Gavin Loughlin is a multi-instrumentalist from the North of England, a music-maker and writer of the greatest songs you've never heard. You can sometimes find him busking in Leeds, or playing at one of the many open mic nights around the West Yorkshire area. He wears a silly hat to disguise his rubbish haircut, and often lets his beard grow too long.


Gavin's music has been featured on local and national radio stations including: BBC 6 Music, BBC York, BBC Leeds, Leeds Indie Radio, Drystone Radio, and he has played a number of shows for the BBC.


In 2014, one of Gavin's musical side projects, the Dark Blue 2 EP, was added to an exhibition at The Museum Wlodzimierza Wysockiego (Vladimir Vysotsky Museum) in Poland.
