L.A. Native Gavin is a fearless performer.
A trained dancer, blossoming songwriter and captivating vocalist, Gavin is a triple threat of an artist whose musical career has only just begun. Discovered by the first lady of Brainfeeder, TOKiMONSTA, Gavin has lent her voice to several tracks on TOKi’s Creature Dreams EP, including its lead single, “Little Pleasures.” The single has been a recent favorite on KCRW and a number of independent radio stations across the country; Prefix Magazine praises this collaboration: “Little Pleasures is the clearest success… Turek wraps herself around a gently oscillating boom-bap – delectably dusty, and utterly tranquilizing.”
Yes, she’s come a long way from the days of making beats and writing music in her college dorm room. Back then, Gavin didn’t necessarily plan on sharing her music with the rest of the world. She says, “Writing was simply my emotional outlet so I started making music on my laptop. That led to my sister posting some of it online, which then led to working with incredible producers and the start of an album.” As she continues to experiment with different musical textures and sounds, Gavin finds inspiration from a myriad of life experiences including some months spent absorbing the sights and sounds of Ghana and India. Certainly, her work with TOKiMONSTA and the latter’s electronic medium have also found their place in Gavin’s developing sound.
