One of Ireland’s most beloved and respected musicians and songwriters, Davie Furey,is to embark on his first headline tour of Ireland in 5 years. After a busy 2023, which included touring with the legendary Paul Brady, which included a date in the National Opera House in Wexford, Davie is set to release a brand-new album of 9 original compositions titled Glimpses of the Truth, which will be released March 22nd. He is set to return to Wexford in 2024, playing The Wexford Arts Centre on Friday, 5th of April.The line-up, along with Davie, includes two of Irelands’ best musicians – Stuart Gray and Steve Milne.

Building upon the huge success of his previous albums, Easy Come, Easy Go and Haunted Streets which drew plaudits from celebrity fans such as Jeremy Irons and musicians such as Donovan and Christy Moore, Glimpses of the Truth sees Davie Furey at the peak of his storytelling powers, writing from the heart and connecting with music fans around the world.

Of the 9 new tracks on the album, Stargazer, Downtown Parade and History have all reached number one as singles on the Irish Singer-Songwriter and Rock download charts.These singles have also been listed as being PlayIrish song of the week on many radio stations.Davie has also been recognised in recent times by The Hot Press Awards, nominated as best Irish Folk Artist and The Pure M Awards, nominated three years in a row for Best Newcomer, Best Male Artist and Best Irish Solo Act.

The emotive power of Davie’s lyrics and his stellar cast of musicians’ shines through each of the tracks on Haunted Streets. From the powerful and uplifting History to the emotional sucker punch of Heaven Can Wait and the anthemic Stargazer, 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.

“I LOVE this album from Davie” – Jeremy Irons

“Congratulations Davie on a lovely album .......a fine, fine record" - Christy Moore

"An excellent piece of work from Davie" - Donovan
