"The energy and talent he brings to the stage is always captivating. When Liam's on my entertainment schedule I can rest assured that our guests will be leaving our showroom on a high.”

— Christine Streets, Cruise & Travel Director, Holland America Line

 
 

A brand new take on the piano-man tribute

In 2018, Liam set sail into the world of cruise ship guest entertainment, taking his brand new cabaret production Kings of the Keys and developing it into a two-show presentation for audiences around the world. At 28 years old, Liam presents a fresh and vibrant take on the piano-man tribute show format.

Liam doesn’t impersonate the artists, but takes audiences on a journey through the stories behind the songs, giving audiences the gift of hearing classic hits and old favourites as if for the very first time. Time after time, guests comment on the incredible energy and enthusiasm that Liam brings to the stage, the quality of his performance and appreciation of the storytelling element of the show.

 
 

“Liam takes his audience on a trip down memory lane every time he performs. He was very professional and only ever wants to give his audience what they deserve - the absolute very best.”

— Cuddy Cudworth, Cruise Director, Royal Caribbean
