Picture This arrived as a phenomenon with their self-titled 2017 full-length debut. Certified triple-platinum in Ireland, it held the #1 Album chart position in the country for four weeks, while topping the Streaming chart for seven weeks. Moreover, it’s remained in the Top 5 since release—only bested by Ed Sheeran’s Divide last year.

Two years since their formation, they’ve impressively sold over 250K tickets, concluding 2017 with a sold-out UK and Ireland tour highlighted by gigs at O2 Shepherd’s Bush London, SSE Arena Belfast, and a two-night stand at 3Arena in Dublin. This summer the band play their biggest sold out show to date in Dublin’s RDS Stadium on June 23rd. They also play two sold out nights in Cork’s Live at the Marquee on June 19th and 20th.

Picture This – You & I

PICTURE THIS
“You And I”
Released 9th February 2016

Kildare newcomers Picture This have just announced details of their official debut single, “You And I” released on Tuesday 9 February.

Hailing from Athy, Co. Kildare, Jimmy Rainsford (22) and Ryan Hennessy (20) joined forces at the end of October 2015, after Jimmy spotted Ryan performing in local pubs and venues. Upon hearing Ryan’s unique voice, Jimmy invited Ryan to join him in his studio to record some tracks. After quickly hitting it off the duo decided to make the partnership more permanent and Picture This was born.

Setting up the band’s Facebook as a way to promote their music quickly saw Picture This’ fanbase rise from friends and family to over six thousand fans in just twelve short weeks with their videos being viewed over six hundred thousand times. The talent of the two lads was quickly spotted by major record labels with an offer already being put on the table.

“You And I”, the band’s first official release eagerly awaited by their fans is released on Tuesday 9 February. Already off to a fantastic start, “You And I” has been chosen as the Select Irish song for the month of February by FM104, Q102, Cork 96FM, LMFM, and Limerick’s Live 95FM.
