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 Jimmy Kimmel’s stage to the legendary Hollywood Bowl to Japan). Last year was 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. That 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. 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 an EP release and more tour dates in fall 2016.
CE
Caleb Eberhardt is "CE" (pronounced "see"), a self-produced Contemporary R&B/Hip Hop artist from San Francisco, CA. He currently resides in Brooklyn, NY.

Best known for being one-half of Quincy Vidal, a New York based boom-bap jazz/hip hop project, CE has been writing and producing music for upwards of 10 years.

Coping with the slow & painful loss of his father to Alzheimer's, while subsequently ending a four year relationship with the love of his life, his first official solo project takes us deeper into the explorations of his guarded subconscious.

Weaving together hauntingly-smooth melodies, dark production, and viscerally raw verses, CE cross-breeds familiar genres in ways that are unexpected and sophisticated. The lush, yet unsettling, sonic environments of his songs create a platform for his words, which are sung and rapped without inhibition.

Drawing inspiration from Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, and James Blake, CE is a progressive musician. Majestic, head-bobbing electronic beats can make the small Greenpoint bedroom where he writes/produces feel like a stadium. His lyrics, packed with relatable struggles and anthemic quotables, allow listeners rhythmic access to his complex mind. However, his inherent knowledge of "the classics" remain, making room for his gospel/folk roots to shine - ultimately coating every single song with a crisp, sexy, addictive, heart-wrenching layer of soulful melody.

"My audience is my therapist", says CE. But the reverse is also true; while traveling with him, we travel within ourselves.

Let's explore together.
