Get an exclusive look at the video for 'Make Me Believe' below.
Hot Press is thrilled to premiere 'Make Me Believe', the debut single from Irish singer-songwriter Gavin Fox, alongside an accompanying music video shot in St. MacCullin's Church in Lusk, Co. Dublin.
The soulful track is inspired by Gavin's own experiences, growing up in an extremely religious and restrictive environment. As part of a Jehovah's Witness family, he was not permitted to socialise with non-believers in his younger years. Instead, he spent many hours being taught how to deliver public sermons – delivering his first to an audience of over 100 people at the age of 7. He was also schooled in preaching and spent much of his time going from door-to-door.
Having taken the steps to leave the religion, Gavin is now, after many years, ready to tell his story. He had no idea, however, that his story would come out in the form of music. Over lockdown in 2020, he discovered a hidden talent for songwriting, and has explored his emotional story across three remarkably honest songs – of which 'Make Me Believe' is the first to be released. His debut EP, On Second Thoughts, is out on March 26.
Drawing influence from the legendary likes of Mundy and Villagers, 'Make Me Believe' firmly establishes Gavin Fox as one of the most compelling new singer-songwriters on these shores.
