GIVEON infuses Rat Pack-style classiness into modern R&B. Developing his own baritone delivery, he caught the attention of another Long Beach local and multiplatinum singer and songwriter AUGUST 08 [DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber] who served as an initial mentor. In 2018, GIVEON independently made his debut with “Garden Kisses” and “Fields.”
A year later, he joined forces with producer Sevn Thomas [Drake, Rihanna, Travis Scott] and further honed a signature style of his own. In 2019, he also performed “Giveon Unplugged” to a packed crowd at Soho House in addition to leading a songwriting camp sponsored by Remy Martin and Asics alongside top producers and songwriters such as boi-1da, Jahaan Sweet, Sevn Thomas, WondaGurl, Charlie Handsome, and more. Afterwards Snoh Aalegra personally invited him on her headline tour.
Giveon’s vocals, which have already provided him with a banner moment in 2020 singing the hook on Drake’s “Chicago Freestyle,” are a force to be reckoned with.
His debut EP Take Time was released in March 2020 and has received widespread acclaim from fans and critics alike including Billboard, Elle, V Man, Teen VOGUE, Hypebeast, and more. The project has amassed 20M + US streams across Spotify platforms since its release and his rapidly-expanding fanbase is already clamoring for a follow-up project across social media. With more music on the horizon, Giveon ignites a new era for his hometown and a sound unlike anything out there.
