Interview: Gabba Delic
[gallery type="slideshow" link="none" size="full" ids="131779"] Hi Gabba! Thank you for chatting with me! You recently released an album! Congrats! What was the creative process like for it? The creative process for this album is a little all over the place. I wrote this album in many public spaces. I typically have music playing in my head at all times and it seems as though being around people sparks my creativity. It can be quite unfortunate at times because it leaves me having to replay something inside of my head until I can voice memo it in a quiet location. After I recorded something I thought was worth pursuing, I went back to my guitar and plucked out what I was hearing in my head. I think the weirdest place I wrote part of this album was in a grocery store. Who are some of your musical influences? There are so many! I'd say Courtney Barnett, Angel Olsen, Tame Impala, The Raincoats, The Cure, Nirvana, Beach House, The Doors, Cage The Elephant, Cherry Glazer, The Talking Heads, The Velvet Underground If you could collab with anyone past or present, who would it be? Courtney Barnett. She’s a rockstar. She can sing about whatever and brings magic to the simple things in life. She’s even better live. What has been the most influential piece of advice you have received? “Don’t celebrate before it’s time to celebrate.” There are many talented people in my life extremely passionate about following their dreams but get sidetracked due to substance abuse. “Lost in the sauce” is what I call it. I realized at one point in my life I might not be the best at what I do but at least I show up. How do you hope for your music to affect the world? Honestly, I make music for myself and for the teenage girls who like to dance in their bedrooms to escape their current reality. I would hope my music would inspire them to shamelessly follow their dreams regardless of what society expects from them. My favorite women musicians inspired me to live my best life so I only wish to return the favor with my music. What is your favorite part of being an artist? I love when my fans send me videos of themselves listening to my music. I enjoy being a part of their lives, even if it is just for one song. Please let our readers know where to find you! The readers can find me on all streaming services and online platforms.
Thank you for your time!
