Best known as a singer with successful girl band The Saturdays, and also as a TV judge on The Voice, singer-songwriter Una Healy has waited a long time to release a solo album, but The Waiting Game is finally over… and out.
Hot Press meets Una Healy in the bar of a south Dublin hotel the afternoon after her debut Irish headline show as a solo artist. The attractive 35-year-old is still buzzing from the warm reception she received in the Sugar Club.
“It went brilliantly, I loved every minute of it,” she enthuses, speaking in a soft Tipperary accent. “The crowd were really behind me and it’s just lovely to have that response for what was a bit of a homecoming gig, for my first headline show.”
The venue itself also brought back some memories. “I actually played there in 2005 when I supported this duo called Sons of Jim,” she recalls. “The reason why they were called Sons of Jim was because both their dads were called Jim. And one of them is Jamie Dornan from 50 Shades. He was a model, musician, actor and I think he got strongly into acting after that.
