Gavlyn is a female rapper who has been rapping seriously since 1996. She says she’s inspired by old school’s funk and spoken word. Even though she loves hip hop she says that hip-hop is not her only choice of music to listen to, she is also into alternative rock, old school drum and bass,j ungle, and is also a huge fan of house music, but cant stand trance music. Following the overwhelmingly positive feedback from her first mix tape release “Habit That You Blame”, Gavlyn would sign with the Broken Complex Records Label to release her first full length album “From the Art” in October 2012, with the video for the single “What I Do” receiving over 4 million views on YouTube so far.
We took a listen to Gavlyn for the first time just two days ago and was impressed with what she had to say on the mic. She doesn’t sound like any other female rapper which is a good thing; she has her own style and her flow is on point. We’ll definitely look out for her as her career progresses and will keep you posted on any projects she has coming out in the near future. If you like her sound support her and the music she releases. The 25 -year-old L.A.-based rapper GAVLYN is fresh off her 6th international tour sharing stages with the likes of Wutang Clan, Schoolboy Q, Big Sean, Steve Aoki and many more. She’s signed to indie label Broken Complex which supports artists on an international scale and aims to give Hip Hop music a fresh, poetic and timeless touch.
GAVLYN’s music is inspired by Old School, 70’s Funk and 60’s music. Yet, despite her devotion to Hip Hop, it’s not her only source of inspiration. Cit: “It’s important for the music to be open-minded and not to limit oneself “.. GAVLYN is one-of-a-kind. Even if her Beats sound fresh from the 90’s, with modern accents, her unique voice, her authentic vibe, and direct air make her a rare artist on the scene. She’s released 4 albums with Broken Complex and her track What I Do has been played 7 million times on YouTube.
