Reade Gauvin is a vocalist, pianist, and songwriter from Moncton, New Brunswick. A recent graduate of Moncton Christian Academy, she is currently studying Music Performance at Holland College. Her songwriting style is similar to that of Ron Sexsmith, in that it is introspective, folky and often romantic. Her vocal style is heavily influenced by that of Nat King Cole, as she is a natural crooner. She is currently studying the vocal techniques of heavier styles, and is taking influence from Chris Cornell.
Reade is most inspired to create when she has long, meaningful conversations with those she loves dearly, or those of whom she thinks are intriguing characters. Her audience is captivated by her works, because through her unique perspective of universally human experiences, she can find the words to say something that’s been said a million times in a way it’s never been said before. This is the reason why she was chosen to perform at the Empress theatre in Moncton, as part of Music NB’s “deBut Stage Competition” for young songwriters/performers in 2017. In 2021, she was chosen to receive the Jane Leblanc Legacy Fund, for Music. She continues to write, and will always happily perform, when given the opportunity.
