After almost a decade of crafting chart-topping hits as a hip-hop producer for the likes of Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Trip Lee, KB and Tedashii, helping shape the sound of Reach Records, he was ready to raise the stakes. This led to him stepping out as a solo artist in 2016 and unleashing two EP’s – Lost in Hue and Holding Hue – the former which hit No. 2 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic charts. The projects reintroduced GAWVI as a force to be reckoned with and singles like “Late Nights” and “In the Water,” which peaked at No. 1 on the Hot CHR Top 40 chart, helped take GAWVI to new audiences.
In March of 2017, GAWVI released his debut album, We Belong, which debuted at No. 7 both on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic and Top Christian Albums chart. His vision is to pioneer EDM music in the CCM industry, redefining the possibilities of pop music and taking it to where it has never gone before.
