I went out with my good friend Nick Kent for a photoshoot in London last week. Here are the results: PHOTOSHOOT. Please leave some comments to let me know what you think :D
So today the Christmas Party gig sold out. Which I’m over the moon about because I’ve only done three headline London shows in 2011 and they’ve all sold out!
So onto my next project. The Tall Man Shortbread Tour, February 2012. Featuring gigs in Winchester, Sheffield, Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester and Wrexham. It’s just gone on sale (www.davejgiles.com/tour) and I am really excited. Tickets are £7 and there are 15 VIP tickets for each show (for details on VIP tickets can be found here). All the venues are small, so I am expecting some of them to sell out, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
I’m in the process of finalising the local support acts, but I’m pleased to announce that Room Service will be doing the whole tour with me. I’ve known these guys for a while now and they always put on a top show, as well as being extremely nice lads!
There’ll be free shortbread biscuits for everyone :D
So to celebrate the end of a great year for Dave, he’s going to have an intimate Christmas party at the Camden Barfly on the afternoon of Sunday 18th December.
Its a 14+ event, and Dave will be choosing his support acts over the next couple of weeks. Doors will be at 2.30, the gig will be finished before 6 and anyone under 18 will have to leave by 6.30… although Dave will be staying in the bar so if you are over 18, you can carry on partying with him. It is Christmas after all.
This is an intimate show, and there will only be 120 tickets onsale for this and it will be his last London show until June. They’re £8 each, and Dave promises lots of Christmassy goodness and little surprises. Tickets can be purchased from here: TICKETS
Anyone who orders tickets will also be entitled to 25% off t-shirts and hoodies from his webstore (click here), if done on the same order. simply put in the code xmas1 when you come to check out.

A big thank you to all those who came out to watch my tour. It was truly overwhelming how many people came out to watch!
So my first headline tour is just about to start and I’m getting really excited about it.
I’ve had a few new bits of merchandise made which i think look really great.. What do you think? If you’re not coming on the tour or if you want to make sure you get the right size, (as I only have 50 of each design made), you can order yours now by going to here: www.davegiles.bigcartel.com. You can also buy tickets for the tour from this site.
Dave has got his first headline tour of the UK in October and will be on the road with his full backing band. Support from The Candle Thieves and FranKo. A limited amount of VIP tickets are available for each gig!
I don’t ever want to be considered a political songwriter, but the beauty of being a singer songwriter is that when something really gets to you, you can just put it out in a song.
So the new EP is finished, and you can order your copy of the limited edition double Cd version from here: Click here You can also listen to a couple of the tracks on my myspace page: www.myspace.com/davegiles
