Gaby Despain

Gaby is an American-Icelandic singer/songwriter. She riddles modern pop with dreamy electric blues. Raised in
India and Turkey and she now calls Seattle home. DeSpain spent her previous years traveling Europe and Asia. This shaped her love of pop, music for the masses, a genre most likely to connect with others regardless of language or cultural barriers. While keeping an edgy and electric pop structure, DeSpain dives deep into her collection of haunting memories and wild experiences with introspective lyrics. A world weary poet, she takes difficult topics while dodging a lagging and dreary atmosphere. Lush, fluid, tongue-in-cheek, sensual, and nostalgic, Gaby aims to comfort and commiserate.

Gaby DeSpain yet again continues to shock the Seattle music scene with another hit single titled “I’m in love with my daydreams”. This composition has a taunting instrumental track as its backbone. Feeling the synthetic chords strum and a brash reverberation of sounds escaping the speakers. It all creeps and crawls to your body. The brightness of sound coming from the guitar and piano bring out a whole texture to the music. As Gaby sings into the masses.

You hear an extensive amount of melancholy. The soul from Gaby DeSpain is beyond her. It almost sounds as if she has had multiple times on this earth. She so clearly understands pain, grief, and sorrow. She parades it in her music, in her lyrics, and you can even hear it in her breath. The idea of optimism isn’t out of question with DeSpain either. Some heart felt lyrics mention running fingers over scars. And even with being molded is still able to be in love with her daydreams. Her message is resiliency and strength. I hear the discomfort and do no know her causes of it. But I also hear the self love. I hear an example of moving forward and healing. With music like hers, it will be understood by anyone and everyone. All walks of life will be able to connect to that one feeling. Whichever it may be. The heartache. Or the betrayal. The joy or the contentment. It just might be a simple want of something more. As a listener I am drawn into the bigger picture. Listen and see what’s inside the frame.
