New York, NY, December 02, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Known to US audiences through previous albums, their headliner shows in major cities and from appearances with Andrea Bocelli, Michael Bublé, Kanye West, Enya, Celtic Thunder and on PBS, Sephira is the creation of sisters Joyce and Ruth O'Leary who have broken away from their classical influences and became known for their self-described "fiery fusion of dueling violins and ethereal vocals."
Their string-driven sound and captivating sibling harmonies have taken Sephira around the world, from their native Ireland, to the UK, to Monaco to play for Prince Albert, all across the US and to New York, where their management is now based.
Sephira’s Starlight breathes new life into such timeless Christmas classics as “Oh Holy Night”, "Carol of the Bells" and "Sleigh Ride along with a soulful rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and Sephira’s stunning original track "Beneath a Thousand Stars."
"Christmas time holds a very special place in our hearts as we have so many wonderful memories of spending family time cuddled up by the fire, watching Christmas movies," said younger sister Joyce.
"We strived to create an album that would spark people's memories and take them back to the magic of Christmas morning as a child. Starlight is the holiday album we've always dreamed of recording and we are extremely proud of it," said Ruth.
The Starlight CD artwork gives a glimpse into another aspect of Sephira's appeal---their striking fashion-forward style that adds sparkle to their live shows as the sisters are "Sephirized" in custom couture gowns by NYC based Irish designer Jacqueline Quinn and the flamboyant footware of Boston's Zack Lo.
A fresh new soundtrack to the most festive of seasons, Starlight is now available at http://sephirastarlight.weebly.com and for digital download at iTunes and Amazon.
