Gabby Young continues her non-stop rise up the UK music ladder. A summer filled with festival appearances awaits an artist whose voice has been described by critics as "able to melt marble at 100 paces". An overheard whisper from a gig-goer is an equally effective description. "Damn, that girl can sing!"
Hailing from rural Wiltshire, 25-year-old Gabby Young is a classically trained musician whose staggeringly rich vocal ability has the power to make you feel like you're swimming in velvet. Add a commanding stage presence, a sexy chanteuse ringmaster style that has magazines foaming at the mouth, and a sweetness that simply can't be faked, and you've got a female artist worth clearing room in your calendar for.
'Her shows are some of the most enthralling and energetic experiences I've had at gigs as she sweeps you up into what I'd like to say is a cacophony of folk led, jazz tinged brilliance - but it's much, much more than that.' Will Walder BBC Introducing
And that's before you get to the music. Almost uncategorisable, Gabby's unique perspective on the world around her is inspired as much by her singularly surreal imagination as it is real events - most recently, her courageous survival of throat cancer. Gabby Young and Other Animals offer a slew of stunningly beautiful, often haunting songs that are a genre bending explosion of gypsy folk, pop, rock, jazz, cabaret - and a whole lot of soul.
