Gavin DeGraw to Hold Concert at SNHU

Manchester, N.H. (April 6, 2009) – Singer and songwriter Gavin DeGraw will perform at Southern New Hampshire University’s Fieldhouse on April 19 at 8 p.m. Doors will open at 7 p.m. 

Tickets will be on sale at http://www.snhutickets.com/ and at the SNHU Student Center Information Booth beginning February 11.  Admission for SNHU students is $15; for SNHU faculty, staff and alumni, $20; for the general public $25. Limit six tickets per person.

DeGraw broke through in 2003 with the release of his debut album, “Chariot,” which awakened music fans across the country to a charismatic, vibrant young artist who connected with audiences in a way other contemporary musicians did not. Selling more than one million copies and earning platinum certification, “Chariot” yielded three hit singles – “I Don’t Want To Be” “Follow Through,” and the title track, “Chariot.” But it wasn’t just the numbers that confirmed DeGraw’s popularity. The song “I Don’t Want To Be” was chosen as the theme song for the hit TV show, “One Tree Hill.”

DeGraw’s second album, Gavin DeGraw, includes“In Love With A Girl,” which finds DeGraw crooning sweetly about the security of being in a relationship.  From the bluesy “Young Love” to the sing-song playfulness of “Next To Me,” Gavin DeGraw reveals the singer’s remarkable songwriting talents. “Let It Go,” is a slower, more mellow but still rapturous love song that, DeGraw says, is about convincing a woman to find comfort in you.  DeGraw has toured tirelessly, selling out to bigger and bigger audiences every time around.

This event is sponsored by the Coordinators of Activities and Programming Events.  C.A.P.E. is Southern New Hampshire University’s student-run organization responsible for planning both on-campus and off-campus events for students.  All proceeds will go towards the Student Government Association and student organizations. Contact the C.A.P.E. office at 603.645.9716 or cape@snhu.edu for more information.
