Muse Monday: Gavin Turek

Muse Monday: Gavin Turek

It’s impossible not to become infatuated with Gavin Turek. According to NPR, the LA native will entertain you one way or another whether through her live performance (which is one part vocal acrobatics, one part immerse dance), or her music which seamlessly blends 70s funk inspired R&B, with poignant, honest lyrics. Growing up in Los Angeles, Gavin obsessively studied two things: music (the likes of Donna Summer, Prince, Lauryn Hill, Diana Ross. Michael Jackson) and all forms of dance. Originally aspiring to be a professional dancer, Gavin spent years training and traveling abroad, before eventually returning to singing and songwriting as her main medium of expression; but dance is naturally a vital component for her live shows. Even the most apathetic concert goer leaves her shows revitalized and inspired. In 2017, Gavin released her first proper EP “Good Look for You” via her own label Madame Gold Records. The EP garnered attention and praise from Stereogum, Nylon, Okayplayer, NPR, KCRW, Billboard, etc. all of which highlighted her songwriting chops and simultaneously retro yet modern sound. She followed up with a string of undeniable singles, including pop favorite, "WHITNEY" and a stunning visual produced by Lena Waithe to funk anthem, "2 AM." You may have heard her music stitched into the fabric of Netflix’s Dear White People or HBO’s High Maintenance, as a musical guest on Conan, or seen her on-tour in Japan, UK, China, France and across the states supporting artists like Hayley Kiyoko or Tuxedo. Her highly anticipated debut album, produced by Childish Gambino collaborator, Chris Hartz, drops this summer on her label, Madame Gold Records.
