After making their debut in April of 2015 in the Róisín Dubh in the run up to the Marriage Equality vote, O’Connor and Sharpe are back. Sharpe takes O’Connor to more upbeat areas, as she leads him to more sentimental and heartfelt places. Blending their individual styles, Katie’s melodic vocals beautifully complement Steven’s flamboyant sass to create a lush sound. The realness is right here. Sharpe will also perform extracts form his theatre show The Realness of Miss Representation.
