Gavin Murphy's new single “Shipwreck Gold” is out on February 28th! It has been made Ocean FM's Single Of The Week and is already picking up airplay elsewhere ahead of release. It follows Gavin's début single "My Regret," which also did well on radio (including RTE Radio 1) and, just like "Shipwreck Gold," was an Ocean FM Single Of The Week. Both singles are taken from Gavin's album "45 RPM (Replay Past Memories)" which will be released in April.
