Since the release of his debut album Bitter Pill, Gavin James has sold over 2 million singles worldwide, amassed ½ billion streams on Spotify and performed over 500 shows to over 3.2 million people at festivals and sold out tours across US, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.

The Bitter Pill, Say Hello, Nervous, and For You creator has amassed an army of fans around the globe with his ‘once in a generation’ voice and emotionally-charged live performances.

He has also found fans in many of his fellow musical peers, supporting Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Kodaline and Sam Smith and collaborating with Alan Walker (on the summer smash Tired) and Australian Hip Hop act Bliss n Eso (on the Aria Award nominated Moments).

James had a massive 2017, culminating in the release of his new single Hearts On Fire, the first track to be lifted off his second album, due in the spring.

Produced with Steve Robson (One Direction, John Legend, James Bay) and co-written with Sam Romans (Little Mix, Mary J Blige, Rag n Bone Man) the song, complete with its infectious chants and hooky chorus, is already a fan favourite.

James sold out the Festival Big Top in 2017 and his 2018 show promises to be just as popular.
