Emerging singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gavin Haley has released his brand new EP ‘Unfolding’ via Red Bull Records.
The 7-track EP comes alongside the official music video for his latest infectious single “Self Control” featuring UK R&B Soul artist Izzy Bizu.
A livestream event, described as “a music show designed to improve mood, creativity and well-being”, celebrates the launch of the EP.
It consists of meditation and yoga sessions with Gavin and his special guests, performances by Gavin. Details here.
“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.
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.”
Speaking of their collaboration on the track “Self Control”, Izzy 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”
