Gavin Chappell-Bates is an acoustic folk-rock singer-songwriter from Cambridge, England.
Gavin's second album - 'The Last One' - was released in March 2018 after a successful crowd-funding campaign. It began life with the thought: ‘<i>what would you do if you were the last human alive when the world as we know it ends?</i>’ It features a variety of talented musicians including Booga from Ezio, Paul Richards from Fred’s House and Neil Bruce from Bouquet of Dead Crows. It includes the singles ‘Lovely Day’, ‘Bad Faith / Good Faith’ and ‘The Sanctuary of Stars’.
'Do What You Like' is the fourth single to be released from the album. It will be available on Thursday 4th October 2018, World Animal Day, with all proceeds going to animal welfare and conservation charities.
<i>“The Last One is a wonderfully crafted album, full of strong tracks worthy of repeated listens.” </i> <b>FATEA Magazine</b>
Gavin’s music has featured on BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2. He released his first solo EP – ‘Black Holes’ – in February 2015, and his debut album - ‘We Are The Ones’ – in April 2016, on R*E*P*E*A*T Records.
Gavin set off on his first ever tour in September 2014 and has since played venues such as the Cambridge Corn Exchange, The Rescue Rooms (Nottingham), The Hunter Club (Bury St. Edmunds) and Norwich Arts Centre, as well as festivals including Cambridge’s Big Weekend, Homegrown, Wild Wood Rumpus, Strawberry Fair and Subterranean.
