This week’s recital is brought to you by vocalist/guitarist Gabi Garbutt. Gabi lives in London and is the lead Dementia Wellbeing worker for Age UK Camden. We are incredibly proud to be showcasing her talents! Find out more about the Dementia Wellbeing service here.
Gabi’s debut album ‘The Discredited Language of Angels’ was released in November 2019. The poetic verse from Gabi is accompanied by punchy, catchy choruses that anchor the songs to everyday life and champion the redemptive power of love. Along with her band, The Illuminations, Gabi has toured with The Libertines and Edwyn Collins, and has an upcoming tour with The Boomtown Rats in Autumn 2020. She has also been championed by BBC6 Music DJs Cerys Matthews, Chris Hawkins and Steve Lamacq. Gabi’s new single, Genet’s Journey, is out on 26th June. “Lyrically, it’s at a level you rarely hear… consistently brilliant and unpredictable lyrics.” Cerys Matthews, BBC6 Music. “This will be amongst the best new tunes you hear all day, all week, maybe even ever.” Chris Hawkins, BBC6 Music.
