About KAV

“KAV combines the speed of The Scream with the swagger of The Stones” The Guardian. "The album’s scuzzy fuzz-bombs find the sonic midpoint between Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Kasabian... the world as viewed through the smudged lens of somebody who’s kicked up years of dust" BUZZ BANDS LA KAV is a solo artist backed by his full live band. Originally from Leicester UK, he is based in Los Angeles via London. KAV's debut album “The Man With No Shadow” was released in August 2014 & was well received on US College Radio making it into the Top 30 College Charts, with tracks also being played on major commercial stations such as KROQ, KEGR & KDHX. KROQ drive-time DJ Ted Stryker made Blaggers N' Liars his “4.20" pick twice in 2014, with support also coming from legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingemheimer. KAV’s first single of 2014 “Dance in a Panic” had its first spin on US Radio from tastemaker Nic Harcourt on KCSN.

KAV recently launched “Dance in a Panic” club nights in Los Angeles, featuring some his favourite artists & DJ’s. The club-night will see a big launch in April 2015 as part of BRITWEEK. “Free Spirit'; a powerful three-minute joy-ride”… “A rollercoaster of emotions & electricity courses through KAV’s The Man With No Shadow, making this possibly one of the strongest album releases of 2014. It won’t be long until KAV has the world in the palm of his hand. Watch this space, The Man With No Shadow is coming”. GIGSLUTZ 'KAV is one of those one in a million artists that just exudes talent...
