Picture This, Ireland’s band of the moment are releasing their debut self-titled album Friday August 25th.
Picture This grabbed the attention of Ireland when an iphone video of their track ‘Take My Hand’ went viral. A subsequent gig in Grand Social was upgraded to The Academy as demand was so fierce and Picture This became a force to be reckoned with. Fast forward two years and the band have a #1 Gold selling EP – which is still in the charts after 40 weeks, 30,000 tickets sold in Ireland alone and a second headline slot behind Stormzy at Longitude Festival this July.
Hailing from Athy, Co. Kildare, Jimmy Rainsford and Ryan Hennessy joined forces at the end of October 2015. Upon hearing Ryan’s unique voice after spotting him performing in local pubs and venues, Jimmy invited Ryan to join him in his studio to record some tracks. After quickly hitting it off the duo decided to make the partnership more permanent and Picture This was born.
Aside from making music and shooting ridiculously slick videos, Picture This also developed a Traffic Jam series where they perform with various artists in their car. So far they have had Gavin James, The Coronas, Christy Dignam, Ryan Sheridan and most recently none other than JP Cooper got involved! Expect more from this in the coming months!
