In a heavily populated world full of dreamers, it comes as no surprise that the music business welcomes thousands of individuals every year – each one ready to become the next big star. Despite how normal this practice is now considered, out of the millions that have walked past the industry’s gates, one soulful artist confidently states there has never been one like him.
Based in Dallas, Texas, GAvaz is the rising singer and songwriter paving the way for himself in the music world. Born in Lagos, Nigeria, the brilliant music artist migrated to the United States of America in 2018 to pursue his dreams. The trip was not easy but, spurred by his passion and dedication to his craft, GAvaz persevered until he arrived in the land of opportunities.
However, it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. With no friends and no established connections in the country, GAvaz pulled himself by his bootstraps and got to work. He pushed himself day and night and managed to mix hard-hitting beats while keeping food on the table.
In 2018, he released the singles “Olote,” which featured fellow artist Adeola and “Come Back to Me.” The tracks received relative success and laid the groundwork for what is to be GAvaz’s grand entrance into the music charts.
The following year, the artist decided to showcase his versatility – jumping on another genre with “On My Mind,” which croons the talents of TyGotFanzz, and “Xperience the EP,” which hosts five game-changing songs. Released in August of that year, the EP has generated buzz online and is a definite move that secured thousands of loyal followers and counting.
On his skills reminiscent of the industry’s greats and the distinct style that brands him as an original artist, GAvaz shares, “I am a crazy individual. I love to make the impossible possible. My daily life experience plays a big part in my music; some are facts and how I feel, while some things I say in my music are just for the fun of it and entertainment of my audience.”
GAvaz’s unique ability to switch sounds and fit seamlessly into any given genre, as made evident by his outstanding discography, has earned him an awe-inducing reputation within his crowd. His signature rasp and heartbreaking melodies have made countless fans swoon in delight and have captured the attention of giant music executives.
In 2020, he once again proved rumors of his unprecedented musical prowess true. GAvaz released no less than five tracks last year – each carrying a different sound than the one before. At the time, his discography included “Who Said It,” “Shake Anthem (feat. TyGotFanzz),” “Freddy,” “Without You,” and “Pump It.”
“I sound different on every song,” GAvaz shares. “I have recordings out on streaming platforms to fit every mood. I have songs for hustle, heartbreak, love, struggle, racial discrimination and, my main focus, hype and turn up the music.”
As he explores different genres and potential paths towards realizing his dreams, it is apparent that there is no stopping the inspiring and versatile music artist on his way to the top. Testifying his dedication, he recently released a song entitled “KooKoo” this year. By producing the track, GAvaz hopes to connect with his fans and introduce his identity as a one-of-a-kind artist who loves crafting drill music and afro beats.
