James Murphy, Seán Costello and Frank Naughton hail from the West of Ireland and individually they each possess truly beautiful tenor voices but together it is a unique sound to behold.
The three came together many years ago to sing at a charity event in Galway, Ireland, and after that evening they never looked back. They’ve gone onto sing at many Festivals in Ireland and also had the honour of performing at The Ryder Cup which was held in The K Club in Ireland 2006. The boys were further honoured when they were invited to sing at the opening ceremony of The Volvo Ocean Race which was held in Galway in 2010, this hugely successful event was held in front of an audience in excess of twenty thousand people, a
proud moment for the lads I’m sure you’ll agree. In 2012 the tenors had the privilege of singing in The Ulster Hall, Belfast to a full house with the amazing quartet The Leading Ladies.
Although The Galway Tenors have always enjoyed working together they each have their own solo careers in music, James has sung all over the world at numerous events, while Frank & Seán have toured Ireland with not only their own productions under the guise of, “Duo Vocis”, they’ve also appeared many times in Ireland's premier venue, The National Concert Hall. Earlier in 2013 the tenors appeared in Edinburgh and in August 2013 they will perform in Las Vegas.
“We sing together as often as we can, so, as I have a business away from singing we like to make the most of any opportunities we get”, says James. James has been nominated this year for The Ernst and Young, Entrepreneur of the Year Award as CEO of Lifes2good.
Lifes2good is a rapidly expanding, global Nutraceutical business, marketing and distributing a portfolio of category-leading, exclusive and clinically proven brands across Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and Asia.
Seán is also an entrepreneur, he owns and runs a chain of highly successful hair and beauty salons around Ireland, a business which he has been involved in from an early age, “I love my business and job but performing is a huge part of my life and performing with the lads in front of a big audience is one of the big thrills of my life”.
Frank has been singing since he could talk and enjoys performing so much that he does it on a full time basis, “I just love it. They say if you have a job you love you’ll never do a day’s work in your life, well I’m that guy. I also love it when we three get together, it’s great fun but there’s serious music at the end of it all, long may it continue”.
