GET TO KNOW: Pavy



Following on from the release of his much-loved EP 'The Chicago' last year, LA-based artist Pavy is looking to continue his vibrant ascent with his captivating new studio album 'The Batchelor'.


Featuring the previously shared efforts 'Being Single Is Complicated', 'Whatever', and 'Love It For Yourself', this new nine-track collection makes for a wonderfully warm and inviting listen. Filled with rich and alluring textures, a sweeping atmosphere, and his own breezy vocals at the helm, 'The Batchelor' cements him as one of the more passionate names doing the rounds right now.


So with the new album available to stream now, we sat down with him to find out more about his origins and influences over the years.



What was the first band or artist you fell in love with?


The first artist that I remember consciously liking was 50 Cent. He came out when I was 12 & that was the first artist that I picked that I liked. I don’t know why, but I felt I could draw parallels from my life to his. He grew up with his Grandmother, and so did I. He was an only child, so am I. His mother wasn’t able to physically be in his life. I can also relate to that. And last but not least, “Get Rich Or Die Tryin” is one of the best albums ever.


Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?


I didn’t have a band when I was younger. Low key, I’ve always wanted to do something like that, but I haven’t had that chance yet.


What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?


My primary inspiration for writing music, as cliche as it may sound, is just my actual life. I get a kick out of turning my real-life experiences into songs. I wish I had some long drawn out explanation for you, but it’s as simple as that.


What is a song you wish you had written yourself?


I wish I could’ve written Sade’s “Sweetest Taboo”. That’s a perfect record, in my opinion.


If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?


I don’t know if there’s a specific moment but maybe the period of 2012-2014. I’d love to appreciate the hip-hop community that I was a part of. I probably took it for granted, and that’s something I would love to experience again—just a community of underground artists all striving for the same things.


Which artist would you most love to share a stage with?


Drake.


And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?


Again, Drake.


Where do you see yourself in five years time?


I don’t know specifically but hopefully, in 5 years, I’m happy & still making the music I want to make. And most importantly, I hope I’m still having fun with it all. I feel like that’s the most important thing. Having fun with the music you’re creating.
