Multi-platinum and GRAMMY nominated recording artist Gavin DeGraw releases his seventh and most personal studio album, “Face The River”. On the album, DeGraw recounts his late parents’ most meaningful memories and valuable lessons as he stitches together a timeless tale of his own soundtracked by a signature fusion of pop, soul, country, folk, and funk. Listen to the new album here.
“Elements of Face The River are definitely my parents’ story,” Gavin shares. “There are also moments of me watching it. This was the record I felt like I had to make. I got to bear witness to the greatest love story of two people who would do anything for each other and their family. They were very loyal and committed. They didn’t have money, but they gave me something way better than money. I saw the pinnacle of what love should be.”
DeGraw will celebrate his album release this weekend as he wraps up his headlining Full Circle Tour with two sold out shows at The Bitter End in New York City tonight and tomorrow. The tour will conclude on Sunday at the State Theatre in New Jersey. The tour has featured over 20 dates of intimate shows as Gavin has returned to some of the small clubs where he started his career to showcase a first look of the album in its entirety.
GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter Gavin DeGraw’s inimitable voice and soulful style boldly bloomed on his 2003 platinum-certified full-length debut, Chariot. It included the gold single “Follow Through,” as well as both platinum hits, “Chariot,” and “I Don’t Want To Be.” In 2008, his self-titled second album, Gavin DeGraw, bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 powered by the platinum-selling single “In Love With a Girl.” 2011’s gold-certified Sweeter saw him return to the Top 10 as the single “Not Over You” went four times platinum. Meanwhile, his 2013 duet with Colbie Caillat, “We Both Know,” garnered a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Song Written For Visual Media” for Safe Haven. He’s the rare talent who could seamlessly share the stage with Billy Joel and The Allman Brothers or Maroon 5 and Shania Twain.
