Editorial Reviews

Keith Harkin, a twelve-track collection split between classic covers and original compositions, illustrates the artist's skills as both an interpreter and a writer. The album's first single is the bittersweet traveler's plea, Don't Forget About Me, which will be accompanied by a video.

"I love all music, and a lot of my influences are on this record," says Harkin. "Neil Young, pop, dance, country I love Glen Campbell. I see it like an old-school Elton John record, where he would play rock next to country next to folk. It's quite a broad horizon."

Cover versions of rock and pop classics include Van Morrison's Have I Told You Lately That I Love You, featuring a duet with two-time Grammy® Award winner Colbie Caillat, Tom Waits' The Heart Of Saturday Night, Everybody's Talkin', which Harkin mastered at age 13, and a powerful version of Don Henley's The End of the Innocence.
In addition to Don't Forget About Me, other self-penned tracks include the gently rolling, heartfelt love song Nothing But You & I, and the yearning ballad, Rosa, which Harkin considers one of the best tracks on the album, adding, the first time I heard the strings added at Abbey Road Studios, I was in tears.

Prior to a solo tour of the U.S. in late spring 2013, look for Keith Harkin performing with his band mates in Celtic Thunder in the U.S. and Canada in late summer and fall 2012, and Australia in early spring 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Musical Gem September 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Keith Harkin is sure to be a Grammy winner for this debut CD. In an eclectic mix of styles, Keith's Irish roots and unique musical vision shines through this collection of covers and original songs. You think only George Harrison could do justice to Here Comes The Sun? Think again! Keith's version is both mystical and joyous. And Don Henley's End of the Innocence? After you hear Keith's rendition, Irish-flavored by Barry Kerr's Uillean pipes and whistles, you'll say "Don Who?" His duet with Colbie Caillat, Have I Told You Lately That I Love You is sweet, simple, and emotional.

Keith Harkin is, more than anything, a gifted songwriter. Poetry set to music, every song is a jewel. The two best songs on the album, Orange Moon and Rosa, beautifully showcase his skill as a lyricist and composer. In Orange Moon an upbeat, catchy tune masks conflicted yearning for lost love complicated by the pull of the road. Rosa is a tender love song, so poignant that the first notes bring me to tears at every listening. With every word he writes, Keith shares his heart and soul.

For those of us who have followed him since the Celtic Thunder juggernaut introduced him 4 ˝ years ago, Keith's debut album has been a long time coming. But, man, is it worth the wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars An all-around win! September 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
By far the most exciting tracks on the CD for me are the ones Keith wrote himself. I've listened to his songs before, so I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. "Daisy Fields" is catchy and true to Keith's style, but it isn't my favorite. I much preferred "Don't Forget About Me," a song that is both reflective and forward looking. With its upbeat, joyous attitude it is a great choice for a first single release. Keith knows that audiences love songs they can sing to, so he gave this tune a great hook. If you listen to it a few times I promise you'll find yourself humming it as you go about your day.

"Nothing But You & I" is an honest love song about discovery and longing. The way Keith delivers it, with genuine need and vulnerability, will touch your heart. "Rosa" has a lullaby feel to it - and I admit, I'm a sucker for a good lullaby. Keith's sincere vocals and the gentle piano will pull you into that tender moment when a father watches his baby girl sleep, knowing he has to leave her for a while. It is an intimate, touching song, reminiscent of Don Henley's "Annabelle" in a very good way.

I believe "Orange Moon" & "Take It Away Boys" are also Keith's own writing (I don't have my CD yet, so I'm basing that on his website that said 6 of his songs made it onto the album). I really enjoyed these two as well and thought they were a great addition to the album. Just a couple of comfortable country toons that give a lot of insight into who Keith is as a musician and singer.

Let me start by saying that Keith takes on some big landmarks as cover tunes go, especially Henley's "The End of the Innocence." I am a diehard Henley fan, so this was the cover song I most anticipated. I have to say Keith definitely makes it his Irish own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Talent - Amazing Tunes - Amazing CD September 18, 2012
By Julie J
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD has a bit of everything for everyone. Keith Harkin's multiple musical styles and talents are given the spotlight, and he shines brightly! Keith's first offering shows off his song-writing abilities and musical talents. Keith breathes new life to the songs that he covers on the CD - End of The Innocence, Tears of Hercules, Everybody's Talkin', Here Comes The Sun, Have I Told You Lately, and The Heart of Saturday Night. The new melodies (Rosa, Don't Forget About Me, Nothing But You & I, Daisy Fields, Orange Moon and Take it Away Boys) are amazing; the lyrics are catchy and heartfelt; and Keith's voice is golden! Keith Harkin's debut CD is a "must have" for anyone's CD collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! September 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've had the privilege of watching and listening to Keith Harkin as he's grown into the polished artist that he has become. I knew his solo cd was going to be great but I was blown away by just how great it is. Beginning to end this cd far exceeds any other as most cd's or albums have a couple of really great songs..this one is is a musical journey all the way through!
The most enjoyable songs to me are "Daisy Fields" which I had heard the first rough cut of this song that was written and song on the Celtic Thunder tour bus..I loved it then as an acoustic version and couldn't believe how Keith Harkin turned it into a complete song. The songs "Tears of Hercules","Orange Moon" and "Don't Forget About Me" are different styles but are all amazingingly great songs each can stand on it's own. Finally, I must say "Rosa" is a delightfully sad song..if that's possible? and obviously Keith Harkin proved that it is.
Amazing!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal New Album September 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Which takes more talent-taking a song you never really liked and making you LOVE it(which Keith did with Celtic Thunder, when he performed Van Morrison's 'Moondance' in Kansas City last October), or taking a song you already liked (Don Henley's 'The End of the Innocence', on this album) and making it send shivers up and down your spine? Folks, there is NOT a dud in the bunch, here. This album is MORE than WORTH the wait Keith's adoring fans have had. We've been anxiously awaiting this for years, and holding our breath (figuratively, of course) since pre-orders opened in July. Me, I almost mobbed the poor UPS guy when I got my copy today! I AM in 7th heaven! Keith's originals showcase well his amazing skills as a songwriter, and all the songs chosen show off his vocal range and talent. A Thesaurus has no superlatives good enough to praise this album, so I've made up one of my own-it's HOLYSHIMAZINFANFREAKINTASMAGORICAL!
