Eoghan O’Sullivan (soundcloud.com/eoghan) and David Graham have been performing together since the start of the millennium, sometimes as Hipster (along with their friend Nigel Hughes) and sometimes as a duo that once laboured under the name Slideshow.
A Perfect Christmas was born in a little stone house just outside the village of Lamastre, France, in November 2006. Eoghan had composed the tune a few years earlier and recorded a very rough demo with silly lyrics – nothing at all to do with Christmas. When Hipster rented a gîte for a week to work on some original material, David and Eoghan put new lyrics to the melody and first demo was recorded.
Fast-forward to 2014, when the studio recording finally gets its official release in Ireland on 12 December…and the rest is history waiting to happen!
Eoghan lives and works in Switzerland, currently taking care of alumni relations for a big international school. David lives and works in Dublin, earning his crust with a rather large technology company whose European HQ is in Dublin.
