|Gavin James is currently touring alongside Kodaline, and slowly conquering the U.S. with every stop. His breathtaking falsetto lulls the room into silence nightly, inspiring plenty of swooning and hand holding.
Last night, he stopped to perform a stirring rendition of “The Book Of Love” on The Late, Late Show with James Corden. Watch HERE.
This debut single (a cover of the Magnetic Fields’ original) is featured on his Live At Whelans album, out now. That collection was captured in James’ hometown Dublin, and climbed to No. 1 on iTunes in Ireland upon pre-order launch.
On May 19, James’ For You EP will be released, and features the first-ever studio recordings to preview his forthcoming full-length. The album version of “The Book Of Love,” “For You,” “I Don’t Know Why” and “Ghost” are included.
Upon completing this stateside run with Dublin mates Kodaline, James will join budding pop songstress Tori Kelly on her cross-country U.S. tour.
James has already won Ireland’s answer to the Mercury (the Choice Music Prize for Song of the Year) Awards that led to a string of sold-out headline dates and supporting tours with such artists as Lianne La Havas, Beth Orton and Marina & The Diamonds. The 22-year-old artist recently joined Seinabo Seyon her U.S. tour, and has since returned to Dublin, where he played a sold-out show at The Olympia Theatre. He is the first artist ever to sell out the historic venue before releasing a studio album.
