BIO

BRASH and striking with compelling, power-packed songs, new Irish band The Brilliant Things display all the flair and confidence of a seasoned outfit when they hit the stage.
It’s no surprise then to discover that each member of this exciting rock-pop quartet arrives on the scene with first class credentials as music artists.


Although still in their infancy as a group, the four 20-somethings have spent years in the business developing their talents.
Lead singer Marie Junior from Dublin previously dipped her toes in the music world as a solo artist called Sweet T.
While recording new material, Marie Junior teamed up with studio wizard Greg French and the pair soon developed a working relationship that led to the formation of The Brilliant Things. Greg, who was born in Wexford but is Dublin-based, had worked as a studio engineer with artists such as Bono, The Corrs and Van Morrison. As their sound developed, Greg’s cousin, Geoff French from Galway, was drafted in on drums. A former session musician, Geoff has played with the likes of Pixie Lott and Gabriella Cilmi. And in-demand musician-for-hire Mia Fitzgerald, a Dubliner who has performed with everyone from Taio Cruz and Rumer to Andrea Bocelli, completes the line-up as a full-time bass player.


The Brilliant Things arrive on the scene with a fresh, new sound that has echoes of T Rex and Blondie, but is totally unique. Another striking feature of The Brilliant Things is their image.
