Jammerzine has an exclusive interview with singer/songwriter Davie Furey. A legend among legends in Ireland, David has today released his new album titled ‘Glimpses Of The Truth’ and announced his upcoming tour (dates below).

‘Glimpses Of The Truth’ is an album that anyone with ears can find something they love about. While each track has that collective oneness about them that shows a clearly coherent album, their is also an individuality about each track that makes it hard to find a single. That world building feeling and international flavor while showing the best learned from a lifelong career is more than evident. Each song is filled with music as well as musicians that know how to fill that void yet there is an atmosphere with enough space for your mind to wander and wonder in.

And, in this interview, we talk with Davie about ‘Glimpses Of The Truth’ as well as his history in music and where that music is going.
