Dave Giles Tickets
Dave Giles: The Free Spirited Vocalist of the Millennium
Dave Giles writes, sings and tours the UK, staying close to his loyal fan base. He is an independent spirit, often on the road performing his brand of folk-rock music with just his acoustic guitar and ukulele. The artist has built a large fan base from private gigs, and is now back to entertain audiences, live with his unrestrained vocals and surprising theatrics.
Scheduled for multiples dates, Giles will begin a widespread tour of the UK. Together with his backing band, Giles will perform at The Cellars, The O2 Academy 3, The Black Swan and Leeds University Union. Final stops before wrapping up the tour will be at The Waterfront in Norwich and The Borderline in London. The artist has been enjoying a successful run following a string of sold out shows in Manchester, and Dave Giles tickets are moving fast, ahead of upcoming performances.
To help raise awareness of the blood cancers Leukaemia and Lymphoma, Giles regularly donates to the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Foundation. He took an interest in the society's fundraising activities when his musical sound track "Another Fine Day" was used in a video by the research body to promote the London Bikeathon event. Community funding is vital to the organisation's service, and Giles was inspired to commit 20 percent of his revenue from downloaded music sales to this charity.
A breakout solo artist, Giles was first a guitarist in a large underground indie band. His decision to go solo was borne out of a need to explore his own musical abilities. He developed his raw song writing skills and vocals while playing his guitar. He took inspiration from acts like The Beatles, Kate Nash and Billy Brag. Giles' musical genre is best described as a melding of folk, acoustic rock and organic tunes.
After making a name for himself as the enigmatic guitarist of The Rileys band, Giles decided to go solo, establishing himself as a singer and songwriter. His fans supported the launch of his debut album "The First Seven," showing their dedication through sold out shows at the Barfly in Camden. Within a year, he had received notable exposure which prompted his tour, first in support of the British rock band, Ivyrise, before headlining his own UK tour. Giles was able to make the crossover into mainstream while securing a growing fan base.
Giles released two albums from his record label that were both widely successful. The debut album, "The First Seven," was released a few months following his shift to solo artist. Nine months after, his second album, "Tales Of A Social Misfit," was released. Both albums were limited editions that were sold out on major download sites soon after their release. Giles' loyal fans have supported him through much of his free-spirited musical endeavours. The success of his albums and crowd support throughout his tours are testaments to his fans' loyalty.
Dave Giles performances are theatrical, interactive and amusing. Giles not only entertains by singing, but he also incites his audience to communicate with him on stage, sometimes via tweets. This spontaneous exchange with the crowd enables lively acts and witty banter, some of which are effectively transitioned into his lyrics. He has developed a reputation as a charismatic, humorous performer, who uses a variety of props to promote memorable show experiences. For his upcoming tour, fans can expect a mixture of unexpected treats.
