Biography

A Wiltshire lass, born and bred, 21 year old Gabby Young has just returned to
her roots from a successful tour of the US.

Her unique singing voice was discovered at an early age. Indeed she was one of
the youngest singers to be invited to join the prestigious Nation Youth Choir of
Great Britain.

Her incredible breadth of musical talent encompasses composing, playing many
instruments, being in college choirs, playing in college orchestras, singing in
rock, jazz and funk bands, recording house music for discos in Italy, and
performing operative arias for concerts, weddings and funerals.

After studying at music college in London, Gabby returned to her family home in
Wiltshire and started writing songs. A chance meeting on the internet with an
amazingly talented American musician called Jamie Bright turned everything
around.

He generously gave up his life in the US to live in the UK with Gabby and to
plan a summer US tour together. (The Silent Mind and Gabby Young Who Are They?
Tour) After 6 months gigging in the UK and Europe, they recorded Gabby's debut
album "Free Second Memory" in just a week, before putting on 40 shows in some 25
US states. As a result, Gabby has a huge fan base in the US, and is now going
to embark on her UK Tour, in April 2006.

In October, she was invited to support Al "The Cat" Stewart at three of his UK
gigs, culminating in his 60th Birthday concert in front of 2,000 at the
Barbican. She has now gained a collective of musicians to back her and they are taking London and Wiltshire by storm as 'The Gabby Young Collective'.

This is someone with personality to burn and a great joie de vivre - you will
hear it in her songs. Her voice is an eclectic mix of Janis Joplin, Joan Baez,
Joni Mitchell and Jeff Buckley and Marc Bolan. Her soulful, shimmering voice
is so powerful it will leave you breathless, whilst her starkly original lyrics
conjure up images that will remain long after her show is over.
