Gavyn Bailey is a singer and songwriter known for his quirky, commercial style, and deep soul mentality, with a writing maturity well beyond his young age. He's been music-minded ever since the age of three, while recovering from a kidney transplant, he taught himself many instruments and worked on honing his love for songwriting - an outlet that has gained global attention.

In 2013, Gavyn released his debut EP "Sickly in Love which landed #4 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts. That same year he was nominated for an OC Music Award for Best Youth Artist as well as LA Music Awards for Best Album and Male Singer/Songwriter of the year.

Since 2016, Gavyn put his focus into songwriting for himself as well as other artists when he signed a publishing deal with Bump Into Genius and Warner/Chappell Music. He has since collaborated with artists including Ray Dalton, Tim Schou, Xenia ("The Voice"), Karen Dezelle, MOODY, Romeo Blanco, Soren Bryce, Dylan Jordan, and SVEA, among others, and has accumulated a diverse song catalogue.

"Gavyn Bailey is not a fabricated product. He has a story that inspires his music. Gavyn was born with kidney failure and needed a transplant when he was 3. A decade later, he is en route to fulfill his dream of becoming a singer and open a charity for kids with the same condition he confronted. But you wouldn't guess any of that from his stage presence."-February 14, 2012 in Live Reviews by Angelo Florendo
Gavyn's is a compelling story because it speaks to the sustaining and inspirational power of music. As mentioned in a CBS article: "Even before Gavyn could formulate words music was medicine."
