Gavin Lockley is a multi-talented singer and musician who studied in Australia, Germany and the United Kingdom before returning home to focus on creating and performing songs and music celebrating Australian history and Australian culture.
Following performances of his song ‘My Country Australia’ in 2005, based on Dorothea McKellar’s iconic poem ‘My Country’, Gavin expanded on it to create a six-movement symphony, Symphony of Australia that premièred at the Sydney Opera House in 2007.
Gavin later composed and recorded Ballads of the Bush — musical renditions of celebrated Australian poems — presented in concert at the City Recital Hall in Sydney in 2009, with a recording under the same title released by ABC Classics that year.
Between 2006 and 2010 Gavin collaborated with the internationally-acclaimed Australian author Colleen McCullough to create a stage musical titled Morgan’s Run – The Musical.
In 2016 Gavin was appointed Inaugural Artistic Director of the Mayfield Garden Music Festival, held at the iconic Mayfield Gardens in Oberon, NSW. Gavin lives with his wife, soprano Renae Martin, and their two children in North Sydney.
