Joey Gavin is a songwriter from Dublin, Ireland, currently
based in Berlin.
This Autumn, Joey and his band will tour Ireland in support
of his next single, Home Sweet Home, with support act
and backing band, old time act Puddle.
Can we be proud of a nation and ashamed of it too? What
is a nation? Home Sweet Home challenges the notion of
A street is not a home for the homeless, heart's not harbor
of blood for oxygen. We orbit home like electrons to a
nucleus. Home is a faulty idea, a construct used to sell

This single is from the upcoming debut album, collected
from work spanning 4 years of wandering in the west of
Ireland, Greece, and Berlin, which touches on a spectrum
of 20th Century folk rock and Americana from 70's Floydian

In 2018, after playing a series of Irish festivals,
followed by a permanent move to Berlin to "shuffle
the deck", he played with Elizabeth Moen on a North
American tour as a guitarist and support act, including
performances in L.A, New York and Portland. His previous
single, the angsty Rolf Harris Is A Paedophile garnered
him strong recognition in his hometown, which coincided
with the end of his journey with noise pop heroes, Thumper,
the music project of old friend Oisin Furlong, who features
heavily on the new record.
