Following the release of her acclaimed new album Bones + Longing, Irish singer-songwriter Gemma Hayes has confirmed a UK & Ireland tour. Gemma’s new single Palomino will be released on 20th April, with a special limited edition 7 inch released for Record Store Day on 18th April. Gemma also contributes vocals to the upcoming single from Above & Beyond, Counting Down The Days.
So far in 2015 Gemma has been busy in Europe, where Bones + Longing has just been released, including TV and radio sessions in Paris and Berlin. This video clip of her and Joe Chester performing a version of Chris Izaak’s Wicked Game, previously a radio hit for Gemma in France, was filmed in the Chapel at the Centre Culture Irlandais especially the French fashion website MadMoizelle.com
