ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Kane's latest solo album, Six Months, No Sun, is a rootsy, semiacoustic mix of fresh ideas that covers a lot of stylistic ground without losing sight of its hillbilly roots.... (I)t's the dark realities of strong songs rooted in depression, suicide, adultery and addiction that separate this disc from the happy-shiny Nashville norm. Somewhere, the ghosts of Roy Acuff and Hank Williams are smiling."--Ed Bumgardner, Winston-Salem Journal

"The spare arrangements, with their deft blend of country, folk and rock, and Kane's typically understated delivery intensify the haunting power of these narratives. Amid all this misery and heartache, the sunny sentiments in Kane's exquisite version of ''What a Wonderful World'' seem downright ironic."--Mark Stryker, Knight Ridder Newspapers

"Steeped in the same timeless dualities as the bluegrass and blues he loves so well, singer-songwriter Kieran Kane alchemizes those roots into a darker and more bittersweet brew. Whether he's lamenting small-town love ("In a Town This Size"), telling tales ("Table Top Dancer") or confronting what's got ahold of him ("Kill the Demon"), the sound is deliciously mournful. "--- Eileen M. Drennen, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Kieran Kane's music is adult in the truest sense of the word. His explorations of mature love, struggles with personal difficulties, and the meaning of life lead directly to his philosophical explorations of faith and life on his more recent releases.

The maturity is not surprising; Kieran's been a successful Top Ten solo artist, a member of the duo The O'Kanes (with Jamie O'Hara), with whom he had six more Top Tens and received rave reviews, and a successful songwriter (he wrote Alan Jackson's huge hit "I'll Go On Loving You"). He left his Atlantic lable in the early 1990s and soon formed Dead Reckoning Records with Harry Stinson, Kevin Welch, Tammy Rogers and Mike Henderson.

He has done several albums with Kevin Welch, Fats Kaplin and Lucas Kane as Kane Welch Kaplin, and did an album with Lucas and David Francey, "Go Jane Go."
