After a few attempts at getting in touch with Gavin Smiley (he has a hilarious voicemail message involving Christopher Walken), we finally got him on the phone and asked him a few questions. We're pretty impressed with Gavin. He plays a ton of instruments, learned everything by ear, and is an all-around nice guy.

Bravotv.com: We haven't seen a whole lot of you this season, Gavin. What have you been up to?
Gavin: I know. I've been writing a lot of music. I've been working with Jo a little bit. Not as much as before, but she's still bugging me to write her a song.

Bravotv.com: Won G and Bob call you out in the living room as talented. What was that like?
Gavin: It was kind of unreal, actually. It was very sudden. I didn't know who they were. I was just told that Bob was coming over, and my dad dropped some names about who he's produced in the past. But I knew they were going to be focused on what Jo was doing. But it was really cool. It was the first time it ever happened to me.

Bravotv.com: We've been hearing a lot about your MySpace page, actually.
Gavin: Oh yeah. All I have on there right now is a live recording from a solo concert I had here at my school, last week. But I'm in the process of recording a couple of covers of songs. And as soon as I finish those, they'll go right up there. It's a good way for people to hear things.

Bravotv.com: We hear a lot of "those kids in Orange County are awfully spoiled..." What's your take on that?
Gavin: Well, it kinda depends. In my case, I would say — I'm not going to say I'm not spoiled. My dad hooked me up with the whole mirophone and recording software. For the most part, I try to buy everythiung with my own money. My dad doesn't lend me a whole lot. At the same time, I'm not going to say that about the rest of Coto. There are, yeah, a few spoiled ones. And maybe the majority. But I wouldn't say that they're spoiled "brats."

Bravotv.com: Kara Keough said that, actually, "I know I'm spoiled, but I'm not rotten."
Gavin: Exactly. And she's not at all. She gets perceived that way, but when you know her, you know she's actually really great.

Bravotv.com: Do you all go to the same high school?
Gavin: Mostly. Kara goes here. Colton now goes here. Josh used to. Lindsey used to, but I think she's home-schooled.

Bravotv.com: Are you dating anyone?
Gavin: I am, yes. Her name is Taylor.

Bravotv.com: Gavin, please keep us posted as to what you're doing. We're big fans of yours.
Gavin: Well, thanks. Thanks for calling.
