Rea Garvey – Just A Minute

In 1998, Rea Garvey moved from his home country Ireland to Germany. He had a demo CD in his pocket, but no band to record the songs with, or play live shows. Via an ad in a local paper, he found his band mates and formed Reamonn. This is an Irish form of the name Raymond, Rea’s real first name. Their 2000 debut single Supergirl was an immediate Top 5 hit, both in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. It went Top 10 in Switzerland. In 2010, after five successful studio albums, the band called it quits and Garvey went solo.

Since then, he released five studio albums as a solo artist well. His fifth, Hy Brasil, has just come out. As we have come to expect, it’s a collection of well-crafted pop songs. The record opens very strong, with the singles Talk To Your Body and Hey Hey Hey. These two are followed by a track that sounds like a future single. Just A Minute is a radio-friendly song with a pleasant tempo and simple, but uplifting violin parts.
