Drums & Vocals

A drummer who packs a punch, but who firmly believes in playing for the song, Gavin Richardson mans the engine room of Colvex with passion.

Having first met Simon when forming The Secrets back in 1994, the two have struck up an enduring musical partnership that continues to flourish, so it was natural that he jumped at the chance to get behind the kit when Simon invited him to join Colvex in 2001.

A prolific songwriter in his own right, Gav lauched his own site Ultrasoundz.com in 2003 to showcase his extra curricular material, and has had success with his work placed in TV soundtracks. In recent years, Gav has also taken on extra-curricular duties as drummer for successful Hertfordshire-based covers band Six Go Mad.

With a keen sense of the importance of the band's presentation, Gav is also Colvex's self-appointed manager, ensuring the group controls it’s own destiny.
