Davie Furey’s new album, Haunted Streets, features some of Ireland’s top musicians including, Steve Wickham (The Waterboys), Darren Holden (The High Kings), ELLYD, Susan O’Neill (SON), Clare Sands, Robbie Campion, Martin Quinn, Andrew Quinn and Francie Conway.
Of the 11 new tracks on the album, Secret Light, Flames on the River, Fire n’Gold and The Final Frontier have all reached number one as singles on the Irish Singer/Songwriter and Rock download charts.
These singles have also been on the RTÉ Radio 1 Recommend List as well as being PLAYIRISH Song of the Week on many regional stations including KCLR FM and Ocean FM. Haunted Streets sees Davie Furey at the peak of his storytelling powers, writing from the heart and connecting with music fans around the world. The emotive power of Davie’s lyrics and his stellar cast of musicians shines through each of the tracks on Haunted Streets. From the Springsteen-esque, Trump-damning Flames on the River to the emotional sucker punch of Who Am I and the anthemic Fire n’Gold, they show Davie Furey as an artist who has a poetic gift for storytelling and a skill for melody which puts him at the very top of his game.
Songs from the album were previewed on his 15 date Irish Tour in 2019. Plans for an Ireland, UK, German and US 2020 Tour had to be shelved due COVID 19 restrictions but rescheduling of these dates is currently underway.
This new album is spectacular. This album is soft, melodic, rhythmic. It has a narrative style and is easy to listen to. The album artowrk is unsual and eye-catching – Jo.
