This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with and asking Britains Got Talent star Gabz some questions about her music, career and highlights.
1. Who is Gabz? Tell us a bit about you.
I’m is a singer/songwriter, rapper & musician who loves music, food & her amazing supporters! 🙂
2. How was the Britain’s Got Talent experience?
It was amazing! It was the first time I’d done anything like that as I’d only ever performed at school and church before so I was really nervous & had no idea it would go as well as it did!
3. Are you still in contact with many of the BGT contestants?
Some of them. I follow a lot of the other contestants on twitter & we sometimes direct message & I’ve actually bumped into Jack & Cormac, Steve Hewlett, Jordan O’Keefe, Francine Lewis, Jack Carroll & Richard & Adam a few times since the show at events.
4. What has been your biggest achievement to date?
Definitely having my song Lighters (The One) reach number six in the Official UK Charts! I still can’t quite believe it!!
5. You’ve played pretty big gigs, which has been your favourite?
Gotta be the BlackPool iFest where they switch on the illuminations as the crowd was huge & I’m quite a fangirl & Lawson, Professor Green, The Vamps & loads more were there so I was excited meeting them & watching their sets.
6. Who are your musical influences?
Jessie J & Ed Sheeran. They’re both amazing singers but also their songwriting is incredible too! As a singer/songwriter it’s cool to see others doing both!
7. Your new track ‘Counting Scars’ has just been released, whats the story behind it?
The song’s about messing something up & being really upset about it. I left it quite open when writing it so that it can relate to people in different ways but for me the idea stemmed from me messing up my mock GCSE’s and being gutted with the results! Luckily that spurred me on to revise more for the real GCSE’s which went really well! 🙂
8. What can we expect next from Gabz?
Well the EP is available for Pre-order now & will have some really different songs on it from ‘Counting Scars’ which is a ballad, ‘Up’ which is up beat pop and also a dance track & some rapping so hopefully there’ll be something for everyone! But after the EP I’m hoping to start using my YouTube channel a lot more.
9. Whats your dream goal?
I’d love to be really successful in music, touring, writing, recording and hopefully being able to give back and do lots of charity work.
10. What would you say to young people looking to get into music like yourself?
It’s really hard work but don’t give up & just have fun!
