The Priests (three priests from Northern Ireland — Eugene O’Hagan, his brother Martin O’Hagan and David Delargy) are practicing Roman Catholic priests who were brought together by their faith and passion for music and who grew up singing together while also studying for the priesthood. All in their late forties, they have spent their lives using music to spread the word of God, finding time between their busy jobs to sing together. In an amazing twist of fate, they were asked to record a demo which landed in the lap of Epic Records’ Managing Director Nick Raphael, who signed them on the spot, ultimately giving The Priests a worldwide audience to spread their message and music.
