If you write David Keenan’s story down and read it back to yourself it feels almost too good to be true. The Irish kid from a council estate in Dundalk, County Louth; who found an old Hofner guitar in his uncle’s cupboard. Who ran away as a teenager to busk on the streets of Liverpool in search of his songwriting hero, The La’s lost mystic Lee Mavers. Who got discovered when a taxi driver filmed him singing a song he wrote when he was only 15 on the back seat. Who, even after the international success of last year’s stunning debut “A Beginner’s Guide To Bravery” still managed to move to Paris as artist in residence and get a book of poetry published.

It would make a great film. You know the sort: young adventurer sets off to conquer the world with a headful of dreams and a heart full of song. You can see it now, tousled haired leading man looking wide-eyed as a myriad of adventures unfurl ahead of him…
