Inspired by local heroes like Damien Rice and classic soul artists such as Sam Cooke, Gavin played marathon three-hour shows at Dublin's pubs during college, often performing seven nights a week. His original material soon began to draw an impassioned following. James' very first single won Ireland's answer to the Mercury – the Choice Prize for Song Of The Year. Say Hello, James' Irish debut EP, charted for more than six months, leading to a string of sold-out headline dates and supporting tours with such artists as Lianne La Havas, Beth Orton and Marina & The Diamonds.
Bhi Bhiman is an American singer/songwriter. His musical style has drawn a diverse range of comparisons from Rodriguez and Woody Guthrie to Nina Simone and Bill Withers. An accomplished guitarist and clever lyricist, it is Bhiman's unique voice that truly sets him apart. The Washington Post's Bill Friskics-Warren has said, "what strikes you first about Bhi Bhiman's music is his voice — a keening, gender-neutral yawp that's as earthy as it is ethereal, as puckish as it is wise."
