Bray People - - YOUR WEDDING -

DEL­GANY singer Rory Quinn launched his de­but al­bum ‘ Take a Seat’ in The Horse & Hound, Del­gany re­cently.

Singing to a packed au­di­ence, Rory took cen­tre stage at 9 p.m. to a crowd that were more than im­pressed with his vo­cals, mu­sic and lyrics and his abil­ity to work the au­di­ence.

23-year-old Rory re­cently came to promi­nence as a mem­ber of ‘ Team Bressie' on RTE's The Voice where he made it through to the bat­tle stages.

He writes all his own ma­te­rial and is very ex­cited at launch­ing his al­bum which con­tains 11 orig­i­nal songs and his very own ver­sion of that pow­er­ful bal­lad ‘Raglan Road'.

Rory started his ca­reer as a mem­ber of the RTE Youth Choir where he got to per­form with Westlife, and for many im­por­tant au­di­ences in­clud­ing Pres­i­dent Mary McAleese. He grad­u­ated from Dun­dalk IT with a de­gree in Mu­sic spe­cial­is­ing in con­tem­po­rary solo per­for­mance.

Rory sings, plays both pi­ano and gui­tar and de­scribes his sound as very pop with el­e­ments of R&B and soul.

Both the ti­tle track and name of his de­but al­bum is ‘ Take A Seat’ - and all 12 songs were heard for the first time at a very spe­cial con­cert in The Horse & Hound at the end of De­cem­ber.

CDs can be pur­chased from The Horse & Hound, Del­gany www.horse­and­hound.ie, cdbaby.com and soon to be avail­able from HMV.

An­other young tal­ent Remi Naidoo - with Tim McPar­land were the warm up artists prior to Rory tak­ing cen­tre stage.
