Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Up”?
Up is a song, which I wrote about positivity and good vibes as if you work hard you can do anything!
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I was in my bedroom in a really good mood and realized there weren’t many songs that were just really positive and about life being really good! There’s so much negativity so I just thought I should balance it out!
How was the film experience?
It was so much fun. I filmed the video on a rooftop in London as the vibe up there really fits well with the theme of the song! There was such an amazing view but as you can see in the video it was so bright I was squinting the whole time haha! We also had clips from performances I’ve done all around the country so if you’ve ever been to see me live you might find yourself in the video!
Why naming the EP after this track in particular?
I like the vibe of the song and wanted the EP to share the same positive vibe and also it represents that I’m hopefully only going to be going ‘Up’ in my music career. This is just the beginning!
How was the recording and writing process?
It was awesome! I’m working with a new producer and it’s really easy and fun, he has a really good understanding of where I want my songs to go!
What have you learned from your time in BGT that you are putting in action now?
I have learnt SO much especially as I hadn’t done anything before the show! I think one of the main things I learnt is about performing as I now have so much more confidence and fun when on stage!
What aspects of love did you get to explore with this record?
I think I got to explore a love for the world and for life, which is really cool because I feel really happy whenever I sing it!
Any plans to hit the road?
I’ve been performing loads supporting a lot of artists across the country and your readers should definitely check out my events page: www.gabzofficial.com/events as I might be performing near them soon!
What else is happening next in Gabz’s world?
School! I’m still in sixth form at school, which is the main reason I haven’t released anything for a while. I’ve also been performing, writing and recording! There’s also an EP coming out after the single and loads more music after that!!
