Gavin McLeod Brings Indie Rock Fusion with New Single “Things We Used To Do”


Emerging Indie Rock artist Gavin McLeod is shaking up the music scene with his latest single, “Things We Used To Do.” 

At only 24 years old, Gavin, who hails from Milton, Ontario, has been forging his own path in the music world from a young age. Taking inspiration from legends like Neil Young and modern giants like The Killers, Gavin’s music strikes a unique balance between introspective storytelling and electrifying anthems.

The new single Things We Used To Do” is a fascinating tale of collaboration and creativity in the studio. Through experimentation and teamwork, Gavin and his bandmates have created crafted a sound that blends soulful vocals, lively guitars, and pulsating rhythms. The song explores themes of nostalgia and moving on from past love.

“Things We Used To Do” was one of the first songs that we wrote for the new album. It was a song that had existed for a long time in many different forms, but never really worked until we tried it in the studio. 

When my guitar player Patrick suggested a chord change, we all immediately felt like the code had been cracked, and we tracked the final version within a few takes. It was a real team effort getting this one across the finish line. Through all the many changes, the main riff that opens the song always remained from the conception of the song up until the final master.”

Produced by the acclaimed Ross Hayes Citrullo, both the new single and Gavin’s upcoming debut album, “The Constant Astonishment,” is poised to be a milestone in his career. 

The new album was recorded live “off the floor” and captures the raw energy of McLeod’s live performances, demonstrating a tight chemistry between Gavin and his band. 

Gavin McLeod began his musical career with captivating content on YouTube and quickly amassed a dedicated fan base and millions of views. His blues-infused sound coupled with dynamic stage presence have earned him acclaim at prestigious music festivals, further solidifying his place in the indie rock scene. 

With over a decade of music under his belt already, Gavin along with his talented bandmates, has devoted himself to creating a unique and soulful indie rock sound. 

The debut project “The Hollow” EP which was released in 2019 earned Gavin recognition as a “blues phenom” from the Toronto Blues Society. 


In recent years, Gavin’s electrifying performance at the Toronto Blues Summit 9 propelled him into a summer packed with prestigious festival appearances.

From the Ottawa Bluesfest to the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival, Tremblant International Blues Festival, Burlington Sound of Music Festival, and headlining the main stage at the Kitchener Blues Festival, Gavin’s star continues to ascend.

Now with the production of the upcoming album “The Constant Astonishment,” Gavin and his band are utilising their deep-rooted blues expertise to embark on a transition to a melodic, roots-influenced indie rock sound reminiscent of Inhaler and Sam Fender.
