Saint Sapphire Q&A

Band name:
Saint Sapphire.

Where are you from?
Belfast in Northern Ireland.

Who is in your band?
Samuel Morgan - Vocals, Guitar
Jack Walsh - Bass, Vocals
Thomas Ferris - Guitar
Andy Bowden - Drums

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
Liam Neeson herding sheep to loud guitars, loud bass, loud vocals and louder drums.

Who are your main influences musically?
Our influences generally range anywhere from the classic punk outfits like The Clash and The Buzzcocks to newer rock outfits like Foo Fighters, Green Day, My Chemical Romance etc.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
To make good tunes that people like, and to hopefully make a few quid to buy some new clothes.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Definitely when we were compared to Green Day on a radio station in England, that was really cool for us! To be mentioned in the same breath as one of our main influences alone is surreal!

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
We once played a gig in Banbridge just outside Belfast where everything was just not going well, we had received a bollocking from the headlining band who honestly weren’t very nice people at all due to misunderstandings with gear etc and everything was just going wrong, but everyone has bad nights! Happens to the best of us!

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Our newest single ‘Underneath The Sun’ is probably our favourite song (out of the ones we’ve released but more on unreleased songs later).

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?
We’re on most social media sites, just find us on Facebook at Saint Sapphire and find us on Twitter and Instagram on @saintsapphireuk

Anything else you’d like to say about your music that I forgot to ask?
