About GAYLE:

On her incendiary debut EP, a study of the human experience volume one, 19-year-old singer/songwriter GAYLE shared a batch of songs capturing the most specific and vividly real emotions: the tension between longing for connection and fearing vulnerability, the risk and thrill of refusing to compromise your own needs. 

Released in early 2022, the six-track project features “abcdefu”: a double-platinum anthem that held the #1 spot on Top 40 radio for three consecutive weeks, topped the Billboard Global 200 for nine consecutive weeks, hit the top 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and propelled the Nashville-based artist to such milestones as earning her first-ever GRAMMY Award nomination in the prestigious “Song of the Year” category, being named as a Billboard Music Awards finalist, and earn such honors as American Music Award and People’s Choice Award nominations in “New Artist of the Year,” 2 MTV VMA nominations, a Kid’s Choice Award nomination, and an NSAI Award in their “10 Songs I Wish I’d Written” list. 

Amid navigating that whirlwind success, GAYLE headed back into the studio to create a study of the human experience volume two—a powerful new EP that doubles down on its predecessor’s unapologetic truth-telling, revealing even more of her inner world and cementing her status as a singular and immediately fascinating songwriter.

Her massively successful major-label debut, “abcdefu” has now amassed over two billion streams, while she has appeared on major TV shows like “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and earned such accolades as appearing on Billboard’s “21 Under 21” list and on Variety’s “Power of Young Hollywood Impact Report” for 2022, as well as being named a YouTube Artist On The Rise and an MTV Global Push Artist.

With tours supporting Taylor Swift and P!nk, and a live show resume that includes touring with Tate McRae and AJR, and playing a run of shows with pop-punk legends My Chemical Romance, GAYLE aims for what she refers to as “messy imperfection” in all of her live shows. 

“I truly believe that music is a unifying force, and I want to give people the space to be completely themselves and to see that there are other people in the world who feel the same way they do,” she says. And as she’s witnessed repeatedly in the past year, there’s a certain undeniable power in fully owning and accepting your truth. “My songs tend to come from being uncomfortable with what I’m feeling and not wanting to focus on it, but then getting to the point where I just need to get it all out,” she says. “If my music can help other people to make better sense of themselves, to come to terms with who they are and what they’re feeling, then that means the world to me.”
