Keith Cullen chatted to us on the Gossies red carpet before he found out he had won Best Music Act.
“Tonight is my first and probably only night out so I’m gonna have some fun.”
The singer songwriter who is usually based in LA, is back in Ireland at the moment while he undergoes chemotherapy.
“Tonight is amazing, it’s really lifted my spirits so, I’m just excited to be here.”
Despite the shock he experienced when he was diagnosed with cancer he has been powering through his treatment, sharing his journey in the hope that it might help others.
“The support has been incredible, overwhelming to a point.”
“It’s a hard thing to share because it’s so personal,”
“But then my thing is the music’s very personal, so you let people in on that side, why not let them in to the real life struggle that you’re going through?”
His spirits were high as he spoke about being halfway through the treatment. We’re excited to see him get back to full health and head back to LA to continue making music.
