COVENTRY music fans will be in for a treat when multi-talented songstress Gabrielle Aplin performs in the city on Thursday (June 9).

With over 63 million Spotify streams and 80 million YouTube views, Gabrielle is a star of the digital age – her videos featured on BBC Introducing’s YouTube channel alone have attracted more views than those of Ed Sheeran, George Ezra and Royal Blood.

The indie folk singer first found fame in 2012 as the voice of John Lewis’ Christmas advertising campaign for which she covered Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s The Power of Love – a track which topped the charts to hit number one.

Soon after and still a young and fresh faced 19-year-old, Aplin released her debut album English Rain – which included tracks she’d written as young as 15 and won her a huge following of international fans.

Now, on the back of 18 months international touring, Gabrielle is set to perform to Coventry crowds at Hillfields-based Kasbah.

The 23-year old has also been secured to play at the Isle of Wight festival this summer along with the likes of Queen, Stereophonics and The Cribs.

Amarjit Kullar, of the Kasbah, said: “Gabrielle has achieved international success since she shot to fame three years ago so we are very excited to announce her date at the Kasbah.

“Her latest album, Light Up the Dark, has taken her in a bolder and more energetic direction – we’re hoping to attract fans of all ages who we are sure will enjoy both her popular favourites as well as this new and exciting sound.”

Tickets for the +14 show are priced at £14.50.
