Paul and Sam are brothers from the Newtownards area. Both took up guitar at the age of eleven as a result of listening to their father Roy who played bass guitar in the late sixties and seventies with a number of bands.
They started by playing music from the “Shadows” a great place to learn guitar. They became very proficient and joined a local club in Newtownards where they played with older talented musicians, thereby improving very quickly.
They then went on the play in bands all over the country, forming different bands to play one-off gigs, including joining one of the most talented guitarists in Ireland today, Roy Fulton, to form a band to play at various functions. This formation is absolutely brilliant.
They also both played for various bands when asked and just last year decided to form a band of their own and SIGNATURE was born!
They were originally fronted by vocalist Nicole Smyth. Nicole recently left the band due to pressures from a new day job and the band have discovered and hired a great new male singer, Raymie Eastwood
SIGNATURE now features main vocalist Raymie Eastwood, Paul Hunter who plays bass guitar and keyboards, Sam Hunter lead and rhythm guitar.
This great band is an asset to any function, be it corporate, wedding, private party, you name it!
Great music and nice people to work with too, a super combination.
