I've always never thought my real name sounded like a musicians name....well maybe a country musicians name. I've been using just Gavin K just for now but I need a better stage name. My real name is Gavin Knowles so thats why I used Gavin K some names I have considered... Gavin Johanson (using my mother maiden name) Gavin Erskine (using my middle name) thats all I got. only thing my parents would be devastated if I changed my last name. I don't have any nick names to chose from. I guess I'm just plain all boring. also I feel a stage name should reflect a musicians style or genre. I've studied jazz but I play mostly rock.
