Singer-songwriter Gavin Haley is on the up and we could not be more excited about watching his rise to the top. The Kentucky native just released a new vibey single, “Body Language,” and if you haven’t already, we highly suggest adding it to your summer playlists for those late nights and long drives.
You may have gotten familiar with Haley via his fan-favorite song, “The Way I Am” featuring Ella Voss from his debut EP, Long Game. The powerful track gained him millions of streams and new fans all across the globe.
Another stand-out is “Tati,” featuring Yung Pinch from his sophomore EP, Unfolding. The snappy single even caught the attention of Blink-182’s Travis Barker, who ended up releasing a remix of the song!
Today, you can find Gavin opening some shows for pop-sensation Tate McRae on her highly-anticipated tour this spring and summer. We’re so happy for this budding singer-songwriter and know that he is gonna make sure each crowd has a good time.
Luckily for us, he let us in on some of his favorite songs to listen to while traveling on tour. It’s a great list, with some throwbacks and personal stories mixed in. Check them out below!
when i was maybe 12 or so my family took a road trip to new mexico. we had a cross country camp there and this song was played at least 30 times times. I was addicted to the tempo and upbeat energy it gave me. whenever i’m on road-trips i tend to put this song on.
before i’d ever performed any shows.. the video game “Guitar Hero” was a big addiction. this song in particular i would absolutely rip on my 5 color note guitar. i think kid Gavin would be proud to hear he’s on tour.
i love Arlo and this song always puts me in the same space. lovely for driving and the lyrics are really moving.
the drive from Portland to San Francisco is like 9+ hours with some beautiful roads & vistas. It only felt right to add this gem.
stripped. great writing. love this song and takes me back to my childhood. my sister put me on to Never Shout Never when i turned 13.
grew up in the church and switchfoot was about as edgy as i got in 2004. lots of memories jamming to this band and love the space they create in their music.
one of my best friends showed me Beach House driving through bodega bay in northern california when i was 16 or 17. I remember being on the coast and this song specifically playing.. there’s this moment the guitars bleed in @ 1:37 & every hair on my body stood up.
love his flow and message. introspective thinking and real smooth melodies.
playing this tune on tour and i’ve loved screaming the lyrics with the crowds every night.
this is the first song i ever sang for someone. i learned the chords on piano and my sister called one of her friends and had me sing it across the line. idk why but it’s a core memory for me. this tour i’m playing piano at the shows for the first time and it reminded me of this song.
