‘Steve beautifully communicates his vulnerabilities in his music — he does the same in this powerful story’ Niall Breslin


As lead singer and songwriter of hugely successful Irish rock band Kodaline, Steve Garrigan plays to thousands of fans worldwide – his business is being in the spotlight. But, for years, Steve was privately battling his own demons.
High Hopes is a deeply personal memoir about how everyone carries a story. In his down-to-earth and often humorous style, Steve takes us from his childhood growing up in Dublin and the shyness that only dissolved in front of a microphone, to the highs of rock star success touring and playing stadiums, and the lows of anxiety, depression and panic attacks.
Ultimately, his story describes how it is only by learning to share our deepest vulnerability – embracing all aspects of our true selves – that we can work through darkness and ultimately find freedom.
