Gavin McLeod is a twenty-year-old singer, songwriter, and guitar player from Milton Ontario, Canada. Making YouTube videos at an early age, Gavin amassed an online following of over one-hundred-thousand subscribers, gaining over eighteen million views on his music and skateboard related content. Now with over a decade of performing under his belt, Gavin has spent nearly half of his life working towards a modern blend of blues and rock music.
In 2019 the young “blues phenom” (Toronto Blues Society) released his first project "The Hollow EP" and represented Canadian youth at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. His showcase at the Toronto Blues Summit 9 then led the young musician to a Summer of festival debuts including Ottawa Bluesfest, Tremblant International Blues Festival, Sound of Music Festival, the Kitchener Blues Festival main stage as well as a debut set at the Horseshoe Tavern in support of Ariel Posen. While continuing to make YouTube videos, Gavin’s more recent focus on music has led him to appearances on two seasons of Family Channel's TV show Backstage and work with Eastwood and Rivolta guitars in Nashville and Chicago. Alongside attending Ryerson University for business, Gavin is currently in the process of making his next record and hopes he can bring an appreciation of guitar music back to a younger audience.
