With music industry despatches dominated of late by tales of woe, more and more acts are finding that a little bit of imagination goes a long way when it comes to grabbing attention.

It also helps that the act has a decent record to flog too – which is where Cathy Davey may be on to a winner with her second album Tales from Silversleeve.

The follow-up to Davey’s 2004′s debut Something Ilk was produced by Sneaker Pimp Liam Howe and will be released on October 12th.

Davey’s big idea is a nationwide residency tour which will see her ping-ponging between five different venues in October.

You’ll catch the singer playing at Belfast’s Auntie Annie’s (on October 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th), Dublin’s Whelan’s (8th, 15th, 23rd, 29th), Galway’s Roisin Dubh (9th, 16th, 30th), Limerick’s Dolan’s Warehouse (10th, 17th, 24th) and Cork’s Cyprus Avenue (11th, 18th, 25th, 31st).
