Join Irish singer, songwriter, and actor Damian McGinty in spring 2018 for his biggest solo tour to date, showcasing music and behind-the-scenes insights from his upcoming EP of original songs. This tour will be fans’ first opportunity to hear these songs live, and to share with Damian in the excitement and stories behind the album.

His songs reflect these values. They are sometimes light and joyful, sometimes poignant and haunting, always without pretense. Underneath and through every song are woven strong threads of hope and love.

24-year-old Damian McGinty is an Irish actor and singer from Derry, Northern Ireland. His career began at the age of 13 when he recorded a charity CD, and his unmistakable talent and charisma quickly catapulted him into fame and success. 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 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 one million CDs and DVDs as well as over 400,000 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 auditioners, Damian was chosen to appear on the show with only 11 other hopefuls. Alongside several castmates 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 three.

With fans clamoring for more, Damian self-produced an eponymously 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). After that, Damian performed on several shows with Public Television, including “This is the Moment” with former Celtic Thunder castmate Paul Byrom, “The Power of Music” with Ethan Bortnick, and “Celtic Thunder: Legacy,” as Special Guest with the group that first introduced Damian to audiences around the world.

Damian spent much of 2016 on stage, touring Australia and the U.S. with Celtic Thunder and performing on the Phil Coulter Tranquility Cruise, and yet in the midst of all this he also found time to create and produce his first full-length album, This Christmas Time, released in October. In 2017, Damian plans to release a new album of all original songs. more >>>
