Today may be known worldwide as the day ‘Taylor Swift returned’ but to most of us on these shores it’s the day Picture This released their self titled debut album.
Yes, that’s right - our favourite Kildare duo managed to sell out a gig in Dublin’s 3Arena in three minutes, with an extra date due to demand, without an album released.
The 13 track album was released today and of course jumped straight to number one on the Irish iTunes charts.
It’s hard to believe that Jimmy Rainsford and Ryan Hennessy only joined forces at the end of October 2015.
Upon hearing Ryan’s unique voice back in the day after spotting him performing in local venues across Kildare, Jimmy invited Ryan to join him in his studio and volia, Picture This was born.
Two years later they signed a major deal with Republic Records and managed to sell out five dates in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and had hits with singles such as ‘Take my Hand’, ‘Never Change’ and ‘You&I’.
Not bad from two lads from Athy.
And we’re not the only ones proud of them.
