Rex Garvin was the leader of the Mighty Cravers. He was born in Harlem in 1940 and raised by foster parents in a religious family. When he was just 8 years old, his mother, Magareth Garvin, arranged for him to take piano lessons. He began writing music when he was 15 and got involved with Zelma Sanders, her myriad of labels as well as her group The Hearts. An experience on the night of December 28th 1985 made him stop craving music and he hasn’t played since.
