Live – Dermot Kennedy at The Brighton Centre

Dermot Kennedy, The Brighton Centre, 3rd April 2023

Showcasing his new album Sonder, Dermot Kennedy played to a captivated crowd at The Brighton Centre last night. Speaking of the album, Kennedy explains that the word Sonder is summarised in The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows as “the realisation that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own… The meaning behind Sonder has resonated with me so much for years. I exist in an industry where we’re encouraged to think about ourselves only constantly, and I find that exhausting and uninspiring. I want to learn about you. Let us share all of our triumphs, all of our troubles. Let this music belong to all of us, to find our own stories and our own solace within it”.
