LA based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gavin Haley releases his highly anticipated EP ‘Unfolding’. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Gavin’s relatable craft is rawly conveyed and effortlessly cool, creating a smooth listening sonic experience that really gets you reflecting. Alongside the release of the EP, its focus track ‘Self Control’ featuring UK R&B artist Izzy Bizu, has an accompanying video delivering a heartwarming storyline of that exciting love at first sight feeling… but with a playful twist! Watch the video here.
Discussing the EP, Gavin explains: “The Unfolding EP is me being more vulnerable with everyone. The idea for this project was to shine a light on the things I had yet to share with the world in my writing. In my past songs, a lot of times I'm singing of relationship turmoil, but I've never really gone into what could have caused a lot of those issues. Unfolding is a series of growing pains through music,” says Haley. “Sonically, I feel this is the most authentic music I've made. I grew up in church, but I also raced bikes and listened to rap music when I could hide it from my family. I feel like I brought elements to this music from every area I've drawn inspiration from, but still staying me. Each song is its own story, and I hope this project connects with the people who find it and brings us closer. I wrote Unfolding almost entirely in a few days.”
Additionally, speaking of the single Bizu adds, "When I first heard 'Self Control,' I really loved the cute acoustic nostalgic feel! Reminded me of the times when you’re head over heels for someone at the first glance and all the impulsive things you do because of that! Was so fun to be a part of this track, hope you enjoy x"
2020 has been a significant year for this rising star, releasing an abundance of new material, including a remix from legendary drummer Travis Barker for his hit ‘Tati’ featuring Yung Pinch. Gavin has established an ear-catching alt-pop sound laced with hip-hop tendencies and open, confessional lyrics. He has impressively accumulated over 60 million total streams in just two years, with ‘Jet Lag’ cracking 10 million and ‘The Way I Am’ featuring Ella Vos exceeding 17 million. Gavin is always on his A-game, and with no signs of slowing down, this bright talent is storming his way to stardom.
