Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gavin Haley has teamed up with rising K-R&B artist SOLE to release an Asia-exclusive rework of his hypnotic hit ‘The Way I Am’.

Although based halfway across the globe, Gavin has built a significant fanbase in Asia, with his Top 5 Cities on Spotify being Taipei, Singapore, Quezon City, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur. His popular hits ‘Jet Lag’, and ‘The Way I Am’ featuring Ella Vos have had 9 million and over 17 million streams respectively.

South Korean R&B/Soul artist SOLE first burst on to the scene via her appearance on The Voice Korea (Season 2) in 2013. In 2017, she began gaining global recognition when she released her first two singles “RIDE” and “Slow”, and has since collaborated with notable artists such as Dynamicduo, Jooyoung and more. 

Fans in Asia can listen to this collaboration by the two a month before it becomes available worldwide.


The original track was released just over a year ago and has racked up over 17 million digital streams. 

On the collaboration, Gavin shares,

“Working with SOLE was smooth. We got her vocal back and instantly it added to the song. Her voice is so powerful and raw…it feels like she was made for this song. I hope we can connect to even more parts of the world :)”

Says SOLE,

“I loved the song [when I first heard it] and how personal it sounded after learning and understanding the lyrics. It was such a wonderful and fun experience putting my perspective of it in Korean, and I feel grateful to have been given this opportunity to sing with Gavin.”

Just a week ago, Gavin released the emotionally charged track and accompanying music video  “So Sick of Love”. 

He also announced that his new EP Unfolding will be released via Red Bull Records on November 13.
