Gavin James - FUV Live - 2015

by Rita Houston

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.

Elle King's time has finally come. Nearly three years after releasing The Elle King EP, this powerhouse singer has unleashed her mighty voice on the masses with a ferocious full-length debut album, Love Stuff. It's a brash and bold introduction to an artist who really impressed us at the FUV Live at CMJ showcase at Rockwood Music Hall last fall.
