A Beginner’s Guide to Bravery took just a week to record at Hellfire Studio on the outskirts of Dublin, with Gavin Glass producing. A
week to record, perhaps, but there are lifetimes in it. And there are more lifetimes
being explored. Already, Keenan is playing new songs live – in front of huge
audiences supporting Hozier – and writing more in his notebook with the oxblood
leather binding, into which words pour every day. A Beginner’s Guide to Bravery is
brilliant, but its title is true. It is only a beginning. There’s so much more to come.
