Meet Irish singer-songwriter Gavin James. This young man sings like an angel. I know that phrase is over-used, but I honestly don’t know how else to explain it. His voice has such a tender tone to it that even when he’s exhibiting a bit of power or exploring the outer reaches of his range, the sweetness still comes through. I hope he’s as nice as his voice.
Twice, he’s won the Choice Music Prize Irish Song of the Year award, and for good reason. His songs are as heavenly as his voice, and the combination of the two is irresistible. Keep an eye on this guy. He’s going places.
This is maybe the best, most satisfying, least predictable performance music video I’ve ever seen.
His version of “The Book of Love” is so wonderful, it’s nearly replaced Peter Gabriel‘s version in my heart. Nearly.
