Mauvey “is unbound by genre, identifying with punk, electronic, and everything in between — and  Before the Album 2: A Brief Overview is no exception with its mixed bag of music.” – Exclaim! 

Born in Ghana and based in Vancouver, alt-pop up-and-comer MAUVEY’s work has garnered critical acclaim from around the world. With influences of rock, punk, alternative, and electronic, Mauvey cites influences such as Michael Jackson, Future Islands, Prince, Coldplay, FKA, TWIGS, or Labrinth, but has a sound uniquely his own. He has recently owned sets at Other Voices, Reeperbahn, SXSW, The Great Escape, BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Boomtown, Isle of Wight Festival, School Night LA and TOR, and tour support slots alongside Dear Rouge, easy life, and Snotty Nose Rez Kids. MAUVEY was named on Why Now’s Ones To Watch List for 2023.The fast-rising star now prepares a new EP, Before The Album 2 (featuring a collaboration with electro-pop hitmaker Lights), and is due to release in late 2023. After opening for July Talk’s 2023 USA tour, he now brings a loaded summer festival schedule to North America and Europe, including a stop at TD JazzFest 2023!
