiernan’s debut on One Eleven Records is available now on iTunes.

There is nothing better than listening to live music. While I was writing this I listened to the following full solo concert of Keirnan here:
