GAVIN POVEY – Piano and Lead Vocals
Gavin began learning piano at 5 years of age, and he discovered rhythm & blues at age 13 when he heard a 78-rpm of Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson performing ‘Boogie woogie man’. Gavin realised what his piano tutor was teaching him was not what he wanted to learn! A lifetime of touring and recording followed, with such names as Kirsty McColl (there’s a guy works down the chip shop etc) Dave Edmunds (U.S, Japan and world tours) Dion, Shakin’ Stevens (15+ top ten UK hit singles) Albert Lee (2014 album ‘Frettening Behaviour’) plus many other artistes,
Gavin is now performing with his own band featuring songs that he has self-penned.
