Sinéad Mulvey

21 year-old Sinéad Mulvey started singing professionally at the age of thirteen when she was picked from hundreds of girls for the lead role of Cinderella in a Dublin pantomine.

Her passion for singing and dancing set alight, she has been working consistently on her stage performance since, appearing in many high-profile productions and TV programmes in Ireland. Sinéad came very close to representing Ireland in the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest when she made it to the national final. She was delighted when her dream came true this year as her performance with Black Daisy saw Et Cetera top both the public and jury vote in this year’s Irish final.

Sinéad says, “I have been a Eurovision fan for as long as I can remember. Representing Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest is truly a dream come true for me and I can’t wait to Rock Russia with Black Daisy and Et Cetera!”

Black Daisy

Black Daisy are an all girl pop/rock group who hail from Dublin, Ireland. 26 year-old LA Halvey (short for Lesley-Ann) from Limerick is singer and bassist, 21-year-old Nicki Billings, from Wicklow is on guitar, while Asta Mileriene, originally from Alytus, Lithuania is the drummer. Asta started playing drums in a band called AIRIJA (Ireland in Lithuanian). In 2001 she moved to Ireland and continued her music career with NOJUS, a Lithuanian band based in Dublin.

Black Daisy are a fun loving upbeat band, with influences ranging from 80s music to pop/chart music and of course good old Rock'n'Roll! The girls write their own songs and gig regularly in venues to audiences everywhere.

Black Daisy are Ireland’s only high profile all girl rock band, and intend to continue to play their infectiously catchy music all around the world....starting with Moscow!! The girls are delighted to team up with singer Sinead Mulvey to represent Ireland with the extremely upbeat catchy song Et Cetera, and promise to make Ireland proud in this year's Europe's favorite TV-show!
