With their latest effort, Talk On Corners, The Corrs continue towards their goal of bringing a unique brand of Celtic pop-rock to the rest of the known universe. The quartet from Dundalk, Ireland, are all brothers and sisters - Jim Corr (guitars, keyboards, vocals), Andrea (lead vocals, tin whistle), Caroline (drums, vocals) and Sharon (violin, vocals). Their blend of contemporary and traditional Irish music has so far found a big international market. Their debut, Forgiven, Not Forgotten, sold nearly two million worldwide. 'I think the reason is that we are very melodic,' said Andrea Corr. The Corrs' sound is steeped in the folk music of their homeland, but invested with a vibrant and electric modern pop sensibility. Andrea said the Irish sound seemed to strike a chord with the whole world. Talk On Corners sees the band move on from their debut, with a touch more melancholy on some of the tracks. Andrea has taken on a bigger role in The Corrs, writing or co-writing almost all of the lyrics. The dramatic first single, Only When I Sleep, was co-written with producer Oliver Lieber, the son of a legendary 1960s writer, Jerry Lieber. She also teamed up with Carole Bayer Sager, on I Never Loved You Anyway and Don't Say You Love Me. The set is a mix of sounds, she said. 'There's love, life, tragedy, hope, dreams and fantasy. It's whatever the music inspires,' she said. Other highlights include the dynamic Queen of Hollywood and Paddy McArthy, which harkens back to The Corrs' folk roots. A Jimi Hendrix classic gets some strange treatment - a collaboration with Irish folk band The Chieftains on Little Wing. Andrea has also appeared in two movies by director Alan Parker - The Commitments, a kind of Irish Blues Brothers, and last year's Evita, which starred Madonna. 'She was fantastic and I was nervous, but I just did my bit,' said Andrea. The whole band has plenty of small-screen experience, appearing on TV shows across the world.
