Following the success of Davy's first solo album 'Atlantic Bridge',
Davy put together a touring band which included some of Ireland's
finest session musicians. Davy along with Anthony Drennan on Guitar,
James Delaney on keyboards, Tony Molloy on bass, Paul Moran on drums
and percussion started an intensive touring schedule to support the
release of the Atlantic Bridge album.
During their first UK tour they came to the attention
of the BBC's Andy Kershaw, who brought Davy and Band into the BBC
studios to record some tracks for his show on Radio 1. Although
there was no live audience for this session the recordings were
made in a 'live' context which gave a completely new life and energy
to Davy's works.
As the months passed the creative side of the band
developed towards a more 'rock' direction and with the successful
blend of styles and musicians that featured on the 'Atlantic Bridge'
it was suggested by producer PJ Curtis that Rory Gallagher should
guest on some recordings with Davy's band. Suggestion became a reality
and from the recording session that followed Davy's music continued
to break new ground.
Out Of The Air is the combination of the above sessions
with the added bonus of a re-recorded version of the track 'Mystic
Seacliffs' which was originally recorded by Bill Whelan,
with Davy, as the theme music for the 1988 Eurovision song contest
