When you experience Sephira, you are instantly reminded that these girls are not delicate dainty creatures, they are two very talented and powerful women with fire in their souls! – Larry Hagman (JR Ewing from the hit TV series Dallas)
The international music sensation, Sephira, features dueling violins and captivating vocals covering the greatest hits and anthems of our time. Sisters Ruth and Joyce O’Leary deliver their distinct brand of powerful melodies leaving the audience with an exhilarating sense of empowerment and strength.
The spark of greatness started very early on for both Sisters. Joyce began playing violin at the age of two and a half, and Ruth at six. Years later, after studying at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Sephira broke away from their traditional classical influences and became known for their self-described “dueling violins and ethereal vocals.”
Their psychic “sisterly connection” is very apparent on stage with their delivery and mirror-like choreography. Sephira are undeniably one of the World’s most exciting musical talents having appeared with Andrea Bocelli, Kanye West, Michael Buble and Enya. This was all followed by a two-year engagement as the dancing violinists for the show,“ Celtic Thunder.”
Sephira have appeared extensively on PBS television in the US and have entertained luminaries across the globe, including: Prince Albert of Monaco, Muhammad Ali, Priscilla Presley and none other than their biggest fan, the late Larry Hagman. After a period of being musical ambassadors for their country Sephira were invited to give a dazzling performance at the pre-premiere of the Bond movie, Skyfall in NYC. They regularly perform at US government functions, some of which include: Women of Congress and the National Coast Guard Foundation.
The personal strength and dynamic presence of Sephira are clear indicators of musicians who have fully arrived and are here to stay!
