‘Avenue Road’ is the brand new single release from Monaghan singer songwriter Jim McHugh. This song is about the roving’s of a young man around the border town of Dundalk and adjacent coastal village of Blackrock Co. Louth.
Avenue Road is the road that leads from Dundalk out to Blackrock and is where the love interest in the song lived. Unfortunately, she left for America and lost interest in him. ‘Avenue Road’ evokes his feelings; young love’s heartache echoing in the melancholic arrangements and lyrics.
This is the first single to be taken from Jim’s forthcoming album due for release in early 2019. It was recorded, produced and mastered in Ben Reel’s studio in Armagh and features Jim on Vocals/Mandolin/Electric Guitar, Paul McCabe on Bass, Butch McNeil on Drums and Ben Reel on synthesiser.
‘Avenue Road’ will be available on all digital formats for streaming/download on 28th September.
