I had the pleasure of going to Dolan’s Last night for the second time this week. However tonight was a completely different affair as we were in a tightly packed warehouse and we went from Male Singer–Songwriter to Female Singer-Songwriter with Gemma Hayes taking the stage.
We were first treated to ‘Happy Sad’ taken from Gemma's second album “The Roads Don’t Love You” (2005) and what followed was a mish-mash of her extensive back catalogue and some newbie’s from her soon to released album “The Hollow of Morning”. Already these new songs seem to be like old favourites and proving how prolific she is, she confidentently showcased a beautiful song written only last week called ‘Oliver’. The crazy antics of the electric guitar player kept me entertained as Gemma rocked the packed warehouse. Her new album will be available to buy on May 12th but last night we got an opportunity to buy it, its already a favourite and will be hard to put down with such crowd pleasers as ‘Out of our hands’ and ‘In Over My Head’. Another great night of music, Cheers!
