Gavin Turek - On The Line
It's impossible not to become infatuated with disco-pop princess Gavin Turek. The L.A. 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 the female vocalist for his latest project Tuxedo. (You may recognize her as the golden goddess gracing the stage with them this past year, everywhere from the legendary Hollywood Bowl to Japan).
2015 was an an unveiling of sorts for Gavin. After releasing her two disco-tinged singles via iheartcomix/1nfity, she was named Spin named her Top Artist to Watch and her single "Don't Fight It" as one of the best tracks of 2015. Late last summer, she 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.
