CAPITOL RECORDS SIGNS GAVIN JAMES

 

James’ Live At Whelans Climbed To #1 On iTunes In Ireland

And Is Available Now In U.S.

 

Dublin-Based Artist Will Support Seinabo Sey On U.S. Tour, Including Shows At Le Poisson Rouge – Popshop In NYC On January 27 And Hollywood Forever In Los Angeles On February 4

 

 
Capitol Records has signed Gavin James and is introducing the Irish artist Stateside with Live At Whelans, which is now available everywhere, including iTunes and Spotify. The album features James performing in the stripped-back environment of a rapturously received hometown show. “Nervous,” his pin-drop account of a one-sided relationship, can be streamed HERE. James’ soulful cover of The Magnetic Fields’ “The Book of Love,” which can be heard HERE, recently hit #1 on Shazam in Holland. Live At Whelans – released in international markets via Good Soldier – climbed to #1 on iTunes in Ireland shortly after the pre-order launched.

 

The 22-year-old artist will join Seinabo Sey on her U.S. tour, which kicks off with a Popshop show at Le Poisson Rouge on January 27 and includes an evening at Hollywood Forever’s Masonic Lodge in Los Angeles on February 4. (See below for itinerary.) James will return to Dublin thereafter, where he will play a sold-out show at The Olympia Theatre on March 20. He is the first artist ever to sell out the historic venue before releasing a studio album.

 

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 Ireland’s answer to the Mercury (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.”
