REVOLT Sessions | Bio: Gavin Turek

Hear Gavin's story.

It’s impossible not to become infatuated with disco-pop princess Gavin Turek.

The LA Native is always clad in a hand-made 70s fringe dress (she has one in every color) and armed with the best dance moves you’ve ever seen. It’s easy to draw comparisons anywhere from Tina Turner to Beyoncé but really, Gavin is her own force to be reckoned with. Even the most apathetic concert goer leaves her shows revitalized and obsessed.

Mayer Hawthorne was the first to take notice, not only inviting Gavin to open his sold out tours early on but also bringing her in as a guest vocalist for his latest project Tuxedo. (You may recognize her as the golden disco goddess gracing the stage with them this past year, everywhere from the legendary Hollywood Bowl to Japan).

Last year was an an unveiling of sorts for Gavin Turek. After releasing her two disco-tinged singles via iheartcomix/1nfity, Spin named her as the summer’s Top Artist to Watch and her single "Don’t Fight It” as one of the best tracks of 2015. Last summer, Gavin released a mini album You’re Invited, a collection of sexy electronic tunes with longtime collaborator and electro genius TOKiMONSTA. The girl power duo premiered the new music via a short series of sold-out shows around the country and the album quickly became a favorite for tastemakers like NPR, The Fader, KCRW, and Beats1.

This spring, Gavin has already toured the West Coast and headlined a sold-out month long residency in Los Angeles to premiere a slew of new songs, including her latest single “On The Line” out via Hit City U.S.A. The single premiered #1 on HypeMachine and KCRW DJ Anne Lit proclaimed it the “single of the summer.” Fans can expect a new music and more tour dates in fall 2016. | Source:
