"The Prayer Boat boat formed during January 1987 in Blessington, County Wicklow with Emmett Tinley vocals, guitar and keyboards, his brother Patrick on guitar, Tim Houlihan on drums and Tony Byrne on bass."

"Two years of constant touring in Ireland polished the brother's songwriting skills culminating in the release of the band's first single 'Beautiful History' on their own label Stem Records in 1989."

"A spiral of events swept them into a recording contract with RCA Records, a UK tour with Fatima Mansions, a further tour with The Pogues, the release of their debut album 'Oceanic Feeling' in 1991 and festival appearances across Europe."

"The fine album was welcomed by the critics: "A fine debut" hailed Hot Press, "My money's with them, a startling debut" said Melody Maker. RCA responded to the critical acclaim by severing their alliance with the band in 1992."

"New management, new songs, six months in Scotland, a new contract with Almo Sounds and three years later The Prayer Boat emerge, wiser, older, and with their finest single to date Dark Green a testament to a band's self belief."

"The Prayer Boat begin another UK tour in March with their second album scheduled for late summer."
