Take a stroll around Dublin’s Temple Bar and you’ll hear plenty of music. However you suspect that not many of those performing the string of familiar cover versions will go onto make a name for themselves in the real, non-tourist world. 21 year old Gavin James is the exception. Having cut his teeth on those hellish streets, he began to write his own songs and find his own, incredible voice. Now signed to the same label as James Vincent McMorrow, we suggest that he won’t be playing ‘The Irish Rover’ again for a long time.
