Young’s twisting roots have carried her and that stunning voice from her native Wiltshire around the UK to land with a big bang at the centre of London' s music scene. The youngest recruit to the National Youth Choir at the age of 12, Gabby was on track to become an opera singer until Jeff Buckley and the Jazz greats inspired her to switch teams. When thyroid cancer threatened to take her classically trained voice at the age of 22, she got serious about recording her stories. Using her recovery time to pen her melodies Gabby took in global influences to fuel her heartfelt emotion which shines through her beautifully haunting songs.
Gabby’s raucous live shows and handsome stage design have had tongues wagging and feet stomping across Britain for some time, but 2011 saw the spectacle of her performances taken to another level, with major festival dates including Greenman, Womad, Glastonbury and Latitude. Headline shows at London' s KOKO, The Royal Festival Hall and Glasgow' s Celtic Connections and extensive world wide touring, visiting Australia, Japan, USA, Canada and Europe. Now with a list of accolades as long as a pair of stripy tights, the Worlds Finest Purveyors of Circus Swing release their new highly anticipated album, ‘Band Called Out For More’ on the 11th June 2012.
