In August 2008, three Dubliners—Danny O’Donoghue (lead singer, pianist), Mark Sheehan (vocalist, guitarist), and Glen Power (drummer)—burst onto the music scene with the hit song ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’. It had been a long time in the making.
Best friends since they were 12, O’Donoghue and Sheehan headed to Tinseltown at a young age, where, rather than fulfilling their dreams on stage, they found themselves in the studio, writing and producing songs for big-name performers, including Britney Spears, Boyz II Men and TLC. With that experience under their belts, they headed home and recruited Power, this time with the intention of putting the spotlight on their own band, The Script.
Since then, they’ve gone from strength to strength, with four number one albums, numerous hit singles, and two seasons as a coach on The Voice UK for O’Donoghue, which led to the release of the hit single ‘Hall of Fame’ in collaboration with co-coach and former Black Eyed Pea, will.i.am.
During the first half of 2015, the band are doing a whistle-stop tour across the globe to promote their fourth album, No Sound Without Silence (2014), coming to Barcelona at the end of the month.
