Picture This originate from Athy, County Kildare. The duo consists of childhood friends, Ryan Hennessy (vocals) and Jimmy Rainsford (drums). The pair lived in the same town and attended the same school but only chose to record music in late 2015. Rainsford had previously toured with Ryan Sheridan, whilst Hennessy had been a member of another local band. In October 2015, Ryan Hennessy recorded a sample of the song "Take My Hand" on his iPhone, which he and Rainsford later recorded in studio. The video was uploaded to Facebook and Youtube and has amassed over 1.2 million views across all platforms. The duo's debut gig was to be played in the Grand Social venue in Dublin, which they sold out in under 30 minutes. To meet the demand, the gig was moved to The Academy, which has a capacity of 850 people. The duo became the first act to sell out the venue for their debut gig.
