Welcome to Declan Kelly music 

Brand new album, 'Views With a Room' out now on all platforms here, or purchase vinyl online here,

Declan Kelly’s first solo album in 10 years, 'Views With A Room' sees Declan searching for answers while offering encouragement and uplifting the listener. Filled with questions on masculinity, despondency, heartbreak and so much more, 'Views With A Room' is an album of self-reflection and shaping the narrative. Relating to those with real experiences of suicide, mental health issues and emotional isolation, Declan extends a hand to comfort those in distress while seeking solutions to his own troubles, ultimately finding answers in those closest to him. Delivering on the roots and pitch-perfect vocals we’re accustomed to – recorded in his studio appropriately called 'The Nest’.

Coming out of Lockdown Shows 

Emerging from a what has been a very strange year to say the least. Apart from the obvious and lockdown worldwide, this has been an interestingly creative time for many including myself in taking advantage of the time out from touring and all that goes with being on the go. My studio "The Nest" has been somewhat a saviour for myself and some of my music community. I am deep into a new album and creations that i am looking forward to releasing this year and throughout early 2021.... 

Stay Tuned
