“A 28-year-old West Coast native whose melodies sound like they’ve been steeped in the ashes of Studio 54 since its closure, Turek produces songs that’d fit right in at roller discos on the outskirts of Coney Island (the non-ironic kind). If that’s enough of a selling point, try this: She possesses the silky, arms-outstretched harmonizing of an in-her-prime Donna Summer.” – via SPIN
Gavin Turek’s silky smooth vocals, matched with catchy pop-disco rhythms, and energetic on-stage performance make her a must-see artist.

Her artfully reverent interpretation of the songs that inspire her put the perfect spin on the reggae sounds we love.
