Mauvey has been influenced by artists like Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Oumou Sangaré, Prince, Childish Gambino, Labrinth, NAO, The Weeknd, and Andre 3000, as he goes on to state: "I am inspired by artists who made contributions so significant that they or their music will never be forgotten”.
A passionate Mauvey says, "If my entire music career is a giant book about the rigours of Love, the ups, the downs, the highs and the complicated lows, I'd have done my job of distributing Love", he goes on to say, "I want to be clear about what I'm talking, singing and rapping about - no games - I don't know everything, but I know that Love is everything, there's no better subject.”
This Spring 2021, Mauvey proudly signed with the fiercely independent Canadian label, 604 Records.
Mauvey has been well supported by Huw Stephens and Gemma Bradley’s BBC Music Introducing on Radio 1, including being Mercury Prize nominee Georgia’s ‘pick’. In May 2021, Mauvey took part in BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend performing his track ‘Pillow’ live with artist and friend, Lloren. Mauvey has gained backing from Jamz Supernova on Selector Radio (British Arts Council). In Summer 2020, Mauvey was awarded by the MOBO Help Musicians Fund.

Mauvey's powerful lyrical content is unashamed, he isn't perfect, and he's not trying to be. Love is his mission, not just words in songs. The themes are not always black and white, at times, they’re a bit Mauvey.

BRUCH's music is powered by the fight for our planet and the state of socio-political affairs. Sometimes, music can reach further than mere spoken words. If more awareness can be spread through word or music, greater understanding can fuel the movement to protect our earth.
BRUCH’s upcoming single, 'Swear', discusses the abusive relationship between man and the natural world, and the dangers of our imbalanced dependency.
'Reasoning' was chosen from over 200 tracks by BBC Radio 6Music’s Tom Robinson and his Fresh on the Net Team, and aired on the BBC Introducing Mixtape.
Due to COVID-19, BRUCH's UK Festival calendar has been cancelled. In lieu of this, BRUCH will appear LIVE on the online festival circuit - follow @bruchmusic on socials for updates.
