Sina Theil Delivers another #1 for Downda Road
Sina Theil Scores her 6th Download #1 with Crazy Women
It has been a busy year for Sina Theil.
Following her latest #1 summer anthem "Here for the Party" & her debut album "Under Cover" reaching #1 in the Irish Country Download Album Charts and #5 in the Irish Overall Download Album Charts, she just scored another #1 in the Irish Country Download Charts with "Crazy Women", an upbeat, tongue-in-cheek track that was originally written & recorded by Brandy Clark and mixes southern vibes with a catchy, pop-infused chorus. This is her sixth #1 Single in the Irish Download Charts since signing to Downda Road early last year and her ninth release in the top #3 Irish Download Charts.
About her latest release "Crazy Women", Sina said:
"The idea of this song is that...Crazy Women are made by crazy men! With a humorous tone, "Crazy Women" tells the story of an everyday woman who ends up taking justice into her own hands when pushed to the edge by her lovers' questionable behaviour."
Get it now on iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play and all major download services.
Davie Furey reaches #1 with "Secret Light"
Continuing with our roll of chart topping tracks, Davie climbs to the top of the charts with his emotive track. 'Secret Light' is something of a departure from Davie's previous more traditional folk-rock work, and this heart-felt and sincere ballad has served him well securing him a place atop the download charts and seeing him playlisted on RTE Radio 1, KCLR, LMFM, Highland Radio, Dundalk FM, CUH FM, Shannonside & selected as song of the week on Ocean FM. Davie has also appeared in studio on many stations including Spirit FM, East Coast FM and NOVA. We look forward to hearing more of Davie's brilliant new tracks in the coming months!
