Gavin Friday signs to Rubyworks

Rubyworks are delighted to announce the signing of singer, composer and artiste Gavin Friday to the label.

Gavin has been working on songs for a studio album since 2008; co-writing with Cork based keyboard player Herbie Macken. The pair first collaborated for the Patrick McCabe play ‘The Revenant’ for the Druid Theatre Company in 2007.

Recording for the album started last summer in Dublin, with producer Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, Moby, M83) at the controls. The record was mixed and completed in the UK in earlier this year; and is currently being scheduled for a late summer release. It will be Gavin’s first solo album since 1995’s ‘Shag Tobacco’.

His recent work includes film scores for ‘In America’ and ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. ‘Nothing Like The Sun’ with Gavin Bryars for the Royal Shakespeare Company, and ‘Drifting And Tilting’ with Scott Walker at The Barbican. Plus ongoing live and studio collaborations with long time compadre Hal Willner; and the very special “An Evening With Gavin Friday & Friends”, a unique event with a stellar line up at Carnegie Hall in 2009.
