“She’s a real contender now.” 4 stars – Q

Following the positive reception that was greeted to her new album ‘Light Up The Dark’, Gabrielle Aplin can now confirm a major UK and Ireland headline tour that includes a Dublin show in Whelans on February 20th.
Tickets €22 including booking fee go on sale next Friday, October 2nd, at 9am from Ticketmaster.
*This is an over 18s show – I.D will be required.
‘Light Up The Dark’ adds a new chapter to a career that has already delivered 80 million Spotify streams, 90 million YouTube views, 1.5 million sales of single, and #1 chart positions in the UK and Australia over the course of her debut album ‘English Rain’.
‘Light Up The Dark’ has already received extensive Radio 1 support with a playlist for the title track as well as Huw Stephens’ Hottest Record followed by a second playlist for the recent single ‘Sweet Nothing’.
The new album was inspired by Joni Mitchell and the production on Feist’s ‘The Reminder’. “Her voice is just here, right at the front, and everything sits around it perfectly,” says Aplin. “I’ve also become much more comfortable writing songs about other people’s stories as well as my own, much of which is inspired by travelling and everything I’ve seen since my first album.”
Gabrielle’s recent underplay show at London’s Wilton’s Music Hall sold-out in less than 24 hours. The Evening Standard’s review drew comparisons with Florence + The Machine and Feist, and concluded that it was “A mini-triumph; greater ones will come.”
