Biography

Meet Gabby Young, the most entertaining soul on the circus scene. With a live following most independent singers would chop out a lung for, Ms. Young’s effervescent reputation continues to precede her – which conveniently for our beloved belle has calumniated in 15 major UK festival bookings this year...and counting.
With her 8-deep band of merry cohorts - comprising wind, brass and percussion sections, Gabby's exuberant reckless and yell-a-long live shows have hastily whipped up an impressive following both online and offline. With the re-release of her debut album – including bonus tracks and remixes; Gabby now invites you to draw your own conclusions, have a listen to the album and come see what all the fuss is about at her many festival appearances this year. Gabby didn't invent burlesque, Top Hats, Dickensian decadence, circuses or art deco, but what she did do, is grab these and other influences by the delicates, shoved them in a blender, added a healthy dose of unique eccentricity and out popped the most unpredictable and delicious musical smoothie you've ever been party to!
To tred placidly amongst the noise and draw heed to Gabby's unique songwriting ability, this album’s heartfelt lyrics and other-worldly insight would awaken the most derelict of hearts. Whispered fairytale prose intertwines with rambunctious just-for-the-sake-of-it-opulence on this fairground of an album, and offers the listener just a peek in to Gabby Young’s ever-occupied mind.
Gabby's show-stopping vocals have provoked comparisons with everybody from Bjork to Brian Blessed! Yes, the girl can sing. But don’t take our word for it; Gabby was the youngest ever singer invited to join the National Youth Choir of Great Britain. Furthermore, when the legendary Al Stewart saw her performing at a bar, he wasted no time in inviting her to support him on his North American tour last year.The title track from the album “We’re all in this together” is released September 6th 2010 with the album released September 13th 2010 in the UK. The European release and tour will follow in 2011.
If you are anywhere near a muddy field with a stage on it this summer, listen out for a swashbuckling burlesque-tinged hoe-down and get yourself amongst it. It’ll be Gabby and Co wailing their hearts out for your sumptuous cider-fuelled delight. You’ll have fun...
