Biography

Gav was born and raised in Townsville in tropical North Queensland and started playing an instrument early in life.

At 8 years old he was given his first guitar, at 13 he was taught by his primary school teacher who was a guitarist, and at 17 he was playing in a Garage Band. By the time he was 18, he was performing live on Magnetic Island.

For many years he performed at bars, parties and events, playing lead guitar, rhythm, bass, and on vocals, in numerous original and rock cover bands.

After 20 years in Tasmania, in 2013 Gav returned to his home state. For the first two years, he performed with Sharni as a duo, until the middle of 2017 they launched Genexis on the Sunshine Coast.

In March 2019 he returned to Magnetic Island where he presently performs with Sharni as a duo.

Gav on vocals displays the emotion of the original, and fluently replicates guitar licks and solos.  He creatively turns a somewhat boring guitar solo into an electrifying performance, and gives his guitar a serious workout!
