Keith Cullen is a Dublin born, singer songwriter who loves to perform and has just released his latest single “Say Something”. His style is classic acoustic pop with soulful streaks and a late 90s pop vibe. Keith Cullen draws inspiration from similar musicians that are not so different from himself including; Bruno Mars, Shayne Ward, OneRepublic, Adele and The Script.

“Say Something” is a pop ballad with a touch of R&B.  “Say Something” was written whilst Keith was in Los Angeles and has been chosen By Michael Damien for his new Smash hit movie “High Strung” featuring a stellar line up including Keenan Kampa, Nicholas Galitzine, Sonoya Mizuno, Ian Eastwood , Comfort Fedoke and the incredible Jane Seymour.

The single starts off as a traditional acoustic pop song that soon develops into a more upbeat dance track with a strong pulsating beat. The song features synth textures, lots of vocal reverb and background vocals “oohing” which all contribute to the hook of the undeniably catchy chorus. This song contains traces of a Justin Timberlake and Enrique Iglesias influence.

Keith teamed up with fellow singer/ songwriter and producer JJ Daly in 2009. Together they spent eight months in the studio recording Keith’s debut album. When asked to describe the album, he says he was really proud of the finished piece and cannot wait for people to hear it. He says that there is not a typical box that this album fits into.

Whether Keith Cullen will continue to produce great but undoubtedly safe pop songs or will push the barriers and venture outside his comfort zone – only time will tell.
