The Beginning

Gavin started playing guitar in the 5th grade. He won his elementary school talent show singing and playing guitar. He was immediately hooked. He began taking guitar lessons and started to learn other songs to play and sing.

He began listening to many different kinds of music and started paying attention to songwriting. During the next few years he kept performing at recitals and honing his skills on guitar. He even got to perform at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

Writing

During the Covid 19 lockdown, Gavin had time to focus on writing songs. He began putting pieces of music together and learned how to use a digital audio workstation. During the fall of 2022 he wrote “Hold My Hand” and soon after wrote “Not Alone”. During the spring of 2o23, he recorded both songs and released “Hold My Hand” as his first single on Spotify and Apple Music. “Hold My Hand is kind of like a diary of my life at the point I wrote it. It’s really interesting to look back on it now,” says Gavin. “I wrote Not Alone about fighting with someone you love. No matter how angry or hurt you may be, you still love that person.”

 

Building Momentum

In May of 2023, Gavin released “Come to the River” and got a very positive reaction worldwide. “Seeing it get played in places like Chile and Argentina was pretty crazy. Then I had articles written about it in publications in other countries, which was also wild,” says Gavin. This summer he released “Constellations” which was explored more of a pop sound, with a breezy tropical house beat and funk guitars. “Constellations” has gone on to garner attention in places as far away as Japan and Ukraine.

In November of 2023 Gavin released “Undertow” which has been his biggest single to date. “This song is a mash up of different styles,” says Gavin. “It’s got this big back beat with a funky guitar, then we added a mandolin and violins. We really wanted to make it feel timeless, like it was hard to pin down what era it came from.”
