GAVIN HALEY Releases new track “Sad Season”

Singer/songwriter Gavin Haley weaves personal experiences into timeless narratives that feel universally relatable especially in his latest track “Sad Season” out today. Finding inspiration from a gamut of artists, including Ed Sheeran, Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt and Bruce Springsteen, Haley admits that he cares little about conforming to a specific sound. Instead, he prefers to concentrate on the storytelling, crafting narratives that feel accessible at all levels. CLICK HERE to listen to “Sad Season.”

A former professional cyclist turned musician, Haley’s genre-bending approach to pop pairs a plethora of contemporary influences with introspective lyrics, underpinned by an enduring sense of hope.

While competing with the national cycling team, Haley suffered an injury that resulted in a collapsed lung, setting back his travel by several months. During his recovery, he explored and found inspiration in Europe’s underground music scene, becoming enamored with energetic live performances filled with a grit and energy.

The juxtaposition between his life as an athlete and a musician offer endless fodder for writing and thought, but so does life on the West Coast. And while making people feel good will always remain at the heart of his sound, his exposure to both pop and praise songs is finding new junctures with electronic and R&B-facing sounds.

Haley captured the attention of record labels and recently signed with Red Bull Records.  He is performing select tour dates this Fall with fellow West Coasters XYLØ and Corey Harper.
