INTERVIEW | Gavin Haley

Gavin Haley is a musician from the US and has just released his single, '96 today. Recently signed by Red Bull Records, Haley managed to reach over 3 million Spotify streams before his contract agreement with the label. Once a pro-cyclist, the singer explored the underground music scene in Europe when suffering with a collapsed lung. It was here that he discovered his own sound and decided to try music.

His single, 96', is a beautifully written song with a soul capturing melody. The "heart-warming" song is uplifting and full of finger clicks. Soft and gentle but full of power, Haley has created a graceful song that everyone can find a place for in their hearts.

The track is about the need for eternal love and is packed with intense and passionate lyrics. His smooth vocals make the song that bit more raw and delicate without losing its strong control. Capturing you from the get-go, 96' is definitely a track that you're going to be listening to this Summer. Its melodious sound makes it perfect to soak up in the summer sun.

I spoke to Gavin Haley about his new music and to learn a bit more about him.

______________

How did your music career come about?

I’ve always enjoyed music. It just feels different.. almost like something that was already there. However for me growing up it was all about athletics. My life for a long time was just bikes. Yes, like the ones you pedal. I was blessed enough that racing took me a lot of different places around the world. But when it came to music, I was just learning bits and pieces along the way. A couple years back I got to a place I could no longer ignore my passion for music & compete in cycling how I wanted. Because of that and some other factors, I quit racing. during all this music was my best friend and something that helped get through so much personally. It's been a blessing.

You recently got signed to Red Bull Records, how did this come about and what do you think they can do for you?

I’m looking forward to showing my music to a greater audience with Red Bull Records supporting the vision. It’s a pretty cool collaboration as when I was an athlete I had goals of being an athlete with Red Bull.

How would you describe ‘96 to someone who hasn’t heard it yet?

It’s a heart warming song. I don’t normally say that type of shit but it’s true, haha. The song feels amazing and I hope it’s played at many weddings and in moments people share together. Go get in the feels.



What was your inspiration behind ‘96?

The universe.

What can we expect from you in the coming months?

More music. Got some content and music coming & I’m ready for it to be out. I’m in the studio everyday and fans will be getting a lot more throughout the rest of this year.

If you could only listen to one album for the next three months, what would you listen to?

Frank Ocean - Blonde

What’s your must-read book?

Many Lives Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss

When you’re not writing music, on stage or recording, what can you be found doing?

Hooping baby! Catch me in the sun rays, drinking juice, shooting hoops.

Do you have a message for your fans?

You won’t find every answer on the internet but you can for sure get anxious trying. Be more present. Focus on your breathing everyday. Love more. Don’t be so serious :)
