Since the release of their first album;

Songs for the Tempted in 1989, with the single "Mary", becoming one of the most played songs on Irish radio, The Four Of Us have been producing nothing but exceptionally good in music.

Their first album went double platinum in Ireland and won Best Album of the Year at the Irish Music Awards, defeating the internationally known act U2.

The album Man Alive followed in 1992, and saw the group enter the UK charts for the first time, with the album entering the chart at 64, and the single, "She Hits Me" spending four weeks in the charts.

They released the largely acoustic-based and wonderful Classified Personal in 1999 and

Off the Record, an album of re-recordings of the band's best known songs in 2000 and included the previously unreleased songs "The Girl Next Door" and "She's So Real".

In 2003 the single "Sunlight" from Heaven and Earth, began to receive airplay and was voted fourth in a poll to find the 'best Irish single ever', conducted by, Today FM.

In November 2006 the band released their most recent studio album, Fingerprints and followed this with a live album Live At Vicar Street in 2009.

Throughout 2010 / 2011 via their Facebook page, the band previewed exclusive content, including previously unreleased tracks "The Way The River Flows" and, "I Guess I Wasn't Made For These Times" which was made available as a free download single for a limited period.

All studio albums have reached the Top 20 in the Ireland.

March 2015 "Birds Eye View" was premiered before getting it mastered for radio release on 8 April.

From what I’ve heard from their latest album Sugar Island they have lost none of the magic that makes them such an unique band.

Don’t miss them when they play in the Theatre Royal, Waterford on Friday 28th July
