Dubliner Gavin James makes his American radio debut with this session. I was instantly taken by his solid and natural vocals and was not surprised to learn he has been busking since a teenager in Dublin. It's no surprise that his first domestic release is a solo live recording from the legendary Whelan's in Dublin. It seems there is no music fan he can't win over if you just give him a chance. His songwriting chops are developing but interestingly his profile is rising thanks to a cover that might surprise you.
