Keith Forde is a talented Singer/Songwriter from the West of Ireland that manages to shine a fresh light on seemingly simple everyday occurrences of life. His way with words, wrapped in memorable melodies engage the listener very early in their delivery.
His second solo single ‘Love at the Airport’ is testimony to this, in just two minutes and thirty seconds, you are taken on a journey to feel the love and emotion that is often forgotten about when loved ones leave or return through the gates of an airport.
His single was launched under the Indie label SarMar Music on December 14th 2010. This also marked the launch of his new Music Video at the Workman’s Club in Dublin, Ireland.
