UK CULT HORROR ACTRESS’ BAND APPEAR ON THE X FACTOR

September 2014, LONDON, UK: Following successful auditions, The Courtesans made it through to be amongst the last 40 contestants in Bootcamp!

The Courtesans, comprising of UK leading horror, scream queen actress, writer and director, chanteuse Eileen Daly and creative musical talent Ben Thirkettle produce an originally styled, eclectic mix of glam baroque pop and are praised by critics for their diverse musical productions and videos; including what some might call controversial numbers like “Webcam girl”.

As the first alternative duo to make it so far through The X Factor competition, Ben and Eileen performed their classic ballad ‘Peckham Rolex’ during their audition, to the delight of Judges Simon, Cheryl, Louis and surrounding camera crew. Their bewitching performance got them the yes votes they needed to make it through to the next level and onto the main stage at Wembley. From there they progressed into the final forty contestants that made it to Bootcamp. Simon Cowell was clearly impressed with the duo and described Eileen as the “next Annie Lennox”, whilst Louis proclaimed her as “a natural born Diva!”

Their sensational performances can be seen on ITV’s ‘The X Factor’ and ITV2’s ‘Xtra Factor’ during this September.

Vocalist Eileen says, “It’s been a magical journey, we really enjoyed our time on the show and were delighted that we got so far! …But we are glad to be back in the studio again working on our new material and film projects.”

The Courtesans have produced music for many TV shows and feature films, including some of Eileen’s own productions. Some of these can be seen at http://www.gipsyphiliaproductions.co.uk

Introducing the Courtesans New Single and Video

Introducing The Courtesans and their great new single – Garden Of Love! and the Video

great about the X Factor is this new duo band I’ve seen called The CourtesansWhat’s

Are you guys ready for the one, the original, the only, oh the absolute amazing, if you haven’t figured out who they are, then you are truly missing out, let me introduce to you The Courtesans!

Who are The Courtesans I hear you all asking, The Courtesans are a magnificent duo featuring the well-known Eileen Daly and the beautiful musical talent of Ben Thirkettle. If you guys haven’t heard their music yet then you need to hurry along to YouTube or their website and listen to them right now! They are truly up and coming stars that are going to take the music business by storm! if they don’t I will eat my hat! if I had one, I love seeing something really cool and finding out more about thing and this just caught my eye, so i am going to spend the word in my own little way as these two should not be missed

Miss Eileen Daly is a true star and a celebrity in her own right and she has been in the spotlight for many years. She bought you all those kooky horror films about blood sucking vampires which she not only writes but also directs and she’s also made a TV appearance on shows such as ‘Nightlife’ and ‘Euro Trash’ after her filming ‘Razor Blade Smile’. She’s been in the music industry since 1998 when she first formed the Courtesans, but re-invented the band in later 2005 to give the work classical glam rock type of sound. Their style, technique and substance has a lot to do with Eileen’s writing and Ben’s musical genius, it all adds the flavour in which sets the tone.

They’ve been hitting the headlines recently and are all over social media, especially after auditioning for X-Factor. Did they get through? Of course they got through, I love this band! they had the cameramen all standing on their toes. if you missed it, you can view it on their website http://www.thecourtesans.net  or see it on their youtube channel, You better keep an eye out for them in Wembley. It will be something you simply can’t miss; it will be a truly magical moment! I saw them on the Xtra Factor and I just had to blog about them. I will be sitting in front of my telly tomorrow waiting to see them again. as I just think they are just different from everything out there at the moment, they have both got something, and I think its the X Factor!!!

It’s been an amazing month for The Courtesans as they have now released a new single called ‘Stickleback’ and you can hear this on Reverbnation, Facebook, or on their website. Not only this, their latest appearance on the X-Factor was met with amazement and great interest. They sang two in fact of their own tunes,  which got them to the next round. I bet you’re wondering what the judges had to say about them. as they can be a nasty bunch of twits,  but I couldn’t believe my ears when Simon Cowell was in awe and described Eileen as “the next Annie Lennox” and Louis Walsh said she was “a natural born diva!” Cheryl Cole found her absolutely ‘’captivating’’.all said and done I totally agree with them, its not really my sort of music, but when I saw them I had to know more, i winder why I hadn’t seen them in the press or heard them on the radio, so I did some detective work, and came up with all sorts of wonderful films and music..these two are not an underground band the duo are heading for the stars…and I for one love your music!

your number one fan!

Expect them!

THE COURTESANS ENTERTAINERS The Courtesans are know for continuously reinventing their music, image and for retaining a standard of autonomy within the record industry. Critics have praised their diverse musical productions, which have been known to induce controversy such as their ‘Webcam Girl’ video. – See more at: http://www.thecourtesans.net

The Courtesans band starring Eileen Daly & Ben Thirkettle

The Courtesans Duo..They are something sweet with dark under tones

The Courtesans Eileen Daly & Ben Thirkettle

I was very impressed when I was fortunate enough to hear a preview of this song when I met up with Eileen Mary Theresa Daly and Ben Thirkettle – The Courtesans – during a visit to London a week ago. My initial impressions about the song performed by this very talented duo have been reinforced after listening to it again. Hopefully, this very hardworking and creative couple will receive the plaudits they deserve. I now look forward to hearing more songs as they work towards completing their album. By Reg Dyer Magazine Blog

The Courtesans ‘Doll’

Investigate Something new, something to get your taste buds wet, and make your ears sing with excitement, The Courtesans song Doll draws on many influences such as baroque, with a twist of pop, fantasies of dark fairy tales, and a hunting melody..and a lilt of sadness in the sweet melody…you be the judge
