An idiosyncratic, challenging and richly lyrical singer/ songwriter, Junior Brother is the pseudonym of Co. Kerry, Ireland singer Ronan Kealy. Chosen as The Irish Times’ Best Irish Act of 2019, and nominated for the 2019 Choice Music Prize for Album of the Year, Junior Brother has built a rabid following thanks to unmissable live shows, and music both excitingly forward-looking and anciently evocative. His strange stories unfold with reckless abandon upon a distinctive Guitar and Foot Tambourine accompaniment, influenced as much by the avant-garde as music from the middle ages and his home place in rural Ireland.

PRAISE FOR “PULL THE RIGHT ROPE

“There is a fierce, coarse wildness to Ronan Kealy’s debut album, which stands toe-to-toe with the finest folk that Ireland has to offer”
– Lauren Murphy, The Irish Times

★★★★
“Part of the new folk revolution that’s making household names of Lisa O’Neill and Ye Vagabonds, Killarney’s Junior Brother, aka Ronan Kealy, is a strange and wonderful talent.”
– John Walshe, Sunday Business Post

★★★★★★★★
“Overall, Junior Brother’s debut is very much like rural Ireland: raw and stark – but very beautiful.”
– Stephen Porzio, Hot Press Magazine

★★★★
“The tales told here are full of wide-eyed wonders and keen observations. Between the clatter of one and clarity of the other, Junior Brother’s songs are the real deal.”
Tony Clayton-Lea, The Irish Times

“Kealy’s trademark Munster brogue and keen turns-of-phrase feel equal parts familiar and bracingly unique. If you get a chance to catch Junior Brother live, do not pass it up.”
– Brian Coney, Dazed Magazine

“Kealy is not only marching to a different drumbeat, but creating one that we all want to march to.”
– Louise Bruton, The Irish Times

“One of the brightest, funniest talents in the country”
Eoghan O’Sullivan, The Irish Independant
