After touring Night on my Side Hayes took 2 years out from the music business; “All I do know is that I didn’t want to listen to music at all. I stopped listening to the radio. It was like I’d overdosed on music”.

In late 2005 Hayes returned with her second album, The Roads Don’t Love You, and picked up the Best Irish Female Artist award at the 2006 Meteor Ireland Music Awards shortly before completing a small tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland. She also co-wrote the song “Hazy” with Adam Duritz for the Counting Crows’ live album, New Amsterdam in the same year.

Following the departure from Source/Virgin after her second album she released her third effort The Hollow of Morning on her own label in May 2008. « hide
