Gabby Young and Other Animals

Gabby Young and Other Animals Book online

Circus Swing - a musical genre that fuses Swing Jazz, Eastern European beats and English Folk - reminds the listener of the old fashioned Circus. Gabby Young and Other Animals are not only the ringmasters of the genre, but they practically invented the live sound.

As The Sun rightly describes, the ‘elements of music hall, opera, big band jazz and foot- stomping folk are all poured in to the mix with Gabby’s incredible vocal gymnastics holding it all together’. As famous for her extravagant costume as for her soulful voice, her flamboyant show has been likened to Florence & the Machine and Paloma Faith, while her classically trained voice has been likened to that of Kate Bush, Tori Amos, Imogen Heap and Joanna Newsom.

“…terrific live, really big wall of sound…we are playing this because we love it” Graham Norton, BBC Radio 2
