Born and bred in Dublin, Ireland The Ennis Brothers are an Irish country music duo built around the melodic harmonies of twin brothers Matthew and Owen Ennis. They grew up listening to the timeless country sound of their grandparents favourite artist, The Everly Brothers. It was this early experience with country music which would go on to help shape Matt and Owens sound. They both started writing songs and learning guitar in their teens performing on RTE television aged 15 on 'Class Act' singing one of their favourite Everly Brothers songs 'Bye Bye Love'.
They had a flying start to 2018 as runner's up in Nathan Carter's 'Search For A Star' competition, winning a support slot on Nathan Carter's tour. They went on to support Nathan Carter at the Theatre Royal for 2 nights in Waterford, The TLT in Drogheda and the Radisson Blu Athlone. Through 2018 they also performed at a number of other events across Ireland such as the Northern Ireland Golf Open, Cowboys and Heroes country music festival with the Chris Dallat Band and the Cool FM Stage at Culture night in Belfast.
Kicking off 2019, The Ennis Brothers released their debut single ‘Wake Up Little Susie’ in January. ‘Wake Up Little Susie’ went straight in at #1 on the Irish iTunes Country Music. Matt and Owen then joined Derek Ryan on his 'TEN' concert tour in venues such as INEC in Killarney, The Cork Opera House and The Royal Theatre in Castlebar.
Their second single 'Louisiana Saturday Night' was released in May and went straight in at #1 on the Irish iTunes Country Music Chart. The Ennis Brothers had a very busy summer, from headlining the Downtown Country Radio stage at the Balmoral Show, to performing alongside the likes of Nathan Carter, Derek Ryan and Cliona Hagan at festivals such as Cowboys and Heroes and the Celbridge Country Music Festival.
October saw the release of their 3rd single 'Bye Bye Love' which also debuted at #1 on the Irish iTunes Country Music Chart. Making this their 3rd consecutive Irish iTunes #1. The Ennis Brothers then supported Cliona Hagan for her Dancing With The Stars Afterparty Dance at the Gleneagle Hotel.
The Ennis Brothers have already started 2020 with a bang, picking up the award for ‘BEST NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR’ at the Sunday World Country Music awards on January 27th in Mullingar.
They are currently in the studio recording with Producer Johnathan Owens. They are set to release their first original song which they co-wrote with Derek Ryan.
