Gavin James is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Dublin, Ireland. Not too long ago, he released an appealing music video for his “Greatest Hits” single via Good Soldier/AllPoints.
Gavin James – “Greatest Hits” music video
“‘Greatest Hits’ is about the memories you are left with when you break up with someone. It’s about only remembering the good parts and forgetting the bad parts (the B-sides). It’s very synthy and way different than anything that I’ve ever released. But I’m buzzing for people to hear it.” – Gavin James explained
Sonically, “Greatest Hits” is a far cry from Gavin’s previous releases. Musically, it harks back to the ‘80s and contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and melancholic lyrical content. The dance-friendly tune possesses groovy, disco-pop instrumentation flavored with chugging bass synths and racing percussion. Furthermore, “Greatest Hits” twists and turns like a twilit DeLorean and follows on the heels of Gavin James’s “Sober” single.
Gavin James – “Sober” (Live at The Pool)
‘Sober’ became a staple at BBC Radio 2, establishing itself for a lengthy six weeks on the A & B playlists. The ballad also found its feet on Spotify and Apple Music, surpassing two million streams across platforms. The single’s momentum hit stratospheric proportions when Gavin performed a stripped-back, string-assisted version of the song on the first-ever episode of The Heart of Saturday Night, Ireland’s new primetime live music show.
Gavin James has come a long way from his early days busking on Grafton Street. His international touring has resulted in 250,000 ticket sales for his headline shows across the world, including two nights at Dublin’s 13,000 capacity 3Arena. Last month, he made a triumphant return to the live arena, when he played to 40,000 people in Switzerland’s Wankdorf Stadium, for the Energy Air 2021 event.
To date, Gavin has accumulated over one billion streams, six million monthly listeners on Spotify, 32 Platinum and Gold records across the globe, and a top 20 UK airplay chart position. Also, he has played shows with Niall Horan, Ed Sheeran, and Sam Smith.

‘Greatest Hits’ was co-written by Ollie Green (Freya Ridings, Lewis Capaldi), and Fiona Bevan (who co-wrote One Direction’s #1 hit, ‘Little Things,’ with Ed Sheeran). Also, the song was co-produced by Ivor Novello-nominated songwriter, Mark Ralph (Years & Years, Clean Bandit, Jax Jones).
