Gabby Young And Other Animals – New Single & UK Tour

unnamed

On November 30 Gabby Young & Other Animals release the stunning new single, ‘Fear Of Flying,’ the latest offering from the critically acclaimed album, ‘One Foot In Front of the Other,’ released earlier this year.

‘Fear of Flying is a personal favourite,’ says Gabby. ‘It’s about being so fiercely independent I refused to let people get involved in my career and life, but I am so thankful I got over that and let people in. Those people have made my life so much better. They help me conquer my fears, which I have too many of – including the fear that I might be scared of flying, which is crazy.

A hands-down classic in the same vein as Gabby’s ‘We’re All In This Together’ – a fan favourite from her 2010 debut album, ‘Fear of Flying’ is one of the album’s more simple songs. However armed with a beautiful melody and Gabby’s delicate vocals, the song slowly builds with the help of some clever percussion into a soaring torch song, becoming perhaps one the finest moments of her career so far.

And don’t miss the accompanying video, simple and beautiful as the song itself, with Gabby adorned in feathers and frills, singing from a giant bird’s nest…

The album ‘One Foot In Front of The Other’ was released earlier this year to critical acclaim. Following two previous albums, both equally lauded, Gabby Young & Other Animals continue to push boundaries winning over press and fans alike, with praise everywhere from The Guardian Financial Times, The Metro, The Independent, to The Sunday Times, Evening Standard and Daily Mirror.

She also continues to wow with her breathtaking live shows, with a huge following across Europe, Gabby’s spent the summer touring continuously, and now finally returns to the UK & Ireland for three shows throughout November:

Fri 21 November – Dundee Jazz Festival

Mon 24 November – National Concert Hall, Dublin, Ireland

Thurs 27 November – Oslo, Hackney, London

MOYA

2012 was a big year for 21 year old Moya. She started the year with a beautiful cover of  ‘I’m Losing More Than I’ll Ever Have’ and ended it with ‘Making Me Fall’  – A Listed for 3 weeks on BBC Radio 2.  Hailed by Perez Hilton as “A female Bruno Mars,” tipped by Fearne Cotton on her Radio One show and described as “Provocative, stylish and sassy” by The Daily Mirror – we’re expecting big things for Moya in 2013. Her stunning new single ‘A Little More Love’  is due out early next year, but in the mean time here’s ‘Making Me Fall’

DARYL HALL AND RUMER

Our round up of 2012 wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the legend that is Daryl Hall. A real return to form this year with his brand new studio album, ‘Laughing Down Crying,’ which won him praise everywhere from the Telegraph, Times and Q Magazine. There was the sold out gig at Shepherd’s Bush too, which featured guest appearances from both KT Tunstall and Rumer. The latter of which also appeared on Daryl’s now famous ‘Live From Daryl’s House. Here’ s our favourite from that session, Daryl and Rumer singing Hall & Oates classic, ‘Can’t Go For That.’

ANJA MCCLOSKEY

We’ve worked with Anja throughout the year, and pleased to see her music finally getting the recognition it deserves. Q likened her to “A Romany gypsy cabaret show” whilst This Is Fake DIY was “Taken aback by the sheer level of beauty.” It’s hard to pick a favourite from Anja, but we’d suggest starting with the lovely ‘Italian Song’:

SCARLETTE FEVER

Another One to Watch for 2013, Scarlette Fever’s debut single ‘Crash & Burn’ hit the BBC Radio 2’s B-list last year in the UK, and reached #2 on the Billboard Breakout Club Chart in the USA. This year she followed it with another Radio 2 B-list for widescreen ballad ‘Elated,’ along with national press acclaim.  She’s currently in the studio recording new material with Julian Emery (Lissie, McFly, Newton Faulkner) and has spent the latter half of this year performing, writing and recording in the US.

Here’s one of our favourites from this year:  ‘Hour Of Sunshine’

Gabby Young & Other Animals – Bush Hall

 

Following their sold out album launch at London’s Scala this summer, Gabby Young And Other Animals have confirmed they are returning to the capital to headline Bush Hall, in Shepherds Bush on Thursday 15th November.

“We’re so excited to play at Bush Hall again,” says Gabby. “We wanted to play somewhere beautiful and in fitting with the band and music so this stunning old dance hall is perfect.”

“ We’ve been touring a lot this year and we decided to strip away the guest performers that London audiences have seen in the past few years, which gives the animals a chance to shine. We can’t wait to see our wonderfully loyal London fans there – we have some special things planned for this one.”

Gabby Young & Other Animals new single Walk Away is out on Monday

This Monday, Gabby Young And Other Animals release their new single ‘Walk Away’ from their highly acclaimed second album, ‘The Band Called Out For More’.

‘Walk Away’, Gabby’s first song written on piano, builds to a celebratory horn-infused climax: ‘I woke up one morning at 6am,’ she says, ‘and this came out, lyrics and all, in 5 minutes. It was something I really needed to say to my Dad.’ It’s very different from last single ‘In Your Head’ which allowed fans to connect with the upbeat party tempo of the first album ‘We’re All In This Together.’

And don’t miss the heart-wrenching new video, directed by Gabby’s partner and producer, Stephen Ellis. Filmed on location in the depths of Hampstead Heath, the video features Gabby’s actual father, Edward, alongside a captivating performance from Gabby. “I wanted to make a real and emotional video,” says Gabby. “This song is a message for my Dad and I am so pleased that he could be in it. I found the whole experience of shooting and now watching it back very moving.

Gabby’s first album ‘We’re all In This Together’ was released in 2010 receiving positive write-ups by many of the UK’s major newspapers, including The Guardian, The Sunday Times and the London Evening Standard, with The Guardian even naming the band in their “Anti-tips for 2010: the acts who deserve to be heard.’

Walk Away is out on Monday.
