About Sina

"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 a guitar at 18 and since flourishing into an accomplished recording artist. Sina left Germany for Spain where she played with a local Spanish band and recorded her first few demos, before finally arriving in Dublin to pave her career on the Irish music scene and becoming a student at BIMM. While making her way busking on the streets of Dublin, she gained experience in live performance as the front-woman of a rock group.

In 2017 Sina was signed to Downda Road Productions and has since scored eight #3 singles in the Irish Country Download Charts including five #1 singles. She also achieved a #2 with the single "Sam's Coming Home" which was recorded for Mayo based Childhood Cancer Charity Gearóid's Smile. The song was centred around Mayo's unsuccessful bid for All Ireland glory in 2017. Sina's connection with Mayo GAA goes back to a chance recording of her reworking of "Galway Girl" outside McHale Park which received over 91,000 views and resulted in a major increase in her popularity and constant gigging, especially in the West of Ireland.

Her debut covers album "Under Cover" was released on iTunes and major Download Services on the 27th of June and charted at #1 in the Country iTunes Album Charts and #5 in the iTunes All Genre Album Charts.

Sina's the first release off the new album is a true Summer Anthem called "Here for the Party" (originally recorded by Gretchen Wilsons) which also reached #1 in the Country iTunes Single Charts and voted as "Song of the Week" on Kfm. 

To date, Sina's songs have been played on many Irish and UK based stations including C103, ClareFM, Midwest Radio, Midlands 103, Kfm, OceanFm, Radio Kerry, RedFM, Highland Radio, BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, BBC WM, Galway Bay, LMFM, Tipp FM, WLR and many more and stacked up 1.89 Million radio listener impressions and almost 800 radio plays as registered by Radiomonitor.

Another of Sina's original tracks 'Weight of the World' appeared on the Charity Album 'The Positive Touch' alongside songs from artists such as Paddy Casey, Mundy, The 4 Of Us, The Devlins, The Blades, Gavin Glass and more. During a very successful launch at The Workman's Club in Dublin, Sina gained great exposure as she joined Paddy Casey and Mundy on stage for a memorable performance and was awarded "Song of the Week"on Highland Radio, KFm, Dundalk Fm, Way Out Radio UK, and Belgium Country Radio. More recently, she has been featured and interviewed on Keep It Country TV and appeared in RSVP Magazine, the Irish Mirror and various local press publications.

"Under Cover" is a collection of songs that have accompanied her and her manager Mike Gleeson on the road while gigging up and down the country for the past year. 

She is currently still gigging all around Ireland and working on her original album which she is expected to release later on in the year and is set to establish her as a major player on the Irish Country Rock scene. She will also make various festival appearances this summer such as The Secret Village Festival, Battle for the Bay & Battle for the Lake, Dublin Goes Country, etc some including a full band performance with alt-rock band Vagabonds and Thieves.
