Gavin DeGraw is a multi-platinum selling singer, performer and songwriter. He first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, “Chariot,” which sold over one 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 #1 on the digital sales chart and at #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,” which Billboard dubbed “a rocking homerun,” 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. His third studio album, “Sweeter,” was released in September, 2011 and produced the smash single, “Not Over You,” co-written with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder. The track reached #1 on the Hot AC charts, was a top 10 hit on Top 40, and was certified double platinum.
In 2013, DeGraw released his fourth studio album, “Make A Move,” which included the hit song “Best I Ever Had” and garnered rave reviews from such publications as Billboard, People and Entertainment Weekly among many others. In addition, Gavin was nominated for his first Grammy for “We Both Know,” the song he co-wrote with Colbie Calliat for the 2013 film, “Safe Haven.”
Since then he has been consistently touring around the world, including sold out dates with the legendary Billy Joel.
