Belfast singer/songwriter Michael Kerr has released a stunning new video and single Life Goes On. The single is a first taste of Kerr’s new EP due out in 2022. The Fountain caught up with Michael to discuss the music and his plans for gigging again.

TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Life Goes On

Its been great I must say, its a very sad, deep and personal song but people seem to respond to it well, they get it. The combination of the song and video really gives the full effect. That’s what its about, getting people to relate and make them feel something. 

TF: And can you sum up the track in one sentence? 

Its the sort of song I never wanted to write but its what came out so its your problem now. 

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year?

The main thing for this year is to release music and get back into the swing of things. I’ve been writing and recording a lot and figuring out how to get out of this pandemic in one piece. The plan is really to re-introduce myself to the music world and feel like a musician again, it was a long lockdown of doing little. 

TF: When can we next expect a live show from you now that venues and gigs are kicking off again?

I’ve been planning more for 2022 to get back on the road. I’ll be heading to Kansas, Nashville and New York in February/March 2022 for the Folk Alliance and Sync Summits in line with the release of the EP and then look at shows back home in Belfast, Dublin and London. All still to be confirmed but thankfully everything looking good now.
