Irish People shout at me in the street as if Iâ€™m part of their family â€“ its really warmingâ€.
Shayneâ€™s Irish influences permeate his music too, and its no surprise that he is related to Irish folk group The Fureysâ€“ â€œI love listening to proper Irish music â€“ even though some people might find it funny!â€ he laughs, â€œIt really helps me chill out and reminds me of when I was younger. Iâ€™m also a huge fan of artists like Van Morrison, The Dubliners and U2″.
