Wow, ‘Listen to the Rain’….I love it. Going to play it in Jan show, HAD TO squeeze you in with this song, I never play slow songs on my show, this will be the first, but man oh man…I got to.    I love your voice and your writing. You are a talent.  I want to hear more from you. Send me a bunch personally, I love it.  – GENYA RAVAN (ROCK LEGEND AND PRESENTER ON LITTLE STEVEN’S UNDERGROUND GARAGE)

Fab. Incredible. I’m putting this into rotation immediately!  –  HAL ABRAMS (CENTRAL COAST RADIO, CALIFORNIA)

Love the album Tommy. Music very moving. Life in voice and sounds hits a chord. Well done. – AILISH BUTLER (AUSTRALIA)

I’ve had a good few listens to Ageing With Attitude and , fair play, it’s a great collection. Drowning in the Blues and Billy’s Song were real highlights for me as was Listen to the Rain.  Sax break on It Shouldn’t be Ending This Way is very classy too. – BARRY CURRIVAN (POET)

We love your sound! I’d be happy to add “Walk Away” and “Ageing with Attitude” to our World Music rotation and Folk rotation. – JENNA FEENEY (OHM RADIO 963, CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA)

Tommy you nailed it, classic ’70s sound on Walk Away! – JOHN ABRAHAMSEN (RADIO PHOENIX, ARIZONA)

Just treated myself to a CD! Tommy Keyes is such a great musician and songwriter, I just know this is one I will want, for when house gatherings resume! – GILLIAN TUITE (SINGER-SONGWRITER)

It’s a great album – JOSH JOHNSTON (SINGER-SONGWRITER)

Only got Tommy Keyes’ CD today – took it for a spin in the car. I honestly felt like a criminal only paying €10 for it. Class!  With an unbelievable line-up of musicians. – KEITH EASTWOOD (SINGER-SONGWRITER)

Listeners loved it! – MARIA McCORMACK (STRABANE RADIO)

Delighted to get my copy of Ageing With Attitude.  Tommy is one of those rare talents that manages to consistently delight his listeners while staying fresh with tricks galore up his sleeve. – NATASHA HELEN CRUDDEN (PERFORMANCE POET)

The songs definitely show that you are ageing with attitude! – SUBHAJIT DASGUPTA (SINGER-SONGWRITER)

Been listening to the album in the car and am loving the vibe.  Great rock ‘n’ roll tunes on it. Glad it’s getting the attention it deserves. – PETE KAVANAGH (SINGER-SONGWRITER)

A great songwriter indeed!  – RONAN GALLAGHER (SINGER-SONGWRITER)

Big thanks for getting the new album Ageing With Attitude to me – quality CD! Look forward to sharing it! – MICKEY DUFFY (FINN VALLEY FM)

I really enjoyed Temptation Once Again: many excellently crafted and performed songs there. Repeated listening threw up a varying selection of favourites, but the enduring ones for me were Just a Simple Love Song, Brimful in My Soul and the extremely touching Valentine. You have a great lyrical flair that is deceptively direct but must take great attention to achieve. Not to mention a way with a melodic hook that harks back to the great songwriters of the American seventies. All this, plus the apt arrangements and wonderful featured instrumentalists, make me very pleased to add this CD to my collection. – PATRICK KENNEDY (MUSICIAN)

Tommy Keyes has a voice you’d want to hug! It’s always the voice, Tommy. Oh… And the writing. And the telling of the story. And the band… The tune… 🤩🤩👍☝️👌 – FRANK PHELAN

Just listening to the album through decent cans. Lovely songs and really composed playing from the Farrellys, Dave Fleming and Richie Buckley – nice production too. I imagine you could throw Randy Newman in as an influence – no bad thing. Well done to Tommy and all involved. – MARTIN McEVOY (MUSICIAN)

Listening to your album – some lovely tracks on there. Very relaxing vibe! – TANYA FARRELLY (WRITER)

Had a quick listen to Temptation Once Again (nice title) on Apple Music, favourite track so far is The Moon And The Stars. Nice production and arrangements on the tracks and cool cover art. Good luck with the album. – JOHN D’ARCY (DIRECTOR, OPEN UNIVERSITY)

Best of luck with the new album…and make sure An Irish Life doesn’t get forgotten in the current momentum! It’s an artefact of the Irish experience. A standout favourite of mine from the last few years, at least. Keep rockin’, Tommy. – FRANK PHELAN

Really nice, just listened – love the production on it and really love the live strings on Valentine. – RUSSELL FEELY

I’ve put a couple of tracks from Tommy’s album on the playlist at the cafe and they stand up really well. I love Valentine. It’s a beautiful poignant lyric. – ANDREW LAWLOR (COFFEE BOUTIQUE, DELVIN)

I listened to Tommy Keyes’ album in one sitting on release day yesterday. It’s incredibly professional. I had a few weepy moments hearing lyrics about two lovers growing old and one being in a wheel chair as well as Tommy’s voice marrying with his daughter’s so well 😭 I’ve accidentally gone on his launch tour! It’s on Spotify & in Tower Records if you wanna check it out. Congrats Tommy Keyes – SARAH BUCKLEY (SINGER-SONGWRITER)

Tommy is not only a highly talented musician, but a staunch supporter of and a great friend to the performers on the unsigned scene in Dublin. Be sure to grab either a copy or a download of “Temptation Once Again” to give this wonderful artist the support he deserves. – NATASHA HELEN CRUDDEN (POET)

A message popped up on my phone that my preordered album had arrived…I thought a quick sneaky listen what harm?….1 hr later lol🤣👍
Love “Moon & Stars” & humming “Something’s broken” all day since…”Snakes & Ladders” hard listening ( at present!) “Valentine” tough at any time but part of aging …. it’s a very thought provoking album beautifully cast-thank you💞 – HEATHER CONNOLLY

A fantastic CD from start to finish. Well done to all involved in the production, well worth spending euros for it. This man is a fantastic singer and musician and he should be getting more airplay on all radio stations so for those who haven’t got it, make time to do so. – JOHN DULLY (WEST LIMERICK 102FM)

Listening to the new album and really enjoying it. Well done, Tommy, it’s a great job. – PETER SALISBURY

It’s a great album… something special about it. Wishing you well deserved success with it – SINEAD STONE (SINGER, AJA)

Lovely, Tommy, beautiful song and great arrangement 👍 – JOHN HENSHAW (MUSICIAN, THE IRISH CELTS)
