The Feis App - a home for the Irish dance community
In 2017, three Irish Dance musicians had a dream. They wished to create an amazing music app for the Irish Dance community, to provide inspiration, connection, and quality music for dancers, teachers and studios. The Feis App was born!
Anthony Davis, Liam O'Sullivan and Sean O'Brien, are fully engaged in Irish dance and music culture. As friends and colleagues, they've traveled extensively together, playing at feiseanna and majors across the globe. Bonded in brotherhood, and through their relationships, they live in service to the Irish Dance community.
It all began with an idea...
When the idea for the Feis App was hatched, it was done so with an aim to employ and incentivize Irish Dance musicians, giving them creative freedom, thus creating growth in the industry. Existing platforms such as iTunes and Spotify were already providing a channel for the music. However, artists had little control over content, publishing, distribution or pricing. Musicians were not compensated effectively, and were less able to prioritize the effort and resources required to produce new music for dancers. The Feis App was designed to change the industry and empower musicians to create amazing content.
Energized by the possibilities, Anton, Liam and Sean also worked on a larger vision – creating a hub for “all things Irish Dance”. The Feis App is expanding all the time to include live broadcasts, results, shopping opportunities and vendor-partners, discounts, contests, fitness and lifestyle blogs and podcasts. It’s not just music!
In late 2017, the creation of the FEIS App began in earnest. Months were spent on intensive design work. The partners did a lot of market research, listening to requests from teachers, parents, dancers and tech specialists. The Feis App lads all have wives or partners that are world-level dancing teachers, who were consulted day and night along the way.
Fast forward to April 2019: The launch of the FEIS app. Positive feedback about the quality of the music and user-friendly nature of the platform poured in and it became quickly apparent that the FEIS app was the number one choice for Irish dancers and teachers everywhere. And as more and more members of the community switch to the FEIS App platform as their primary source of Irish dance music and culture, it's clear that the same is true today.
The Feis App features the full catalogue of Anton & Sully and Sean O’Brien, and has also signed other top musicians. The Feis App is proving to be the best collection of Irish Dance Music in the world. We are currently offering the addition of 6 brand new tracks every month, and making continual improvements in the back end of the app function. The easy-to-use interface and the growing content offer value and practicality for teachers and dancers.
For parents – your dancer will be motivated to practice, to stay abreast of current events, and to increase their skill and ability, with the support of the app. It is an investment in their dance career.
The FEIS App story doesn't stop here. In fact, this is where it begins. This platform was created for YOU. So please join us, get involved, make suggestions, offer ideas, and help us evolve to serve you even better.
We love this art form and we know you do too. Let's continue to develop and grow together and celebrate all that is good about Irish Dancing.
Sean, Anton & Sully
