Gavin DeGraw

Gavin Shane DeGraw (born February 4, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter and musician. He is probably most well-known for his songs "Chariot", "Follow Through", "I Don't Want to Be" (which is featured as the theme song for the TV drama One Tree Hill), and "In Love with a Girl." DeGraw grew up in the Catskills in South Fallsburg, New York. His father was a prison guard and his mother was a detox specialist, which he mentions in his song "I Don't Want to Be". He is mostly of Russian and Irish ancestry. DeGraw began singing and playing piano at the age of eight. He also has two siblings, both older, named Joey and Neeka. It was at his brother's advice that he began writing his own songs. Joey DeGraw is a musician as well, currently touring to promote his own music. Originally, DeGraw started in Manhattan clubs alongside local pianists Andrew West and Lenny Revell, drawing several of his home town fans.
