Gavin DeGraw Tours To Support FREE

NASHVILLE, Tenn. March 23, 2009) — On March 31, platinum recording Yamaha artist Gavin DeGraw will release a new collection of songs titled FREE — a raw, organic-sounding recording that showcases DeGraw's earthy charm and ever-evolving songwriting talent.

In keeping with the stripped-down feel of FREE, Gavin will hit the road on March 27 for an extensive spring tour he has dubbed his "Where It Began" tour, in which audiences will be taken on a musical journey back to DeGraw's roots for a series of intimate full band and solo performances.

"We'll take a similar approach to the live shows as we did on the album," he says. "This tour is all about creating that very close connection with the audience."
