Biography

Kieran Goss is one of Ireland's most romantic singer/songwriters. With melodies that reflect the influence of such American pop-folk singers as James Taylor and Paul Simon and Irish singer/songwriters such as Christy Moore, Goss aims at the heart with his poetic lyricism. A former sideman for Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson, Moore, Clannad, and both Mary and Frances Black, Goss has garnered acclaim with three powerful solo albums. The tenth child born to a family of 15 children, Goss began playing guitar and piano at age nine. His debut public appearance came during a summer trip to the U.S. in the early '80s. While studying law at Queen's University in Belfast, he performed cover tunes in local pubs. Although he qualified to become a barrister in 1985, the lure of music proved greater. Setting out to seek his fame and fortune as a musician, Goss backed up a variety of different performers. After meeting the Black family at a festival, he was invited to accompany Frances on a tour. Goss and Frances continued to play together for four years, recording a duo album, Frances Black and Kieran Goss, in 1992. Goss also supplied instrumental accompaniment for Mary, who recorded two of his songs -- "Brand New Star" and "Love Is Just 'Round the Corner." Goss' debut solo album, Brand New Star, released in 1988; it was followed by New Day in 1994 and Worse than Pride in 1998. ~ Craig Harris
