"After the success of her two EP's '4:35AM' and 'Work To A Calm', Irish singer/songwriter Gemma Hayes releases her debut album. 'Night On My Side' moves away the folk tinged indie of previous work and has had a rockier edge added with the help of producer Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, Mogwai, Flaming Lips)."

"The sublime 'The Roads Don't Love You' is released through Virgin Records on October 31st. The album was recorded in Los Angeles over the summer and is a fitting follow-up to acclaimed debut 'Night On My Side.'"

"The Roads Don’t Love You is the follow-up to her Mercury-nominated debut Night On My Side. On its release in 2002 Night On My Side met with phenomenal critical acclaim. After writing a whole new batch of songs, Gemma moved to Los Angeles last year to recruit a producer and musicians to record and play with.

She met renowned drummer Joey Waronker (credits include R.E.M., Beck, Paul McCartney, Air, Smashing Pumpkins, Johnny Cash and many more) who offered his production skills. After assembling a band of musicians she admired greatly through their individual work with PJ Harvey, Beck and Remy Zero, work on The Roads Don’t Love You commenced - with stunning results."
