Declan Galbraith - boy singer. |
Declan's grandfather was a musician who played in Irish folk bands
and he regularly bought Declan along to watch him play. However, his grandfather died and it was his
mother who was the driving force behind his success. she entered him into many competitions from the
age of seven, and when he won told all the record companies and agents she could. Her persistence finally
paid off when Barry Mason went to see him compete in the National Youth Talent Competition of 2001.
Barry Mason liked what he heard and after recording one track (Walking in the air) for a Christmas compilation
album and with the help of his new agent Max Clifford , was able to secure a three year contract with
EMI. Declan Galbraith first CD and single 'Tell me why' have now been released.
