"On a mission to put Rock into Irish Country"
Originally from Germany, Sina Theil started playing piano and writing songs at the age of 7; picking up the guitar at 18 she has since flourished into an accomplished recording artist. Sina left Germany for Spain where she played with a local Spanish band and recorded her first demos before finally arriving in Dublin. Here she paved her way in the Irish Music Scene and became a student at the prestigious Music College BIMM. Funding her musical education through busking on the streets of Dublin, she gained invaluable experience and developed her performance skills as the lead singer of a rock group.
In 2017 Sina was signed to Downda Road Productions at which point she decided to pursue her music career full time. Since then Sina has scored twelve No.1 singles plus 7 other top three tracks - topping all this off with her debut album “Under Cover” charting at Number 1 in the Irish Country Download Charts and Number 5 in the Overall Irish Download Album Charts. This album encapsulates a collection of songs that have accompanied her and her manager Mike Gleeson on the road whilst gigging relentlessly up and down the country.
On the 29th of April 2019, Sina won the “Hottest Act in Irish Country Music 2019” Award at the prestigious Hot Country TV awards; previous winners being some of Irelands most successful Country Music Stars such as Nathan Carter and Derek Ryan.
Her music has reached over 3,850 radio plays on the Island of Ireland and her debut album "Under Cover" was voted one of the best albums of 2018 by the listeners of her local radio station Kildare’s Kfm. Her songs have also been played internationally, on stations located in the USA, New Zealand, Canada, France, UK, Italy, Belgium and South Africa, to mention a few.
Sina now also presents her own weekly radio show "Country Rocks" on Carlow FM (usually Tuesdays 8-10PM) sponsored by ISS Recruitment and HR Services.
Sina’s latest single “Good to be Back Home” is a duet with award winning Irish Country Singer Sabrina Fallon. The track was written by Navan native Davie Furey and charted at #1 in the Irish Country Download Charts. It also features on Sina’s upcoming Irish and Celtic Folk album “Reflections of a Celtic Heart”. The album celebrates Sina going into her fifth year in Ireland and also pays homage to Liam Clancy whose ten year anniversary is coming up this December. The album is expected to be released towards the end of this year/early 2020.
Sina’s music videos receive regular play on Spotlight TV, Europe’s largest Country Music TV Station, where she has also been interviewed on several occasions. She has appeared in a number of national and local publications (digital & press) including Irelands’ leading celebrity magazine “RSVP Magazine”, VIP Magazine, The Irish World, The Irish Mirror, The Tuam Herald, Irelands’ Eye, IMRO, the Kildare Nationalist, Leinster Leader and many others.
During her recent promotional tour of Thailand, the Bangkok guitar manufacturer Black Sheep Guitars made Sina a brand ambassador and gifted her one of their hand crafted guitars.
Recently she was also made a goodwill ambassador of Irish registered charity Touch Ireland, who aid youths and communities in developing countries to the likes of Zambia, Nepal, etc.
Sina Theil & Downda Road Productions are joining Hot Country TV on their Tour of Scotland in October and are also currently planning a tour for her new Irish & Celtic Folk album. Her original album is also well in the making and expected for early/mid 2020.
