SWEETER, Gavin’s fourth album, available August 9th, finds Gavin co-writing for the first time in his career on a few of the album tracks, including his work with fellow piano player and master helmer/writer Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote and produced the album’s first single “Not Over You,” and the title track “Sweeter,” as well as with Andrew Frampton (The Script, Natasha Bedingfield). Gavin also worked with a host of top-notch producers including Butch Walker (Weezer, Avril Lavigne), Eric Rosse (Sara Bareilles, Tori Amos) and Ron Aniello (Barenaked Ladies, Matt Nathanson).
Gavin first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, Chariot, which sold more than a million copies, earned platinum certification and yielded three hit singles: “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through” and the title-track, “Chariot.” Gavin’s self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles “In Love With A Girl,” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.” In 2009, Gavin released Free as a gift to his die-hard fans clamoring for recorded versions of Gavin’s live favorites. Gavin has made numerous appearances on television shows like The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Live with Regis & Kelly, Good Morning America, and many others.
