This summer, the brothers released their fourth studio album, ‘He’s My Brother’, which took them on a slightly different musical path from their previous albums. It features their RTÉ Radio 1 playlisted single, ‘Don’t It Feel Good’, which is an upbeat, feel-good song. Their current single is ‘Love Is Like A River’, which has a country - gospel influence.
The album also features a stunning solo performance of ‘Always There’ by Des - a song composed by the same writers as ‘You Raise Me Up’.
The final track on the album is a remake of their very first single, ‘The Lights of The City’, which proved very popular on Tony Kehoe’s South East Radio Show reaching to number one spot on the most requested list for several weeks.
The Willoughby Brothers from Coolboy, Co Wicklow, will host a music weekend in Gorey.
