"A born showman... Creel's ultra hip stage presence and sleek sexiness barely contain the kind of star quality that other singers can only dream of possessing. His ‘watchability’ factor is stratospheric!” -Show Business Weekly
Unlike many manufactured, pre-fab music acts today, Gavin Creel is a multi-faceted performer who is forging a unique path and steadily carving out his own place in the entertainment industry.
Creel was raised in a small city in Ohio and spent his childhood studying classical music, while obsessively listening to Top 40 radio. He developed a bizarre roster of childhood musical heroes that included Billy Joel, George Michael, and Harry Connick Jr. After graduating from high school, he took his passion for music and performing to the University of Michigan where he majored in musical theatre. During his collegiate years, with sights set firmly on the New York stage, Creel started writing and creating his own sound that combined his love for pop music with the emotional energy of the theatre.
Once he hit New York City, Creel broke out with a Best Actor Tony nomination for his Broadway debut in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE. Since then, he has solidified his reputation as one of the business’ top young performers, starring in such productions as the Off-Broadway cult hit, BAT BOY, the world premiere of Stephen Sondheim’s BOUNCE, and most recently, the Tony Award winning revival of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES. In tandem with his success as an actor, Creel has thrilled sold-out crowds with his original pop music at venues all across New York, such as Irving Plaza, Joe’s Pub, and Arlene’s Grocery.
"Proving he’s just as versatile singing pop music as he is theatre, Creel’s sexy, unvarnished tenor resonates perfectly on his excellent original material…making him a face and a talent to watch.” -NEXT
Creel collaborated on GOODTIMENATION with Producer/Co-Writer, Robbie Roth. Creel proclaims that this is not, “your typical, generic pop album.”
“When Robbie and I met, I told him that I want people to feel alive when they hear my music. I want them to feel good. I’m tired of all the angry stuff out there. I’m sick of people putting boxes around everyone, telling you where and how you have to fit in. I don’t want to fit in. I want to make music that can reach out to people of all different ages and backgrounds and beliefs and turn us into one, groovin, GOODTIMENATION.”
