just saw the thread on lisa...just wondering if others are fans of gemma hayes? she's one of my favorite singer/songwriters...probably doesn't as much attention/acclaim as she should. i just saw this new video of hers...there's something so simple and elegant about it...kind of reminds me of that old sinead o'connor video. gemma's a super charismatic performer i think you'll see in this clip..

She was around a lot more four or five years ago. I wasn't too pushed about her recent album, but the first two were great. :)

Our own Paul Noonan played some drums for her way back when.

I LOVE Gemma also. I agree that she doesn't get half the acclaim she rightfully deserves. Oliver is an amazing song and has to be one of her best yet. The video is stunning. Simple but breath taking. I'd love to see her live. Along with Cathy Davey I think they are hands down the best female artists in Ireland right now. I would say Lisa Hannigan too but her album totally let me down. I'm sorry to say it but it just wasn't what i hoped it would be.

Anyway, Gemma is fantastic. Glad to see others agree!! :D

I haven't given Gemma a chance at all really but what I've heard I've liked a lot. And I'd have to agree about Cathy cos she's freaking awesome. Gonna see Lisa in July (thanks to Lilac) and then I can decide just how good she is

Lisa herself?
