Kieran Ridge is a Boston based singer and songwriter. He is best known as the lead singer of The Kieran Ridge Band. The band has released two CDs, their self-titled 2003 debut, as well as "Nothing Left To Lose" in 2006. The Kieran Ridge Band is very popular in the Boston, New England and New York regions. They also have a large following in Western Europe.

Ridge, a native of Quincy, Massachusetts, currently resides in Brighton, a section of Boston best known as a home for the local music community. Ridge worked as a union laborer on Boston's Big Dig highway renovation project in order to pay for the recording costs of the band's self-titled debut album.

The Kieran Ridge Band is comprised of Kieran Ridge on lead vocals, guitar, and harmonica. Chris Coughlin on piano, lead and backing vocals. Carlos Gonzalez on lead guitar, mandolin, and backing vocals. Drummer John Hannaford. And Brian Murphy on bass.

Kieran Ridge writes songs that give a voice to lovers and laborers, wandering strangers, convicts, outcasts and outsiders. Songs of good times, hard times, the road and romance, sung and played with faith, love, passion, intensity and desperation. The Kieran Ridge Band is a back to basics roots rock and roll band fusing together the basic elements of blues, country, and classic rock into their own unique style. However, it has been their intense live shows, in which their loud, hard-edged, bluesy rockers, mixed with quiet, tender, acoustic ballads have won over a wide cross-section of music fans.

The Kieran Ridge Band has received outstanding reviews from across the United States and Europe. Kieran Ridge has been called: "one of the best up and coming singer-songwriter talents of this time" by Freddy Celis of "Rootstime" in Belgium. Mr. Celis has also written that the listener should "take off your hat to their wide ranging mastery of their music," as well as saying that "Nothing Left To Lose" is "a perfect album" and "superb roots rock and roll."Reviewer Kevan Breitinger calls The Kieran Ridge Band "Nothing short of spectacular."

The Kieran Ridge Band is continuing to build a dedicated audience across the U.S. and Europe as through a busy touring schedule, an abundance of radio play, and a growing internet fan base. They are currently recording their third studio CD, due out in the Summer of 2007.
