Gabby Young was born in Bath, and spent her early life in Wiltshire, surrounded by the lush countryside surrounded by the Marlborough Downs. Her imagination was able to run riot, and she and her sister were fond of hosting impromptu plays and concerts from a very young age. She was on track to become an opera singer until Jeff Buckley and the jazz greats inspired her to switch teams.
Gabby’s unique perspective of the world around her is inspired as much by imagination as real events, but 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. ‘I feel blessed rather than afflicted,’ she says simply.
Sussex based singer/songwriter and guitarist Edd Mann cut his musical teeth at a young age, writing and gigging with a variety of bands playing many different styles of music. Edd has recently been writing and performing as a solo acoustic artist. With an eclectic array of influence and technique present in his repertoire, listeners can expect traditional folk finger picking mixed with a percussive flamenco style, and a captivating live performance.
Artists he has performed with and alongside are genre spanning; from celebrated folk artists Jim Moray and John Tams, to Jools Holland's tour buddy RJ Thompson, acclaimed roots/blues act Wille and The Bandits and heavy rock band INME's front man Dave McPherson. He has also sang as part of the Devin Townsend Project, for their sold out Royal Albert Hall show in 2015. Edd is currently recording his solo material, which will be available soon.
