The Greywind story is a potent reminder that a whole new world of possibilities could be waiting just a few clicks away as the band are set to take on The Academy in 2018.
Rewind a few years and the aspiring band had one option; to hit the road and get their talents in front of as many potential fans as humanly possible.
Steph, who admits to being an outsider as she grew up in the tourist town of Killarney stated: “I was shy and people probably just thought ‘there’s that weird girl who listens to My Chemical Romance’.”
Nonetheless they were inspired by the likes of Thrice and Jimmy Eat World, and have this week confirmed they’ll be taking to the stage in Dublin City on Saturday, March 24th this coming year.
The gig will promote their album which possesses the visceral crunch and soaring hooks of the bands that have inspired them, with the band revelling in the challenge of live performances.
