Formed in 2002, The Irrepressibles are a "performance pop orchestra" created by artist and composer Jamie McDermott. Described by The Sunday Times as "an enchantingly theatrical pop
extravaganza" the band attempt to bring together the worlds of classical orchestration, art, and pop music. They have recorded one studio album, Mirror Mirror and the EP From The Circus to the
Sea, both of which have garnered critical acclaim internationally.
The Irrepressibles perform a 'spectacle' show, which brings together choreography, interactive set, lighting installation and musical performance to inspire the emotions of the "inner child" of their
audiences. As a group, they have been compared to David Bowie, Kate Bush, opera from the Baroque era, and the KLF.
