A highly energised and articulate emotional wreck on stage,

Mauvey’s raison d’être is to create and generate love, both on and off stage. «My message will always be Love» says Mauvey, who has designed his projects of Love through his creative narratives which use intentional songwriting, intelligent melody, and hypnotic beat. «My mission is to distribute Love, and there’s no better way to do that than through music».

Born in Ghana, West Africa, Mauvey grew up in the UK and Vancouver, Canada. An artist, performer and songwriter, Mauvey creates his own unique sound and style of alternative pop music, with reflective influences of Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Oumou Sangaré, Prince, Childish Gambino and Labrinth.

In Spring 2021, Mauvey proudly signed with the fiercely independent label, 604 Records. After three double single releases, Mauvey’s Mixtape «The Florist» dropped in December 2021. The tracks have been receiving tremendous praise from worldwide press, radio, music fans and industry alike.

The project has been championed by BBC Introducing on Radio 1, Exclaim!, Range Magazine and climbing on Earshot, NACC’s Top 200 and Electronic Radio Charts. Mauvey has taken stages with a vengeance including performances at SXSW, support slots for easy life and Snotty Nose Rez Kids, BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend & Isle of Wight Festival, a 20 date UK headline Tour, plus showcase sets at M for Montreal and Focus Wales.

Mauvey’s latest single, «The King», is an empowering alt-pop anthem that floods listeners with melodic lyricism, razor-sharp production and mesmerising bass and drums. Mauvey shares, “Throughout history ‘Kings’ (men) have been the most important people, the most protected people and the most respected people. I wanted to write a song tearing that apart. ‘The King’ is a redistribution of power and respect to everyone, especially the immensely powerful women we have in our world». Stay tuned for the debut full length album coming in Fall 2022.
