  • Can-Linn pairs traditional elements and instruments with urban styling. Singing for the group is Kasey Smith, a 23-year-old singer from Dublin. Kasey Smith became known in the girl group Wonderland, which went on to be nominated for a BT Music Award.

    After departing from Wonderland, Kasey travelled to Nashville, Tennessee. Eyeing for a solo career, she spent as much time as she could on stage performing. Kasey eventually returned to Ireland, where she hopes to continue her career.


  • Kasey Smith began her quest for Eurovision in 2013 when she entered the Irish preselection with the song “Kiss Me.” Kasey was selected as a finalist and performed on a special broadcast of “The Late Late Show,” where she received 3rd place.

    Returning in 2014, Kasey Smith entered the Irish preselection once again, this time with traditional group Can-Linn with the song “Heartbeat.” Selected again as a finalist, Kasey and Can-Linn performed on “The Late Late Show,” where they were declared the winner and Irish representative for Eurovision 2014.

    White lightening upon us again

    The wall is now paper thin

    And soon the sun’s breaking in

    Don’t you know, know…

     

    How the world is not always true

    Still my truth will remain in you

    We’ll be braver and start anew

    I know, know…

     

    Oooh…

    When the ocean’s way too deep

     

    Keep your head high above the water

    We can make it and break the border

    Hold on to my heartbeat

    My heartbeat, my heartbeat

    Face the danger and face tomorrow

    You’re a dreamer and you don’t know

    That no story is carved in stone

    Just hold on to my heartbeat

    My heartbeat

     

    The ground may be caving in

    And some wounds they may never mend

    But we’ll rise up and try again

    I know, know…

     

    Oooh…

    When the shore gets hard to see

     

    Keep your head high above the water

    We can make it and break the border

    Hold on to my heartbeat

    My heartbeat, my heartbeat

    Face the danger and face tomorrow

    You’re a dreamer and you don’t know

    That no story is carved in stone

    Just hold on to my heartbeat

    My heartbeat

     

    Keep your head high above the water

    We can make it and break the border

    Hold on to my heartbeat

    My heartbeat, my heartbeat

    Face the danger and face tomorrow

    You’re a dreamer and you don’t know

    That no story is carved in stone

    Just hold on to my heartbeat

    My heartbeat
