From a drunken house party to being on stage with INXS, Ciaran Gribbin has had a pretty interesting career to date.

Derry man Ciaran Gribbin has made the transition from being a hopeful musician to standing on stage with one of the biggest rock bands in the world, and all from playing a quick tune on the couch at a house party.

Gribbin's music pedigree isn't in question of course, as he wrote a few songs with Paul Okenfold for Madonna (and all he has to show for it is a Grammy nomination), has written soundtracks for movies, and used to perform under the name Joe Echo, in case you're wondering where you know the name from.
