KAV / Bio

Hailing from Leicester & spending most of his time between LA & London, KAV’s sound has been compared to Dylan, Primal Scream, BRMC, The Stones & The Stooges. He is backed Live by his Band of Blaggers, led by childhood friend & drummer Jim Portas. 

His debut Album was produced in LA by Josh Ostrander from the band Eastern Conference Champions & mastered by Stephen Marcussen (The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Johnny Cash, Nirvana, Primal Scream & The Black Crowes).

Whilst in the US he played at SXSW, CMJ, Toured with DATAROCK, and played key US shows including several shows at The Viper Room & The Satellite (formerly Spaceland), The El Rey Theatre & Kevin Bronson’s Buzz Bands LA @ The Echo Silverlake. 

In February 2012 KAV played an exclusive showcase at Gibson Guitar Studios, London.

A full UK tour will be announced for Sept/ Oct 2012, followed by a European Tour & US Dates. 

‘KAV combines the speed of the scream with the swagger of the stones’
Paul Lester - The Guardian UK.

'KAV is one of those one in a million artists that just exudes talent... Imagine if Bob Dylan was young in modern times & he had an addiction to sleaze and you’d be half way to understanding KAV’s sound. Simple, perfectly executed sleazy rock with hidden depths. Sick' - Alex Baker - Kerrang! Radio
