A name and face you may recognize from Netflix’s Sabrina The Teenage Witch remake and Mindy Kaling’s Sex Lives Of College Girls, Gavin Leatherwood began playing the piano and guitar as a teenager, while also honing his craft as an actor. While Gavin may be best known for his acting roles, his budding music career exploded during the COVID-19 global pandemic as film and television productions shut down. Born during lockdown it was just a taste of what was to come as Gavin began to embrace this new musical career.
His latest single, “Be My Lover,” is a vibrant indie-pop cut perfect for summer nights. Speaking on the track, Gavin states:
“When it comes to songwriting my basic instinct is to write songs that are slow in tempo. Melodic, calm, and thought-provoking. When I was working on this record my manager challenged me to write something more upbeat, light, fun, and relatable. On a night out in LA at an exclusive club/restaurant, a very beautiful and very famous woman entered the place and when she did it was like a light went on in the room. Everyone turned their heads with eyes wide and jaws dropped, myself included. My heartbeat quickened and inspiration hit me: ‘When she walks in the room everyone takes notice.‘”
