Blue Mountains Musician Gavin Bowles Releases New Single
“The Daily Grind was inspired by the circumstances I was in at the time and the struggle that comes with such a situation – told with a healthy dose of sarcasm,” Bowles explains.
“A ‘daily grind’ can be anything from working two jobs to being overworked in a home office or even getting housework done.”
Drawing from influences such as Elvis Costello, Paul Kelly and Tim Rogers, The Daily Grind is the latest in a line of Bowles tunes about triumphs, tribulations and the songwriter’s idiosyncratic view on modern life.
“Most of my songs are based on personal experiences or my view of a situation. Either way, they're definitely an insight into my psyche,” Bowles says.
Over the past decade Bowles has made a name for himself as an accomplished songwriter and performer through national tours and considerable radio play, as both a solo artist and as front man for Sydney rock trio Picture Perfect.
Bowles says living in the Blue Mountains “inspires me creatively”.
“Having lived in faster-paced environments like North Melbourne and western Sydney, the relaxed atmosphere of the mountains allows me more breathing space to be creative,” he says.
The Daily Grind is out now on Stranger Than Fiction Records and available through Spotify, Bandcamp, Apple Music and Google Music.
