Kieran has toured internationally with various bands,  written and co-written over 60 published works, and produced over a a dozen records for various artists.

Currently Kieran has been touring as a singer-songwriter throughout the US and Europe, and as the front man for up and coming New York City based roots rock reggae band CC Roots.
