Gavin was born as the middle of three children; he has a younger brother and an elder sister, and the kids were raised together at their home. He hated the nature of job his parents did and wished that he never had to do something like that, ever.
So he started practicing to play musical instruments and by the age of 8 could play piano already. He and his brother were both in a local musical group named The People’s Band, along with other lads from around their place.
Gavin Shane DeGraw is an American musician and singer/songwriter who was born on the 4th of February, 1977 and in 2015 his current age is 38 years old.
He was born in South Fallsburg, New York, United States of America, as the son of a detox specialist mother named Lynee and a correctional officer father Wayne DeGraw.
The band performed in local pubs and hotels, but his brother had other ideas and though that he’d better play his songs. He was raised in a religious family, and an American by nationality, belongs to white ethnicity.
Gavin is not a very tall person, as he has got a height of about an 180 cm. That is about 5 feet and 11 inches, not a very great height for a person. He has got a slim and athletic type of body and hasn’t been fat at any point of his life.
He doesn’t work out in the gym but practices yoga to stay healthy. A health conscious person, he also takes care about his eating and sleeping habits. He doesn’t have many pictures on the media, and in those that are, there hasn’t revealed himself by going shirtless.
He hasn’t had a long dating history and has got only one girlfriend till now. He hasn’t been married or divorced at any point in his life; as a result has not got a wife or any children.
Although people thought that the reason behind this was because Gavin was sexually gay, that is not true at all. He has been dating actress Amanda Loncar since 2004 and almost 11 years after, they have still been together; although not married.
He rose to fame after his song “I don’t want to be “, in which he has shown his frustration towards his parents’ job. He has got six different albums till now and has given many hit songs like Not Over You, Chariot, Best I Ever Had, Fire, Follow Through, Soldier, Sweeter, Make a Move and many others.
His music genre is very much appreciated, and his songs have been loved much by his fans through the course of time. As a result, he has been able to tour around and give concerts in many different places.
Apart from singing, he has also played in a couple of TV shows like American Dreams (2002) and Dead Like Me (2003) and thus has gained more fans through his versatility.
