He has two older siblings, a sister Neeka and a brother, Joey , also a musician.
Growing up in a musical family, he was raised to regard music as part of the fabric of everyday life rather than a remote show-business ideal. Steven Levine on vocals, as well as his brother, Joey. The band played many of the local hotels and clubs around the Monticello area.
It was at his brother's advice that he began writing his own songs. He then moved to Boston , where he attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music for two semesters, while singing in a rock band and playing solo gigs on the side. Those tiny bits of recognition were fuel for me to continue, and made me feel like I was on the right track. After wowing the audience, the next day the night manager and talent coordinator Shar Thompson introduced Degraw to the club's owner, Debbie Wilson.
Wilson signed on as his manager and almost immediately, word of the talented newcomer began to spread through New York's music community, and the quality of his performances lived up to the buzz. Rather than succumb to the obvious temptation, he chose to decline the offer and continue his development as a songwriter and performer, while paying the rent by working as a waiter and newsstand clerk.
The album's depth and focus attest to Gavin's clear vision of his identity as an artist. I didn't want to have too much glitter on me.
It's a real process to get to the point where it doesn't sound like it's a process.
We really worked at making it breathe. He released his debut album, Chariot , on July 22, , under J Records.
The album featured three of DeGraw's singles: DeGraw included some songs on the album that he wrote very early in his career and that have evolved over time, songs such as "Dancing Shoes" and "Glass". DeGraw went on to release an acoustic album based mostly on songs from Sweeter.
The iTunes Session album features seven tracks and a minute interview.
