Gemma Hayes

︎ /// ︎ /// ︎ /// ︎

Over the last couple of years Gemma Hayes has been playing small venues, road testing some new material and reconnecting with her fanbase. She has also been busy with her occasional side project - the Gemma Hayes/ Lisa Hannigan / Paul Noonan Trio - wowing audiences with some very special performances around Ireland.

Gemma is currently putting the finishing touches to a new album, ‘BLIND FAITH’, inspired by moving to West Cork with her young family, and a new perspective on life. The first track 'High & Low' was released at the end of June 2023 as a teaser for the new campaign, and received an overwhelming response.

The second track, 'Hey Man (Feed The Flames)' was released in January followed by ‘Hardwired in May’.

Gemma is currently touring Ireland and the UK with her full band while also fitting in some stripped back two-piece acoustic shows in smaller venues.
