Steven 'G-Legend' Gaman
Thames View resident since 2009
Resident Steering Group Member of Thames Ward Community Project and Member of the TWCP Arts & Culture Citizen Action Group
Steven is a professional musician and producer who has his own production team and Record Label (Legend City) and has played with the likes of Rihanna, Ghetts, Kwabs, Rita Ora, Conor Maynard, Stormzy, Cody Chesnutt and regularly tours with Little Simz.
He is passionate about providing talented young local musicians with the opportunity to express themselves creatively and be able to help nurture and showcase their musical talents. He plans to run a series of masterclasses with talented drummers in the area and blaze a trail for their future success by sharing the blueprint of how to go global and perform on the biggest stages worldwide, as he does. Having lived in the area for over 10 years and excelled in his music at such a young age he is uniquely positioned to support and mentor young people with similar ambitions given the opportunity and the facilities needed to do so.
Steven’s goal for Thames Ward is to create a music studio in the local area where young people can attend workshops, learn about the music industry and record their own tracks supported by local musicians to help create opportunities and build lasting relationships between different generations of Thames View and Barking Riverside residents
