Timeline of Brian Kennedy


In October 2018, he started presenting a weekly programme on radio station Tipp FM.


Kennedy was born and grew up on the Falls Road in Belfast. As a child he suffered from Osgood–Schlatter disease in each leg. He has described in public the violence of The Troubles, during his childhood and teen years. He once described seeing a young man being chased and then shot dead by a soldier a few feet away from him. He also would harmonise with police, ambulance and fire engine sirens. Kennedy revealed in 2016 that he has been battling rectal cancer.


Between 2011 and 12, Kennedy was a coach on the first series of The Voice of Ireland. The series screened on RTÉ during the early months of 2012 and Kennedy mentored the eventual runner-up in the final, Richie Hayes.


On 23 August 2010, Kennedy played a version of ‘Christopher Street’ on a small Balcony overlooking Dame Street, Dublin for the music viral show BalconyTV.


Kennedy was chosen as the Irish competitor for the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest in Athens, where he sang the self-penned “Every Song is a Cry for Love”. His performance in the contest’s semi-finals marked the 1000th song to feature in the history of the Eurovision competition. Following qualification, Kennedy finished tenth in the finals on 20 May, with 93 points. The song also performed well in the Irish charts, becoming a No.4 hit.

Kennedy performed at the opening of new studios for his local station Belfast CityBeat in 2006. In July 2008, he joined the judging panel of the Citybeat Young Star Search, Northern Ireland’s biggest kids talent search.


In 2001, he released his fourth album Get On with Your Short Life, which rendered only a No.81 placing for its title track in the UK. Later that year, he performed on the original Secret Garden version of the song “You Raise Me Up”, which went on to be recorded by many other artists, such as Josh Groban and Westlife. This was the song he sang at the funeral of the footballer, George Best in late 2005. His version was released again in December 2005 and early the following year became his biggest hit, released as the EP “George Best – a Tribute” with Peter Corry. The single reached No.4 in the UK charts and No.3 in Ireland.


In 1991, Kennedy was joined by Mark E. Nevin, formerly of Fairground Attraction to form the duo Sweetmouth. Their album, Goodbye to Songtown was released in August 1991 and featured the songs written by Nevin for a second Fairground Attraction album, which was never realised.


Around this time, he also scored a minor UK hit album of his own with The Great War of Words (1990). This album featured the lead single “Captured” which was a minor hit in both the UK and Irish charts.

In the mid 1990s, pop manager Simon Fuller took on Kennedy, signing him to RCA Records for his second solo album which saw greater success. Released in 1996, the album, A Better Man reached No.19 in the UK and spawned the hit singles “A Better Man” (No.28), “Life Love and Happiness” (No.27) and “Put the Message in a Box” (No.37), which also all became top 20 hits in Ireland. This was followed in 1999 by the album Now That I Know What I Want, which met with less success.


Kennedy made his debut in 1988 as a chorus on the recordings of Van Morrison, an Irish singer / songwriter born in Northern Ireland. Kennedy came to prominence as one of Van Morrison’s backing singers, appearing on a number of his albums, including A Night in San Francisco, Days Like This, The Healing Game and Back on Top and live in concert.


Brian Edward Patrick Kennedy (born 12 October 1966) is an Irish singer-songwriter and author from Belfast. He scored a number of hit singles and albums in the UK and RoI during the 1990s and 2000s.
