Nothing else for him will do, well some other stuff he does is pretty good fun too (try googling Gavin Mart) but without his song writing routines and stunningly passionate performances, Gavin's life would simply not be the same. Gavin mart's music is without doubt politically driven through its core, with a hint of dreamy wistfulness and idealism to set the scene, there's a wry sense of displacement and a longing for justice in most of his writing. Dramatic yearnings such as ‘Patiently’ may one day find themselves re-inspiring a generation to vote for change, whilst the gentle simplicities of ‘Spanish Eyes’ acoustically demonstrate a courageous confidence in the power of the honest love song. Musically able and culturally aware, Gavin Mart and his team of cut throat muso’s, ‘The Saturday Vandals’, avidly gig regularly throughout the year. The local haunts of the Leeds acoustic scene are amongst regular pit stops, whilst a flare for festival invitations and garden party appearances seems to have become quite the norm.
With a challenging stage presence and call to duty, Gavin Mart and The Saturday Vandals are quite a match for an unsuspecting audience and heavy hitting headliners alike. His debut EP ‘Progress’ proves his capabilities and stands bravely for the communities he respectfully represents. Songs of the inner city perils and poverty traps balance calmly with the education his extensive travels to developing worlds have gained him. There’s a depth of character lying just under the surface, which comes only from a life of adventure and mischievous longing for equality... take a listen and jump on the ride! Read more on Last.fm.
