In 2002 Sinéad Quinn shot to success when she came 2nd in the BBC1 TV show ‘Fame Academy’. As the only contestant selected by public vote rather than the judges’ panel, it is no surprise that she went on to release two hit singles and a self-penned album entitled 'Ready to Run'. She then went on to share the stage with artists such as Lulu and Justin Hayward when she played the role of Beth in Jeff Wayne’s musical production of War of the Worlds.

In her new project Sinéad has gone back to her roots by putting together her own band. Playing the music she grew up, Sinéad goes back to scratch to capture the classic sound of the country and rockabilly she was raised on.

In homage to this she decided to revive  the name of the Irish show-band who backed her mother, Philomena, in the 1960s. With her father Gerry, also a working musician, Sinéad grew up surrounded by the very music she now writes and performs with her own band.

Her love of music from the ‘50s and ‘60s is clearly evident in her own songwriting, although the influence of strong female artists since brings the feel up to date with a contemporary twist.  The band have been experiencing increased exposure, including a performance on BBC Radio 2 with Dermot O'Leary and Children In Need on BBC Northern Ireland.
