Teenage brothers Sean & Conor Price, who first made a name for themselves when appearing on X Factor in 2017, will release their new mini album Dreamer at midnight on 26 Oct.
From Blessington in County Wicklow, 18-year-old Sean and 16-year-old Conor started off busking on Grafton Street from the ages of 11 and 13 and it was here that they first shared some of their own songs with the crowds.
In 2016 the brothers released their debut EP called Change. There are four original songs on the EP, which went to number 9 in the Irish album charts.
Sean & Conor Price first audition on X Factor 2017 was in Edinburgh and they chose to sing Jimi Hendrix/Bob Dylan classic All Along the Watchtower. But it was not a straight cover – with the brothers bursting into a rap in between the famous chorus.
The busking brothers blew away the judges with their modern rendition of All Along the Watchtower, complete with a funky rap.
After a huge applause, Simon Cowell told the duo: “This is probably one of the best auditions we’ve had. I’m going to say something to you guys – I don’t want to change a single thing from what I saw and heard today.”
This audition has proved to be the third most watch video on YouTube in Ireland during 2017. Their journey on the Live shows brought them through three rounds and then into the quarterfinals where they journey finished, earning them a spot in the top 10.
Since X Factor, Sean and Conor have released three singles: Be Like You, Get Lost and Quit, each reaching number number in the Irish iTunes Charts.
Over the summer, Sean and Conor Price performed a sold-out headline tour of Ireland in 10 of the most famous venues including Dublin’s Vicar Street, The INEC Killarney, Millennium Forum in Derry and Ulster Hall in Belfast.
In October and November they bring their Tour to the UK with shows in London and Manchester.
We're told that Sean & Conor Price are also planning two Christmas shows for their fans which will be announced soon.
There'll also be list of in-store sessions in Golden Discs around the country to launch the mini album in October and November. Watch this space!
