The Majors//The Minors – Ciaran Coyle and Emory Ramsay

The Majors//The Minors will be heading to the Aviva Stadium in April to take part in the Irish Youth Music Awards after winning the Donegal selection gig. They will be performing the winning song ‘The Ocean’ from the band All The Cannibals who also performed on the evening.

Here they are, in their own words…

“Ciaran has been playing guitar for 4 years and in that time has developed a unique and cohesive playing style. He studies music performance at NWRC in Derry and plays guitar, bass, piano, ukulele and is currently learning the trumpet. He has been writing songs since he was 14 and creates sincere and emotive music. He takes inspiration from a wide variety of artists from the likes of Erik Satie, Modest Mouse, Pat the Bunny and Simon and Garfunkel. His biggest inspiration comes from Elliott Smith, finding the blunt honesty in his music heartening. He attempts to convey the same earnest expression in his own lyrics. Ciaran is extremely excited to be playing the Aviva in April!”


“A painter, sculptor, writer, poet, actor and musician, but above all, a dreamer. Emory studies Creative Media in Derry. And wants to see how far these passions can take them. A singer since before they could walk, Emory has always had a drive to make music. They play piano, fiddle, ukelele and guitar. Taking inspiration from the dry, airy tones of singer-songwriter Soak, and attempting to marry it with the breakneck philosophy of the Front Bottoms, Emory’s abstract and often dreamy lyrics can be interpreted in whatever way you see fit. Em is excited to share their art with you at the Aviva stadium in April.”
