Welcome

"When we introduced viewers to Colette Kavanagh and her video for “Someday,” we all knew we had discovered something special. Her ability to tap into the emotional core of listeners through her soothing vocals and intimately personal lyrics. In a world of artists fighting to see who can make the most noise, it was a welcome relief to find an artist still dedicated to the craft of songwriting."  Andy Gesner HIP Video Promotions.

HIP Video Promotions have promoted great artists ranging from established musical icons like Pearl Jam and Johnny Cash, to being on the ground floor championing breakout artists like Maroon 5, The Lumineers, Sia, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Death Cab For Cutie, M83, Armin van Buuren, Bon Iver, of Montreal and Paramore, amongst many others.

Colette Kavanagh is a singer-songwriter originally from Blessington, Co. Wicklow.  She now lives in Calverstown, Kilcullen, Co. Kildare, Ireland.

On her new single, “Hold On,” this songstress delivers another beauty of sweeping grandeur. Her influences such as James Taylor, Roy Orbison, Carole King, The Carpenters, James Blunt and so many more can be heard in her music. Each one is like it’s own individual thread weaving in and out with each other, ultimately creating a brand new musical tapestry.

My Song "Rebekah's Lullaby" featured in award winning short film "Skunky Dog" 

In 2014 my song "Rebekah's Lullaby" was used in a short film called "Skunky Dog" which was written and directed by the lovely and very talented James Fitzgerald.  It was recently shown on RTE 2 on the 22nd August 2016 and I watched it with great delight again and was so excited to see my name at the end under the music section !! WOW a dream come true and I'm truly grateful to James for having my song on his great film ! 

It has won 13 awards to date to include Winner Best Short Drama at the Royal Television Society in RTE !!

Have to say I've been quite busy here, working on new songs etc.  and had to share my appreciation and gratitude again to "Neufutur Magazine" for the lovely review they gave me and comparing my style to the fab "Kelly Clarkson" and the great "Sarah McLachlan" is really amazing !!  I'll be releasing my newest creation yet called "Last Kiss" to the general public shortly and I'm very excited about that.... In the meantime have let it out to a couple of DJ friends of mine Dave Baker and Adrian Nolan and their stations, BreezeAM and SpiritRadio who now have it on their playlists !!

    Last Kiss" - "Hey now! This song is great. Perfect vocals, perfect mix. Wow. I can easily imagine this epic ballad as part of a chick flick soundtrack. Catchy, too. Colette delivers a convincing pop vocal that can be compared to the likes of the great Karen Carpenter and it really drives this song home. If you're secretly looking for a new song to cry to alone in the car or the shower, then get it. Now. I really enjoy this one.”

    — Jenny Cat - Steel Notes Magazine

    "Up next is "Last Kiss" by Colette Kavanagh, an Irish contemporary-pop singer-songwriter. Colette has toured with Johnny Cash’s guitarist Bob Wootton from Nashville, Tennessee. It is clear why stellar musicians want to work with Colette - she is an extraordinary vocalist and songwriter. In "Last Kiss" the chorus is very melting and memorable, "If this is it. If this is our last kiss. If this is our last time to say I love you. If this is it, know that I have tried. I'loved you all my life." In addition to pulling on your heartstrings with romantic lyrics and beautiful melodic lines, Colette has a tender, sweet voice that is warm and inviting. "Last Kiss" is a song that will stay with you, like the last kiss from an endless love, long after it touches you.”

    — Review by Bryon Harris Indie Spoonful.

    Colette Kavanagh’s “Hold On” blends together vocals and piano in a stirring way. The gradual incline present in the track will have listeners on the edges of their seats as the track rises and falls. The track links together the singer-songwriter style with hints of Sarah McLachlan and Kelly Clarkson. The deliberate instrumental arrangements shine based on their ability to create a rich musical tapestry upon which Kavanagh’s vocals can reside. Instrumental and vocal sides unite to make something that will resound loudly in listeners’ minds long after the track has ceased to play. ”
