Following on from a sold-out show in February, Gavin James returns to the INEC Killarney on October 20th for an intimate acoustic over 18s, seated show.
Gavin has had an immensely successful couple of years. One of the most genuine and humble men in music, Gavin is unsurprisingly thrilled with the way things are going at the moment:
“I’m loving every minute of this. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted and I can’t wait to know what comes next.”
but it’s only the beginning for the toweringly-tall, down-to-earth Dubliner whose heavenly voice, heart-warming, spine-tingling songs and habit of jumping in to audiences to start sing-alongs has won him an army of fans around the world.
He has had platinum Top 5 sales for his debut album, Bitter Pill, in Ireland, where he was awarded Song of The Year for the album’s title track at the Choice Music Prize.
Bitter Pill’s global release followed. Several of its songs will be familiar to fans of Live At Whelan’s, the intimate live album the singer released at the start of last year as a calling card, but didn’t expect to connect beyond his homeland. On Bitter Pill, those songs have been given the grand setting and loving attention they deserve. Gavin’s raw delivery remains, as does his powerful falsetto, but now there are strings, choir-like backing vocals and electric instruments that add drama to the up-tempo tracks.
In the spring of 2015, he appeared on U.S. television’s Dancing with the Stars and released a four-track EP titled For You. Later that year, he was invited to open for chart-toppers Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith on their respective tours, and released singles including “Bitter Pill” from his full-length studio debut of the same name.
The musician had a stellar 2016 in that he was a ‘Spotify Spotlight Artist of 2016’, appeared on BBC’s the One Show and was included in various ones to watch lists, including the Sun and Buzzfeed.
The future is looking very bright for Gavin James. Expect a spine -tingling performance for this fully seated Acoustic performance from the Dubliner.
