Hailing from the sleepy suburbia of south-east Melbourne, Karvesh Pillai, known as Kavi, is a singer and songwriter with a knack for turning sad stories into catchy pop tunes.
When he’s not behind a camera or dashing between his day job and a host of other creative side gigs, the 21 year old newcomer channels his thoughts on friendship, love and growing pain induced frustration into lyrics that weave raw honesty between vivid imagery. Citing Lorde, The Weeknd, E^ST and Halsey as sonic influences, Kavi’s emotion-laden vocals rise out of a soundscape built upon hip-hop inspired beats.
December 2018 saw Kavi make his debut with a Soundcloud upload of his EP entitled ‘train tracks and bad dreams’. The 6 track project was the culmination of months of navigating broken friendships while making the leap from teenage nonchalance to the relative gravity of adulthood. The EP quickly caught the attention of audiences across Australia and the US, leading to a jump into the literal spotlight as the opening act for electronic-pop duo LouSkylar at their Melbourne launch party in February 2019.
With features on several tracks, as well as a sparkling new EP in the works, 2019 is set to be a big year for the wannabe popstar making little splashes.
