Flesh & Blood
Since working with luminary greats such as Celtic Woman on her Grammy nominated album Destiny and touring relentlessly with The Kilkennys, Davey Long prepares to launch his new album. Already gaining huge attention for his solo productions, including being used in charity adverts, the latest track comes out today. What a build-up, not many musicians can claim to have built on such solid foundations. Featuring Dave Gough on bass guitar, Rob Larkin on keyboards, Shane O’Dwyer and Eoin Drennan on guitars, with James Delahunty on synth, the sound is fit to burst with talent and skill.
The music begins with a vocal and piano draped over angular drums. Bass arrives with the snare on wings of clarity as the piano melody opens further. The vocals join with exploration of scale and tone, the progression snakes forward as sleek electric blues guitar vibes with uplifting strokes. The chorus rolls by like a special scene in a longer story that continues. On we go, on a boat of emotions as Davey Long and his brilliant band demonstrate their drama in the sounds of city nights.

Last Train To Tupelo
Out: 3rd September
Celebrating the life of Elvis Presley with a track inspired by his life-story, Last Train To Memphis by Peter Guralnick, this new track by Davey Long wants to throttle the young man into making better choices. Taking his own blues infused folk-Americana sound, there's a sonic family tree reaching back into several albums including those by Eric Clapton, J.J. Cale, Muscle Shoals, and Jason Isbell. A profound and multi-talented musician, Davey Long has worked with icons such as Celtic Woman, Edison, The Fundamentals, The Kilkennys, and Emma Langford. If that's not all, a familiar face on the festival scene, Davey Long is no stranger to big crowds of hungry music fans. Let's catch that train.
With a snap of snare and a rock n roll rhythm, a chewy blues guitar fill breaks open the vocals. Locomotive tempos and lyrics to match roll off the tongue and into the clouds of steam as the engine ploughs through the air. Flashy blues guitar launches into the middle-eight with a passionate solo before the new verse continues the story. Funky interludes fizz and crackle as the bass, drums, and organ merge in sparkling inflections of soul.
