SOLO ARTIST

DAMIAN MC GINTY

Damian McGinty stole the hearts of Celtic Thunders American audience 10 years ago with his heartwarming “Come By the Hills” and fun performance of “Puppy Love” at the tender age of only 14. Damian has since lost the retainers and is a lot taller these days! Fans will love his rendition of Ed Sheeran’s “Galway Girl” get a few laughs watching his “Bye, Bye Baby” and enjoy “LOVE” in the latest Celtic Thunder Show Celtic Thunder X.

In less than a decade, Damian Mc Ginty has gone from a 14 year old singer in the local church choir, to an internationally adored 24 year old singer and actor with a fan base several times the size of his hometown population.

Damian was born in Derry, Northern Ireland. Selected in 2007 by producer Sharon Browne and musical director Phil Coulter to join the inaugural cast of Celtic Thunder, Damian quickly became a fan favorite for his friendly charm and his big voice. deep baritone voice. In the time he was with the group, Damian performed in six specials for Public Television and completed four coast-to-coast tours of the U.S. and Canada, and Celtic Thunder sold over two million CDs and DVDs as well as over a million concert tickets.

Following his own advice to “Dream Big,” Damian took his career to the next level by auditioning for the Oxygen network’s “The Glee Project” in 2011. Out of 40,000 applicants, Damian was chosen to appear on the show with only 11 other hopefuls. Alongside several cast-mates with exceptional talent, Damian’s work was cut out for him. Extreme dedication and an intense work ethic took him to the final four, and ultimately he was chosen as one of two winners. As a winner of the project, Damian landed a guest star role in Fox’s hit television series “Glee,” as foreign exchange student Rory Flanagan. Initially slated to appear in just seven episodes, Damian was so popular his role was extended to finish out the rest of Season 3.

With fans clamoring for more, Damian self-produced an eponymous titled EP in late 2012. The 5-track album raced up the iTunes charts to hit #3 in the U.S. (as well as #1 in Ireland, Mexico, and Peru).

In 2013, Damian returned to the Public Television forum. First, he worked with former Celtic Thunder cast-mate Paul Byrom in Paul’s PBS special, “This is the Moment,” and then he appeared with child prodigy Ethan Bortnick in Ethan’s special, “The Power of Music,” which went on to be a #1 concert pledge show on PBS. To the great delight of eager fans, Damian toured across the U.S. with Ethan in the 2014 “The Power of Music” spring and fall tours.
