County Kerry Ireland
Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, Prince, U2, James Brown, Elvis, T.I., Queen, Guns & Roses
From the land that birthed such legends as U2, The Cranberries, Van Morrison and The Corrs, this soulful sexy pop trio are more than just a group they’re a family! Made up of sisters, Fiona, Nayome and Evangeline these girls have the kind of musical and artistic cohesiveness that only sisters can possess. Like they’re name (which loosely translated to a warm Mediterranean wind) Sirocco’s sound is a whirlwind of styles and genres. Reminiscent of Beyonce’s high energy get up and dance tunes, Pink’s lyrical smarts and Enya’s haunting harmonies, Sirocco combines the best of modern rock/pop/dance with elements from their prideful Irish heritage. In fact, the sisters consider music to be a sort of "in the blood" thing that has rippled down through many generations of their family tree. Growing up in a remote village in County Kerry Ireland, the spark of creativity was ignited at a young age, and the girls spent many years training in dance/singing/drama and music. When they decided to join forces in 2002 and dubbed themselves Sirocco, their talent, drive and determination resulted in them making a name for themselves around Ireland, releasing a debut Irish Album and performing with renowned European acts like Westlife, Girls Aloud and Gareth Gates. An invitation by Governor Pataki in 2004 to sing for St. Patrick's Day brought the girls to New York where they stayed for the next few years. In the summer of 2008, the sisters moved to the mecca of entertainment, Hollywood, California where they began work with Mark Jackson and Ian Scott, which has since resulted in their new sound. Their song "Brain On Music" has already been accepted into the phenomenally successful online dance game "Audition" and like their name Sirocco suggests, it won’t be long before this warm breeze gains its momentum and takes the world by storm.
