Gaby K – “The Good, The Bad & The Boring” EP + Exclusive Interview

1. Hello, thank you for your time, please introduce yourself in a few words!

Hey, my name is Gaby K, I am a soul/pop singer/songwriter from Birmingham. I have grown up around music, with my mum constantly played R&B in the house, and introduced me to artists such as Aretha Franklin, and my dad introduced me to artists such as Led Zeppelin. I have been writing songs since the age of 12 and in the last few years I have been performing my own songs as well as experimenting with my sound in the studio.

2. Please give us an update about – new single, new album, tour dates, new videos?!

Well recently I released my first ever EP, which was the biggest project to date. I have already started working on new music and can’t wait to get more out there.

3. Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?!

  • When I write songs, it’s not just about my experiences but also others around me.
  • I started playing the piano at the age of 12.
  • Having a connection with my audience is something I really value as an artist.
  • Before I perform I will always have my traditional gin & soda to get me pumped.
  • When I write songs I know it’s going to be a good one when I finish writing it within 10 minutes.

4. What fashion style or brand would best describe your music?

I feel like my music doesn’t have a particular ‘fashion’ style, as the sound of each song varies, therefore the fashion would vary.

5. Tell us more about your songs! Topics! Message!?

My songs are all based on experiences. I like to write about my different relationships and also the people around me and their relationships. I like to help friends express their feelings through writing songs about them. A lot of my songs is from one woman to another, my aim is to empower those around me.

6. Beside music, do you have any special talents?

I make the best cheesy beans on toast you’ll ever taste (don’t ever forget the pepper).

7. Being on stage feels like….

It is like being in a pitch black room with no sound and then all of a sudden, it all hits you at once, almost like a sensory overload. It’s like it elevates you to another level.

8. How did you learn to sing/ to write/ to play??

I don’t think I ever really learned how to sing. I just enjoyed singing and realised I wasn’t half bad and went from there really. I wrote alongside playing the piano, my mum made me and my siblings play an instrument, so I chose piano and that helped with the writing process.

9. A question you’d like to answer, but never been asked in an interview before?! + Answer pls

What advice would you give to other up and coming artists?

You will question every song, decision, choice, within music and that’s okay, just don’t allow it to stop you doing what you do best.
