Hey Folks,

I really enjoyed catching up with Keith. I'll let this Podcast do the talking as it was a great chat where we talked about growing up in South Dublin in the late 80s and how vibrant the music scene was back then.
Please see the links below to see what Keith has been up to over the last few years.

Power of Dreams released a new album in 2021 and have an Irish tour March 2022.
Press release and dates below.
Ausländer, the much awaited comeback album from seminal Irish indie band Power of Dreams is out now via The state51 Conspiracy. Thirty-one years since the release of their seminal debut album, Immigrants, Emigrants and Me, Ausländer is a vibrant and reflective companion piece to the earlier release; very much informed by songwriter Craig Walker’s Irish roots and years of touring living in England, France and Germany.
Recorded between Berlin, Bath, London and Arizona, Ausländer (the German word for foreigner) bears many of the hallmark sounds of one of Ireland’s most enigmatic bands of the 90s while Walker’s subsequent development as one of Europe’s busiest songsmiths is evidenced throughout.
Featuring original members Craig Walker, Keith Walker, Ian Olney and joined by producer / bassist  Erik Alcock (Pink, Celine Dion, Eminem) and on keyboard and mixing duties Ali Staton (Turin Brakes, Snow Patrol, Lightning Seeds, Madonna), Ausländer brings a wealth of musical talent to the table.
Tour dates
March 12th – Mike The Pies, Listowel.
March 13th – Cyrpus Ave
