Gabby Young was on track to become an opera singer until Jeff Buckley and the jazz greats inspired her to switch teams.
Gabby recently formed the existing band, normally a 5-7 piece, who complete the magical musical fairground we know today, using a wide range of instruments, most notably trumpet, trombone, piano and accordion. Young’s avant-garde fusion of globally-influenced folk combines Balkan brass, jazz and swing in an aural antiques shop from the future to produce what has been affectionately dubbed Circus Swing by those who realised there was no existing genre to encompass Young’s sound.
With two highly acclaimed albums under their belt – the band has had glowing 4 star reviews in The Guardian, The Times, The Sun, Financial Times and Daily Mirror as well as national radio play of their singles on BBC2 and BBC6 Music as well as numerous articles in music and fashion magazine across Europe, Australia and Japan.
Gabby and the band have been as busy as ever in 2013, touring in Europe, Middle East and the UK, as well as being filmed playing in a scene for BBC1’s very popular serial “Frankie”, in an episode that was the most watched TV programme in the UK that evening.
