    About Gabrielle Aplin

    The past few years have been a whirlwind for Gabrielle Aplin whose career took off when she built a massive fanbase by posting videos of herself singing online back in 2012. Aplin went on to release her debut album English Rain in 2013 which spawned her iconic cover of ‘The Power Of Love’ which reached #1 in the UK. With a slew of further top 10 hits including ‘Please Don’t Say You Love Me’ ‘Home’ ‘Salvation’ and ‘Panic Cord’. English Rain is now certified Gold in the UK. 

    18 months of international touring followed, where Aplin racked up a further 3 international #1s. Playing shows and going on tour all over the world had a huge impact on Gabrielle and fed into her sophomore album ‘Light Up The Dark’  (2015) which displayed a maturing in Aplin’s sound with the anthemic singles like ‘Sweet Nothing’ and title track ‘Light Up The Dark’. 

    Gabrielle’s next release was the impossibly catchy ‘Miss You’ a track that  Gabrielle released on her own record label Never Fade Records and which has redefined Aplin’s sound.

    The Miss You EP has now racked up over 60 million streams combined. Following the release of this EP Aplin headed out on a sold out tours in the UK, Japan and most recently a string of sold out  headline dates across North America. Last year also saw Gabrielle Aplin play the UK festival circuit including The Other Stage at Glastonbury. 

    Gabrielle’s most recent release ‘Waking Up Slow’ (2017) is her most jubilant and confident musical offering so far. “Waking Up Slow” the lead single taken from her EP ‘Avalon’ was lauded by tastemakers such as Popjustice as one of the best pop songs of 2017 and the track shot to #1 on the Hype Machine chart. 

    Gabrielle is currently working on her highly anticipated third album which will be released early next year.
