It’s been an astounding year for Jimmy Rainsford and Ryan Hennessey aka Picture This. With a #1 Debut EP still riding high in the charts and a sold out nationwide tour under their belt, the band have signed a major record deal with Republic Records – the biggest record label in the world. The boys will now be homed with the likes of the likes of The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Drake.
Fresh from the middle of a nationwide sold out tour, Jimmy commented “We were in New York for an organised showcase gig, not thinking much of it. We had four offers the next day. We organised a meeting with Republic and a few other labels of course. We played for the Republic team in their office and knew straight away we were the perfect fit for each other. We can’t wait for the rest of the world to hear our music”
Jimmy Rainsford (22) and Ryan Hennessy (21) joined forces at the end of October 2015. Upon hearing Ryan’s unique voice after spotting him performing in local pubs and venues, Jimmy invited Ryan to join him in his studio to record some tracks. After quickly hitting it off the duo decided to make the partnership more permanent and Picture This was born.
The #1 EP, which features well known hits ‘You and I’, ‘Take My Hand’ and the current smash ‘Let’s Be Young’, crashed Into the top of the itunes charts on release and it hasn’t left!
