I was up late one night back in early 2003, ironically doing the exact same thing I am doing now when Irish singer Gemma Hayes came on Channel V with her debut single, “I Let A Good Thing Go”. Being pre-iTunes, trying to find a copy of this single was extremely tough. Eventually I tracked down her full album in a hung-over daze one morning about 3 months later, and it still to this day is one of my most favourite albums of all time. Randomly, that song came on in my iTunes the other day, and I hadn’t listen to it for ages, as it bought back some awful memories the album has attached itself to of the last half of a decade of my life (as music does). I decided to see if she bought anything else since, and came across two more albums, including her newest release, “The Hollow Of Morning”, and I can tell you, she hasn’t lost her awesomeness. The album is amazing, if not more amazing than, “Night On My Side” her first release. It’s hard I think for people to recommend music these days, as most peeps enjoy such a variety of music, but I decided I am going to share mine anyways.
