Kelan Hughes from Bray and his band W.A.L.K.E.R. join artists such as Hozier and Rodrigo y Gabriela as the latest addition to Evolving Music Publishing.

The 19-year-old has signed a worldwide publishing deal with MCD and Live Nation boss Denis Desmond.

Kelan completed his Leaving Certificate and graduated from St Kilian's Community School in June 2017. Since then, the Bray man has focused all of his time and attention on his music career.

The band's first EP, 'Bringing Rock Back', was mixed by producer Michael Wagener, known for his work with rock legends such as Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne and Queen.

Kelan and the other band members Glen Walker, Ali Cruz and Peter Jordan are looking forward to a busy future, with their first single 'Time To Party' reaching number two in the Irish rock charts within 24 hours of its release.

W.A.L.K.E.R. are now focusing on 'Bringing Rock Back' to Ireland and their EP of the same name is out now.

The band will play live at The Grand Social on March 2. Tickets are available at
