Gabby Young and Other Animals Set for Cardiff Show Tonight

Gabby-YoungGabby Young? Not heard of her? Where have you been? Certainly not Glastonbury or the South Bank where she was asked to headline and curate New Year’s Eve just a while back. If you still can’t recall her then you will be hearing all about her soon.

She crowd-funded her first album which really placed her on the map. Gabby started a “Become An Animal” page – which offered fans the chance to ‘invest’ in their favourite new band. The Evening Standard ran a story on it, and the piece was picked up across the board with an interview and exposure on Sky News.

The album then topped both Amazon UK’s folk and rock download charts as part of the ‘Storm the Charts’ campaign. Positive coverage also appeared in many of the UK’s major newspapers, including The Guardian, The Sunday Times and the London Evening Standard.

Gabby told us:

“Touring and travelling the world has changed me as a writer: before gigs is often when the kernel of a song comes to me. Also meeting so many different people and experiencing their cultures has changed my outlook on life – especially in Japan, Australia and Germany”.

We’ll be asking her after the show this evening what she thinks of the ‘diff.

Gabby will be performing at the Globe in Roath, Cardiff this evening (22nd October) along with legendary DJs Flapsandwich (of Sicknote fame) and Tomy Tank.
