This catchy no-nonsense Americana / Pop song was recorded at Vickers Vimy’s own studio by the very talented Ciaran Byrne, mixed by Grammy nominated Chris O’Brien and Graham Murphy at The Production Suite Dublin and mastered by the legendary Richard Dowling at Wav Mastering.
It’s a fun rhythmic song with an underlying message of hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. No matter what we go through, whether it’s a mental health issue or the ability to cope with the challenges now happening to all of us, this is a relevant and appropriate song which both artists have decided to release together.
When people really need a positive message, songs can help as this one surely does.
The track melds the talents and sounds of Vickers Vimy and David Dee Moore, both have a handle on creating wonderful counter melodies, weaving in and out and yet managing to keep a constant foot stompin’ rhythm and addictive choruses.

Hailing from Mayo, on the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland, Vickers Vimy craft songs that dwell on the borders of folk and Americana.
