HOMETIME – Tony Kavanagh, Dublin, Ireland – is a versatile pop artist. From the songwriting and the vocals to the design, the promotion and the funding, the entire project is entirely self-managed. Tony remains busy on the songwriting front – both for himself and others. While his songs are rooted in his experience as a gay man, their universal emotional heart translates well for other artists.
HOMETIME is back with the single, GRATITUDE. It reached No.4 on the Irish iTunes pop singles chart, and gained airplay in Ireland, the UK, the US, Canada, Switzerland and Israel. It reached No.1 on Canada's LGBT chart, the Q32! New York dance maestro/label executive, Vinny Vero, and British pop icon, Alison Moyet, both lavished praise on the track.
Summer single, THE SOUND OF HEARTBREAK, dropped at the end of July. With a love for ABBA, Robyn and Max Martin in its DNA, it reached No.7 on the Irish iTunes chart, and picked up radio play in Ireland, the UK, Canada, and in Switzerland – where it reached No.1 on the LRdR listeners' Top 50. The single spent a month at No.3 in the Canadian Q32 Chart, and broke the Top Ten in the UK's LGBTQ Music Chart.
Both singles trail the forthcoming album, PAST IMPERFECT. From the songwriting and the vocals to the design and the funding, the album project is entirely self-managed. Production duties are handled by Seán Hurley, in his Little Bear studio. The pandemic has created delays that will now see the album arrive very early next year.
