I got involved with my Dad Martin Gamble’s band years ago. He was in a two piece and the other guy couldn’t perform with him one night, so they were looking for another singer. I was training to be a pilot with Aer Rianta in Dublin at the time and I gave it up to go on the road with my Dad for a couple of years. I was also in a Westlife tribute act for a while in England, I was the Mark Feehily of the group. I came back to Ireland and saw Jimmy Buckley performing and my Dad said that could be me. From there, I put my own band together the following year. That was 2005.
