I’ve been lucky enough to meet a lot of talented people throughout my life. One such person is Gabriela Georges. Gabriele and I met as volunteers at Bluesfest Music Festival. We had a pretty instant connection and have stayed in touch on and off for the last few years.
I love watching friend’s music and poetry evolve, it’s so special to be on the periphery of someones creative journey and watch them evolve and flow with their creativity. And it’s satisfying to see it come to fruition and be able to genuinely use the words “I’m proud of you” in the most non-condescending way possible.
Gabriele recently put together an absolutely beautiful EP of spoken word and song. It’s full of honesty and her voice is like a warm honeyed drink on a strung out throat.
