"Howling mad and completely irresistible" BBC 6Music
“Gabby is a special talent with an enchanting voice.” - BBC Radio 2
“A kaleidoscopic world of gaudy spectacle and burlesque beguilement” - musicOMH
And that’s before you get to the music. Almost uncategorisable, Gabby’s unique perspective on the world around her is inspired as much by her singularly surreal imagination as it is real events – most recently, her courageous survival of throat cancer. Gabby Young and Other Animals offer a slew of stunningly beautiful, often haunting songs that are a genre bending explosion of gypsy folk, pop, rock, jazz, cabaret – and a whole lot of soul.
Clearly not a case of style over substance, but, like many a performer before her, Gabby loves to play dress up – and since her double page spread in edgy style bible Artrocker magazine, titled “How to dress like Gabby Young” will attest, there are plenty of women out there who find her charismatic looks as inspiring as her music.
Gabby Young and her 8 piece band Other Animals have been playing together for just over a year, garnering a strong, loyal and extremely diverse fanbase enjoying the music, ranging from the burlesque to indie rock, folk and jazz. They have, on invitation, played major festivals such as Glastonbury, The Secret Garden Party, the Marlborough Jazz Festival and a recent sell out show at the famous Union Chapel and are playing The Big Chill, Latitude, Secret Garden Party, Green Belt, Big Green Gathering this summer They were invited to play at this year’s SXSW festival but declined in favour of a sell-out US tour supporting the great troubadour Al Stewart.
'Young's voice is flawless and captivating. We're All In This Together is a brilliant track and frankly we can't stop playing it.' - Entertainment Focus
