One of fifteen children, Kieran Goss was born and raised in County Down, Northern Ireland. He was just nine years old when he got his first guitar. Growing up in a big family with diverse musical tastes meant that early on he was hearing his brothers' Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson records, his mother's Frank Sinatra records and his sisters' records featuring The Rolling Stones. These varied influences fermented into some brew that gives Kieran Goss his own unique sound.
Kieran supported himself while a law student in Belfast by playing club gigs and the University Students' Union, earning himself support slots for Elvis Costello, Christy Moore and Joe Jackson along the way. After qualifying as a lawyer in the mid-eighties, Kieran left home for France and Germany in order to avoid being drafted into the legal profession! He came back home to Ireland in 1989 to record his first album, Brand New Star. It contained the songs Brand New Star and Just Around The Corner, which came to the attention of Mary Black as she was preparing the album Babes In The Wood. She recorded both songs. ...show less
