THREE OF Ireland's greatest songwriters, Phil Coulter, Luka Bloom and Jimmy McCarthy, have lavished praise on folk-rock musician Davie Furey and his debut album Easy Come Easy Go.
“Davie sings from the heart and has the voice of a poet," said Bloom; McCarthy said he has "a very unique voice and will gather a large following very quickly"; while Coulter said Easy Come Easy Go was "an excellently produced album with very dramatic songs".
Galway audiences can hear why, when Furey plays Monroe's Live on Friday April 1 at 9.30pm, as part of his tour to promote the album, songs from which have already been played on RTÉ and BBC. Fusing trad, contemporary folk, and rock, Furey’s sound is characterized by storytelling, energy, and the spirit of Christy Moore, Luke Kelly, Pearl Jam, and Bruce Springsteen.
