About Sina Theil
"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 ten No.1 singles plus 6 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 7.6 million radio listener impressions and over 2,850 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.
Her new single “East Bound and Down”, a reworking of the Jerry Reed classic from Smokey and the Bandit, was commissioned to her for "Full of the Pipe 2019", Irelands' Biggest Truck Show. The track was released on all major download services on May 8th and reached #1 in the Country Download Charts, this being her tenth #1 Single. Her previous singles “Rock and Roll to my Country Soul” and b-side “Johnny B. Goode” were released late February and also reached #1 & #2 in the Irish Country Download charts.
Sina’s music videos receive regular play on Keep It Country TV, Europe’s largest Country Music TV Station, where she has also been interviewed on several occasions. She has appeared in Irelands’ leading celebrity magazine “RSVP Magazine”, The Irish World, The Irish Mirror, Irelands’ Eye and a number of other press publications.
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 have a lot in the pipeline for 2019, including festival performances such as “Cowboys and Heroes”, closing "Bloom in the Park" (Phoenix Park, Dublin), Full of the Pipe Truck Show, Convoy to Cooley, the Ballymore Country Music Festival... and further releases, which include a Celtic/Irish Folk album, as well as her original album, both of which are already well in the making.
