13 Songs, 47 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded in a pub, 2014’s Live at Whelans unveiled Dubliner Gavin James’s gift for a stirring melody. His first studio album refits many of those songs with sumptuousness and cinematic oomph. Thus “Ghost”’s gentle melancholy is elevated on swirling strings, “22” is rebuilt into a stadium-ready piano ballad and the title track, debuted here, swells with hymnal drama. Sometimes, though, James’s pain-singed voice is enough by itself and the spare intimacy of “Hole in My Heart” is wisely preserved.

Amazing!

I bought this cd when I was in Ireland this winter and brought it back home with me to the states. I could not stop listening to this album. Every single song is really good and they blend together really well. Get this album, you won't regret it.

The sweet sounds of a bitter pill

I was introduced to Gavin James’ music in 2015 when he opened for Sam Smith in Miami. I fell in love with his soulful voice and have been a fan ever since. I truly enjoyed Live in Whelan and Bitter Pill is a refreshing remastering of some of those live songs I loved.
