Born in London with an Irish upbringing, 21-year-old singer-songwriter Eugene McGuinness now calls Liverpool home. He's quickly become a notable pop singer with a distinct songwriting voice. His songs are infused with wry humor and a bit of swagger, as he comments on topics that would otherwise seem mundane, like procrastination, rainy English weather, and monsters under the bed.

In 2007, McGuinness signed to a prominent label and released his first mini-album, The Early Learnings of Eugene McGuinness. It's characterized by eloquently crafted lyrics, acoustic strumming, Cure-inspired rhythms, and lively pop melodies.
