Last month, pop singer/songwriter Gabe Kubanda released his new single “Damn Plans.” Today, you can watch a music video for the track, one that shows how everyone has had a hard time figuring themselves out, no matter the decade.
“The video goes through multiple time periods (80’s, 90’s, grunge era, emo era, modern day),” says Kubanda. “We’re all trying to figure ourselves out through the different decades and trying to find our place in the world, whether that be trying to fit in by dressing in the appropriate fashion for the era, or with a certain group of friends, etc. In the end, and after multiple attempts, the guy gets the girl by finally just being himself.“
“Damn Plans” is about changing your thought process. Not getting stuck in the hamster wheel of negative “shoulda-coulda-woulda” thoughts and emotions, and learning to be OK with not having everything figured out just yet. Make some new plans and ideas to become the person you want to be. Make some new mistakes and learn from them, but stop repeating those “same mistakes” over and over again.
As an international touring artist, Kubanda knows a thing or two about having big plans. He launched his concert company Epic Proportions Tour in 2011, hitting the road in an old school bus powered by used vegetable oil. The singular goal was to bring national recognition to upcoming bands. Now, surpassing 650 concerts and 22 tours (including the US, Australia, and Europe), Kubanda still finds the time to steadily release catchy, indie-pop gems.
Kubanda got his first taste of success after being a featured cast member on VH1 Classic’s: Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp reality show. That experience soon evolved into opportunities to tour/perform at Vans Warped Tour, Summerfest, SXSW, CMJ Festival, NAMM and many more.
As if there wasn’t enough on Kubanda’s plate, he recently launched EduMusication, a non-profit program that promotes the importance of music education to high school and college students. The crew spends time inspiring the music students in their classrooms, providing live performances, workshops, and lectures.
