Nashville based, Australian born husband and wife country duo O’Shea have signed a recording contract with Sony Music Australia, with their debut album Mr. and Mrs. being released in Australia on Friday, September 30, 2011.
Mark and Jay O’Shea have achieved significant success on their own, but since marrying and moving to Nashville in 2007, they have built a loyal fan base in both Australia and the U.S. Their introduction to the American public was on CMT’s popular television series, “Can You Duet,” which carried them into the top five. They have since toured with some of country music’s biggest acts including Darius Rucker, Sara Evans and Phil Vassar, to name a few.
The record deal and album release caps off a landmark year for the couple who are beaming from the recent birth of their daughter Finley Avalon O’Shea and are enjoying the ongoing success of their TV show “O’Shea U.S.A.” which airs weekly on CMC in Australia.
“We’re so excited to be working with the guys at Sony. When you’re young, you dream about one day signing to a label like this!” says Jay. Mark adds, “This album has been a long time comin’…but now being able to work with such a great team, has really made it worth the wait!”
O’Shea will perform in Nashville at the Bluebird Cafe on Friday, September 9 and Music City Roots on Wednesday, October 19.
