Gavin Arnold, known professionally as Littlehawk, is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter from Perth, Australia. His music traverses pop, rock, electronic and folk in his debut album 'Chinchilla'.
After over 10 years performing as bass guitarist and keyboardist with Simon Kelly and Toby Beard – including multiple Australian, European and Canadian tours – Gavin decided to pursue his own music, encouraged by a finalist nomination in APRA TropScore and semi-finalist in the Song of the Year contest.
Gavin began his solo project Littlehawk in November 2017 and has already performed at a variety of live music venues in Perth. Most notably, at the Yagan Square opening in the Perth CBD and the State Theatre Courtyard, including live performances on ABC Perth radio, Twin Cities FM and RTR's 'Breakfast with Caitlin'. Tracks from his album have also been played on Double J, Mix 94.5 and community radio stations across the country.
'Chinchilla' charts the personal journey of the songwriter over the past ten years – with themes of love, hope, imagination, melancholy and reflection – and its release coincided with the birth of his first baby.
