Gabrielle Aplin (born 10 October 1992) is a British singer-songwriter.Aplin came to attention and gained a massive online following after publishing acoustic covers of songs by bands such as Paramore and You Me at Six on YouTube.

In February 2012, Aplin announced she had signed a record deal with Parlophone and was recording her debut album. She gained mainstream attention the following November when she was selected to soundtrack a John Lewis television commercial with a cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “The Power of Love”, which topped the UK Singles Chart in December 2012. Gabrielle’s second single “Please Don’t Say You Love Me” followed in 2013, it became her second top ten hit on the chart, peaking at number six.

English singer/songwriter Gabrielle Aplin shot to fame in the U.K. toward the end of 2012, when her haunting rendition of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s hit “The Power of Love” was used in the Christmas advertising campaign for retailer John Lewis. Aplin was raised in the small village of Sutton Benger, Wiltshire, where she learned to play guitar at the age of 11, before also taking up the piano. Her musical development was documented on her YouTube channel, which includes a collection of diverse cover versions of artists such as Bon Iver, Bob Dylan, and Katy Perry. Her digital videos amassed a huge following and she soon began to write her own original material. This led to her first self-released EPs, Acoustic EP (2010), Never Fade (2011), and Home (2012), which illustrated her penchant for honest, heartfelt songwriting, and uncovered her own folk sound. After Never Fade was released in 2011, Aplin was invited to BBC’s Maida Vale studios to perform on the BBC Introducing… sessions as her star continued to rise. Following more internet exposure, alongside airtime on BBC’s Radio 1 and a headline tour, Aplin signed to Parlophone and began working on material for her debut full-length. During this period her popular cover version of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “The Power of Love” made it to number one in the U.K. charts. In 2013 Aplin released her debut full-length album, English Rain, which featured a body of new work, alongside the title track from her early EP Home. The album was a success, reaching #2 in the U.K. and, to coincide with the 2014 U.S. release of her English Rain EP, she went on her first North American tour. Alpin’s follow-up LP, Light Up the Dark, arrived in September 2015.
