2015 is off to a great start for Dublin singer \ songwriter Gavin James.  Along with having just signed a major American record deal with Capital Records USA, his biggest headline show to date at the Olympia on 20th March is now Sold Out! His “Live At Whelans” album which reach No.1 on iTunes in Ireland on release in December is now available worldwide. The album features James performing in the stripped-back environment of a rapturously received hometown show. Gavin will play Eurosonic on 16th in the Netherlands where just this week, his soulful cover of The Magnetic Fields’ “The Book of Love,” is getting massive radio airplay and has hit #1 on Shazam in Holland.

James started playing guitar at the age of eight and comes from a family with a rich musical heritage – both of his maternal great grandparents were famous Irish Opera singers. He has already won the Choice Music Prize for Song of the Year. Say Hello, James’ Irish debut EP, charted for more than six months, leading to a string of sold-out headline dates and supporting tours with such artists as Lianne La Havas, Beth Orton, Kodaline and Marina & The Diamonds. Clash has praised him as “tender, emotional…no mean talent” and Hotpress noted, “The fresh-faced soul machine possesses the power to hush a room.”
