A Little about Darragh................
Darragh McGann hails from Cobh, Co. Cork, Ireland and has been singing for many years both in Cobh and the East Cork area. In 1995, Darragh got his first real break when he was hired to be Stand-In and Double for the late Marlon Brando during the filming of the comedy movie “Divine Rapture”. While the movie itself was never completed due to financial difficulties, Darragh received great advice from “The Godfather” himself. While singing one evening on the set of the movie in Ballycotton, Co. Cork, Marlon Brando suggested to Darragh that he should consider recording some music and taking a chance.
Following the well intentioned advice from Mr. Brando, Darragh enrolled in Voice Coaching with the late Maeve Coughlan at the Cork School of Music where he received vocal training as a Lyrical Baritone. Since then, Darragh has also built up a reputation as been a "Singing Taxi Driver" and his success has brought him Television appearances on RTE's All Ireland Talent Show as well as "Seoige" where he was presented with the challenge of performing the Irish National Anthem at the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin in 2009 before a crowd of 50,000 people.
Influenced by various great singers such as Russell Watson, John Denver, Ronan Tynan, and Josh Groban, Darragh puts together a performance that demonstrates his unique vocal range covering songs from Contempory, Irish and Classical Genres.
In 2009 he released his first solo album “A New Beginning” which is filled with Easy Listening Classics from songwriters such as Bob Dylan, John Denver and even some of his own creations.
In April 2011, he released his second album “Inside Out” which shows his classical range with songs such as “Nella Fantasia” and “The Impossible Dream” to classics from Neil Diamond and Andy Williams.
In 2014, Darragh reached a new audience with his stirring performance of "Danny Boy" on ITV's Britain's Got Talent which got great comments from the celebrity judges which included music supremo Simon Cowell who described Darragh's voice as "Very Special". Darragh was later invited to perform the Irish National Anthem for 82,000 people in Croke Park and successful recordings with the Prague FILMharmonic Orchestra led him to scoring his first Christmas No. 1 on the iTunes World Charts with his performance of "Winter Wonderland".
Whether it is performing to packed venues in Ireland and abroad to recording some of his favourite songs for your enjoyment, we hope you will enjoy the experience of Ireland's Newest Singing Sensation, Darragh McGann
