Colm Gavin landed on our radar in 2018 after the release of his excellent second album, 2016’s “A Voice For The Urban Darlings”. He is now getting ready to release a new solo piano E.P., “The 1992 Tapes”. The two new songs that Colm shared with us from that project are quite brilliant. A talented songwriter, it was great to be able to talk to him about his music. As always, we wrap up the episode with more new releases, and this time around we hear from A Choir Of Ghosts, Bryce Thomas, String Bone, Bùmarang, the august arrival, Martha Wainwright, Olivia Castriota and Reid Zoé.
