One artist that everybody knows, especially if you’re British, is Gabrielle Aplin.
Gabrielle Aplin is best known as the voice behind the 2012 John Lewis Christmas song, ‘The Power of Love’ – her debut single which went to #1 on the UK Singles Charts.
After wowing with her debut single, her debut album – ‘English Rain’ – spawned singles such as ‘Please Don’t Say You Love Me’, ‘Panic Cord’, ‘Home’ and ‘Salvation’ and went to #2 on the UK Album Charts and was certified Gold in both the UK and Australia. However, Aplin hasn’t always been signed to a major label (Parlophone) and had big hits.
In fact, she isn’t signed anymore. But does that matter? No – because Gabrielle Aplin teaches us the crucial lesson that, in 2018, if you’ve got music that needs to be heard, you don’t necessarily need a major label to help you get millions (and when we say millions we mean MILLIONS) or streams.
On ReverbNation Discover, James Gilmore tracked Gabrielle Aplin's rise and rise again from independent artist, to major label artist, to an even bigger independent artist again.
