Furey’s manager, Suzanne Doyle, said: “Finbar is very pleased that Absolute came on board for his new album, Moments In Time. Having worked with major labels over the last 50 years, he’s now very comfortable with a label services company like Absolute. He admires Absolute’s commitment to staying independent in a corporate environment, and is impressed they have both the time and interest to deliver his album to a wider, global audience.”
Finbar Furey said: “I remember playing golf with Henry Semmence in Ireland many moons ago… Still waiting for the return match though!”
