It's been a busy few months for Sinead O'Connor, from announcing she would no longer be singing "Nothing Compares 2U", news that she's an expectant grandmother & an application to join Sinn Fein to writing a new national anthem for Ireland & of course touring the chart-topping album "I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss".
Sinead joins Brendan in studio this morning.
Their music has been compared to the hymnal quality of Fleet Foxes & the folk melodies of Simon & Garfunkel. Their debut album 'Rhythm of Dawn' is receiving rave reviews & brothers Jamie and Richie Martin, aka Cry Monster Cry, are in studio with Brendan for a chat & performance.
This morning we announce another emerging music competition in collaboration with the Saturday Night Show.
