Gavin James Acoustic Performance at the INEC Killarney

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.

The last 2 years have been a blast for Gavin James, 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 uptempo 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.

He has been supporting act for Kodaline, Tori Kelly, Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran on their tours. In 2016 James performed at RTÉ's Centenary Concert to mark the 100 year anniversary of Ireland's Easter Rising.

In 2016 Spotify announced Gavin James to be a 'Spotify Spotlight Artist of 2016'

The future is looking very bright for Gavin James.
