I've Been Condemned

by Kenan Flannery



During the first lockdown in Ireland, Kenan decided to spread some creativity and joy by releasing a 5 track acoustic Demo EP. The record went down great, successfully gaining tons of airplay and reviews. The record was received extremely well by critics and listeners alike.

Now in the midst of Lockdown 2.0 in Ireland, Kenan has decided to record and release a set of 3 tracks written and refined during a set of socially distanced jam sessions, before the start of the second lockdown.

‘I’ve been Condemned’ takes a darker and more emotional direction, discussing substance abuse, depression, heartbreak and sorrow. This EP offers its listeners a more honest and personal insight into Kenan’s writing mind, and it puts all the pure emotion in full view.

The discussion of mental health, especially the stigmas surrounding men, is huge at the moment. Kenan uses this record to emphasise the importance of speaking out, and he does not hide nor sugarcoat any element of mental illness or substance abuse. These are silent killers in our society, and this EP will hopefully make the listener take the lyrics, music and overall emotion into consideration, and remind them that they are not alone.
