In less than a year, Picture This went from working class beginnings in Athy, Ireland to selling out two Dublin arenas in less than three minutes—moving a total of 100K tickets even before the 2017 release of their self-titled major label debut, Picture This [Republic Records]. Once you hear their spirited hybrid of folk, rock, and indie, it’s easy to understand why. However, the meteoric rise of Jimmy Rainsford [drums] and Ryan Hennessey [vocals, guitar] can be traced back to the emergence of their flagship song “Take My Hand.” Working in Jimmy’s D.I.Y. studio, they tracked the breezy “summer romance tune,” “Take My Hand,” and shot a befittingly charming and romantic music video. Before they knew it, “Take My Hand” had gone international with over 4 million cumulative plays and a deal from Republic Records on the table. The boys crossed the pond to record what would become their debut with none other than GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer Jacquire King [Kings of Leon, Of Monsters & Men] at the world-renowned Blackbird Studios in Nashville, TN. Within three weeks, they left the studio with the 13 anthems comprising the record. From the singles “You & I” and “Let’s Be Young” to the energetic “95” and poetic finale “Saviour,” the duo carry an undeniable energy throughout reflective of their humble outlook.
