Upon first listening to Stuart Mavis' fetching pop songs, you might not think that his musical hero is none other than Kendrick Lamar. Keep listening, however, and you'll notice that the Dutch songwriter isn't afraid of crossing boundaries between folk, pop and hip hop. He blurs the lines with danceable hooks, dark, ingenious lyrics — and an important supporting role for the trumpet.
He’s performed international showcases with his band at Eurosonic for three years in a row.
Previously he’s performed at several Liberation Day concerts, Oerol, Noorderzon, and many more. He performed numerous times at national radio (Radio 538, 3FM and Radio 1).
In 2013 he’s opened for the Babysitter Circus in his hometown, Groningen. Later on he’s opened for Moss and Tula.
In 2014 he’s released two singles: Different Generations and The Gang, both of which recieved airplay at 3FM. Early 2015 he’s released an acoustic mini-EP (Soy Milk), on which he reveals his darker and more melancholic self.
More recently he’s released a stunning livesession performing ‘Ocean’ with his band at the Pelican Sessions. ‘Ocean’ is a featured track on Stuart Mavis’ upcoming debut EP (2016), on which he will explore a darker and more melancholic sound.
