Music Gateway are excited to present Irelands brightest new star Gavin James.  Tipped as one to watch, 2013 looks like an extremely promising year for this flame haired talent.

Gavin James catchy debut single “Say Hello” rocketed to the top of  the Irish i-tunes album chart. Following this he peaked the UK top 5 album chart even before its release date. Proving Gavin  to be more than just a one-hit wonder.

This ultimately led to Gavin starting  the year by selling out his first headline show at prestigious venues – The Grand Social, Dublin and Ryan Sheridan at The Olympia. In addition Gavin has  supported Ingrid Michaelson at her sell out Whelans show in June, and the Nouvelle Vague on their Irish tour.  Gavin also  won Choice Meteor Awards  ‘Song Of The Year Award’.

His popularity and reputation as a charismatic performer earned him an invitation to the internationally influential  Worldwide Radio summit in LA leading to a record deal with ultra- hip Believe Recordings. This rapid rise in the music world is only the beginning of great things to come.
