Just remember… a dog isn’t for Christmas, but this album is!



Release Date - Friday 7th December, 2012!
Formats - CD and digital download.


Cathy Davey and Neil Hannon love dogs. They love dogs so much so that they called a group of their musical friends, (David Gray David O’Doherty, Graham Linehan and Lisa Hannigan amongst others) and asked them to record doggie themed songs and crafted the album that is “Oscar The Hypno Dog (And Other Tails)"



Cathy explains “I had been trying to figure out how to raise awareness for homeless dogs without it being a negative campaign for some time. Then I went to see David Turpin play last year and was moved by his song "Fur". It was such a playful love song that I wondered how many other songwriters would be interested in writing songs about dogs they have loved. Turns out nearly everyone I approached had a funny story to tell and so now we have a 15 track album that's as personal and playful as it gets.”

All proceeds from the album go to non-profit small Irish charity Dogs in Distress.
Everyone involved in the album has given their time, recordings and royalties free of charge so every cent raised by this album will go directly to the charity.
