Born in Ghana, and raised between the UK and Canada, artist and songwriter, MAUVEY, defies categorisation with his unique blend of influences spanning Afro, pop, hip-hop, cinematic, rock, punk, alternative, and electronic genres. Drawing inspiration from iconic figures like Michael Jackson, Prince, Kanye West, Coldplay, Burna Boy, FKA TWIGS, and Labrinth, MAUVEY's sound is unmistakably his own, transcending traditional boundaries.

MAUVEY kicks off 2024 with the release of a remix project due this Spring ‘BEFORE THE ALBUM 2.5: THE REMIX’ teaming up with Juno-award winning and nominated producers including Teen Daze, Junia T and 4Korners. Recognised as one of Shell Zenner’s 2024 Tips of the Year, MAUVEY is set to perform at SXSW with plans for a summer festival line-up spanning the UK, Canada, and Asia.

In 2023, MAUVEY captivated audiences with a headline performance at Isle of Wight Festival, as well as slots at Glastonbury, SXSW, New Colossus New York, Focus Wales, Capitol Hill Block Party Seattle, Treefort Festival, Big Sound Australia, and Music Matters Singapore.
