10 for 2013: #9 – Gabrielle Aplin

By on Thursday, 6th December 2012 at 11:00 am

A couple weeks ago, we asked you, the fine readers of TGTF, to vote for the top 10 artists you thought would be massive in the new year. Coming in at #9 is a young girl whose recent brush with high street advertising could prove to be lighting her way to super stardom…

At the beginning of November, the name of Gabrielle Aplin was on the tip of nearly everyone’s tongue. Where had she come from and how did she land this year’s John Lewis Christmas advert? Last year’s advert skyrocketed Slowing Moving Millie into chart success with her cover of The Smiths’ ‘Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want’, and the same is expected for Aplin. The delicately rendered ‘The Power of Love’ graces this year’s ad depicting the devotional love of a snowman. This Frankie Goes to Hollywood cover was interestingly made available as a single exactly 28 years after its original release.


So who is Gabrielle Aplin? This is your classic internet star. Finding her voice on YouTube with countless cover tunes, she built a following with nearly 14 million views on her channel. The industry finally took notice and Parlophone signed this youngster (yeah, she just turned 20!) earlier this year. With a lovely clear voice, the emotion in her voice belie her years. She may have staked her claim to fame with a collection of covers, but I believe her talent really shows in her original songs from the EP ‘Never Fade’, especially the title track.

The past 4 years have seen Aplin release three EPs, tour as a headliner, and fill support slots with the likes of Gotye. She seems eminently poised for success in 2013. Her debut album is set for release in March, but her first official single, ‘Please Don’t Say You Love Me’, had to be delayed to make way for that pesky Christmas release. Probably a good move though as she is currently at #7 on the charts!
