BRESSIE last night thanked Niall Horan for giving young Irish people hope to follow their dreams.
The Blizzards frontman was speaking at the launch of his new Camden Recording Studios and paid tribute to Niall – who is from his hometown.
He said growing up, “teachers would tell you that a career in music was a waste of time, to go into football or business.”
This changed, he said however when “a young lad named Niall Horan” went on to become a member of one of the biggest boy bands on the planet.
Bressie said because of him, “every kid whose parents told them to give up on their dreams can say b#####ks to that.”
The One Direction star couldn’t make the opening, but sent a message of support on the night.
He tweeted “Gutted I’m not in Dublin for the launch of @camdenrecording tonight. Goodluck to @nbrez and the lads ! (sic)”
Bressie, real name Niall Breslin, officially opened the studio on Thursday night, with a performance from new Irish band Chasing Abbey.
Pals Eoghan McDermott, Bronagh Gallagher and Laura Whitmore all showed up to support his new venture.
Alongside Cian Boylan and Conor Brady, Bressie will work with singers and bands to record tracks here in Dublin.
Bressie, 36, said he hopes this means the talent we have in Ireland “won’t have to leave the country to get their music out.”
Already Ed Sheeran has stopped into the city centre studio as well as Kodaline and The Strypes, while the Blizzards are planning to record their new album there.
