It’s no surprise that Hennessy recorded the song "Take My Hand" on his iPhone and uploaded it to social media, getting over a million views, back in 2015.

Following the success of the video, the group were forced to move their debut gig from the Grand Social in Dublin to the larger-capacity Academy.
