After kicking off his career at just 12 years old, busking on the streets of Galway, Robbie Monaghan is rapidly earning a reputation as a star-in-the-making. In 2019, the young singer-songwriter made it to the semi-finals of X Factor: The Band, where Nicole Scherzinger joined him on stage for his rendition of The Pussycat Dolls' 'Don't Cha'. The video of the performance has since clocked up over 1.4 million views on YouTube. His Y&E Series set coincides with the release of his new single, 'Replaying The Moments'.
The Hot Press Y&E Series is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. Watch Robbie Monaghan performing live tonight on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 7.30pm.
