Bray’s Eoin picks Bressie in The Voice

Bray People - - ABOUT GREYSTONES -

A FORMER Bray M-Fac­tor con­tes­tant has made it past the ' blind' au­di­tions of RTE's The Voice.

Eoin Dixon-Murphy ap­peared on the tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion last Sun­day evening.

He was in the fi­nal of M-Fac­tor in the Martello back in 2010.

The Bray lad sang his ver­sion of the Bruno Mars hit ‘Grenade' while coaches Bressie, Sharon Corr, Kian Egan and Jamelia had their backs turned.

Bressie and Sharon both pushed their but­tons within the first few bars, both stars hop­ing for Eoin on their re­spec­tive teams.

He went for Bressie in the end, af­ter pitches from both coaches.

Kian told Eoin that he did not turn for the singer as he was too choppy, not ‘smooth and pol­ished' enough, and ex­pressed sur­prise that the other two had turned for him.

Corr how­ever, said that Dixon-Murphy was ‘unique' and ' re­fresh­ing,' while Bressie said that while he did not have the vo­cal abil­ity of other con­tes­tants, there was a tone there ‘ that just gets you.'

'I picked Bressie be­cause I thought I'd be more suited to a guy,' said Eoin. He now goes for­ward to the bat­tle stages of the com­pe­ti­tion.
