Keywest Receive IMRO Awards

Ahead of their appearance at the sold out 2FM Xmas Ball in aid of The ISPCC in the 3Arena, IMRO took the opportunity to present Keywest with two IMRO Awards in recognition of their number one albums ‘Joyland’ and ‘True North’.

The IMRO Number 1 Award was introduced to acknowledge IMRO members who reach number 1 in the album charts here in Ireland.

Keywest is a multi-award winning, multi-platinum selling independent artist from the UK and Ireland. They are a 4 piece band that has created an infusion of folk, rock and pop. They began playing on the cold streets across Ireland “busking” initially just to survive and pay the rent. However, from their first performance in this environment it was evident there was something special was happening, the band began pulling crowds and blocking up streets everywhere they played.

They have now sold over 150,000 physical CDs. The band decided to stay independent and set up their own label, rather than going a traditional route due to the success, as they wanted to continue to develop and hone their performance and sound.

From the streets, they have gone on to sell out tours across the UK and Ireland, secure two number one albums in Ireland. The band has now signed with promoters MCD promotions in Ireland and SJM promotions in the UK for their tours. Keywest is now a main stage act at Ireland’s largest music festivals, including Electric Picnic (Ireland largest music festival), Independence, and Longitude. Street shows, venue tours, and festivals tours all under their belt they have played now well in excess of 300+ shows. They have also played arena support slots to the likes of Bastille, Bryan Adams, Kodaline and more.
