Keith “Weenz” Ryan, 29, from Pallasgreen Limerick brought his new hip-hop/rap album to a full house at Dolan’s Warehouse last week. Weenz has become a hugely popular figure and his fan base continues to grow with over 4,600 likes on Facebook. The artist launched his 10-track album Selling You My Sins after gaining huge publicity from his Local Celebrity music video which has now gone viral and attracted media attention nationally, the humorous video also features on the new album.
Selling You My Sins reflects on the Pallasgreen rappers life in his home county of Limerick, taking an honest yet light approach on his past experiences. “I had to convince myself that my intentions in continuing to pursue a musical career were purely artistic and the only thing that made sense was to focus the storytelling on the pivotal moments in my history without the frills,” he said after Campaign LK decided to go their separate ways. Limerick city band Campaign LK was formed in 2010 and gained huge success after
supporting The Rubberbandits on their nationwide Horse Outside Tour’ in 2010 and 2011. The hip-hop band sold out shows in Dublin, Galway, Belfast.
Weenz was not on his own in the making of Selling You My Sins, he worked with a number of musicians and producers which inculded Fabian Barrett, Joe Coffey, Ger Devine, Adrian Gotsomski, Shane ‘Dirt’ Davis, Mike Hogan and Cein Daly.
After wowing the crowd at Dolans Warehouse with his new album Selling My Sins is set to be a huge success. Weenz is hoping to market Selling You My Sins during festival season. Ryan is already working on new verses for his next album and has big plans for the future.
