Darren Kiely Shares Lost While On The Road Home

Rising star Irish singer-songwriter Darren Kiely has dropped his debut EP, Lost. “I’m really excited to release a project that reflects on my journey to this point,” Kiely said. “This EP describes so much of the last few years of my life and I can’t wait to see what you think of it.”

Kiely’s unique presentation of folk-infused pop and lush storytelling, which echoes the backdrop of the Irish countryside where he was raised, is the forefront of his Lost EP. Kiely solo-wrote four of the seven tracks on the project and co-wrote the other three. Lost explores the triumphant war of overcoming self-doubt, struggling to find himself, questioning emotions and seeking answers. The EP features Mom & Dad, which was released this summer as an ode to Kiely’s parents for helping him through tough times. The song debuted in the Top 40 on the Irish Singles Chart and landed him in the Top 5 on the Irish Homegrown chart.

Lost also includes his new song Lost & Found, released last month. Following its release, Grateful Web praised Kiely, noting that he “masterfully carves out his distinctive sound, ensuring he’s not just another voice in the crowd but a force to be reckoned with…Kiely’s journey, filled with challenges, sacrifices, and milestones, is a testament to his talent and determination. The world waits with bated breath for what’s next from this emerging star.” Additionally, Sweety High shared that “Kiely has been making waves with stirring, emotional folk-pop ballads.”
