The day after Gavin Knox-Grant was born; he was on the front page of the Star, a leading newspaper in South Africa. His parents were icons of the golden age of South African television. Dorianne Berry and Robin Knox-Grant were household names.

Gavin started piano lessons at six, and picked up the trumpet at nine. By fifteen he was working in small jazz bands, and performing in some high profile theatre productions. He went on to study Jazz formally at the University of Cape Town, and by 19 was a full time trumpet player called in to play everything from Opera and Classical, to Blues Jazz and Dance music.
