Intro: Annika Kilkenny – the Kilkenny singer-songwriter with a beaut of a debut single ‘Look Mom I Made It’


Annika Kilkenny is an artist of eh, Kilkenny, whose debut single ‘Look Mom I Made It’ is a stirring slice of orchestral singer-songwriter pop.

It’s a superb debut, for a teenage artist who has been sharing songs on Tik Tok in the last year. Kilkenny learned the piano form her aunt, and soon began written songs, going on to win first place at a regional talent competition.

Lizzy McAlpine, Laufey and Emily Bear are stated influences.

Listen to ‘Look Mom I Made It’:

“I wrote ‘Look Mom I Made It’ as a way of leaving what’s passed behind me whilst also being content with that. It’s a tribute to the moments that are more difficult than others and a farewell to the tunnel vision experienced during these times. It was really important to me to include my mum in the artwork because she really is my rock and always has been since I was little (love you too dad). This song is for her and every mum that loves largely. ‘Look Mom I Made It’ is a deep breath after chaos – and I hope it acts the same for its listener…”
