19. Dermot Kennedy: Disconnecting from reality
Dermot Kennedy went from busking in Dublin to being one of the most streamed Irish artists, and his story is one of self-determination and hard work. During the 2020 lockdown, he's been working on the follow up to his debut album which reached number 1 in the UK and Irish charts and sold more than a million copies.
Just back from a solo road trip across the United States, in their conversation, Dermot opens up to Joe about the pressures of life on the road, and the importance of keeping healthy and grounded. He explains why he finds true escapism in a couple of hours playing PlayStation, and why he's never happier than being surrounded by the Irish countryside.
This is sunshine in a podcast. Joe Wicks is here for you, and he won’t stop until you’re fit and happy.
