A chat with Gavin James

Feb 09, 2016, 02:00 PM

This week I spoke to Irish singer songwriter Gavin James - a rising star not just in Ireland but globally. Just in 2015 alone, he's supported Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Kodaline on tour, has performed on US TV on both Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Late Late Show with James Corden, played in front of 80,000 people at Croke Park, been nominated for a Choice Music Prize for 2016, released his debut studio album Bitter Pill in Ireland and is on BuzzFeed and Spotify's Ones to Watch for 2016.

We chat as he is on his way to perform at the Komedia in Brighton. We chat about his last visit to Brighton when he ended up drinking an odd tequila combination, we talk about his debut studio album and his US tour with Kodaline.
