Hi! I'm a jazz-trained singer, songwriter, pianist, bassist, producer and arranger with over 10 years experience in the studio and onstage; originally from Australia, I'm now based in NY and LA. If you need warm, emotive lead vocals, lush backing harmonies, or a catchy topline, delivered with precision and professionalism, hit me up!
I have a BFA and a BMus from The New School for Jazz and the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts. I have sung on a variety of demo tracks for leading commercial music houses, in a range of styles such as electronic pop, folk, indie rock, gospel, jazz and classical. I lead the Brooklyn-based indie trip-hop band RVBY MY DEAR, of which I am the primary songwriter, singer and arranger. My sound and songs have been compared to Lana Del Rey, Liz Fraser of Massive Attack, Beth Gibbons of Portishead, London Grammar, Daughter, Fiona Apple and Bjork. I am also a soprano with the contemporary classical vocal ensemble Khorikos.

Amazing singer and excellent musician! A hidden gem of the site, she is incredible. Thank you Gabbi!
Super easy to work with. Has an excellent music theory background. Always comes more than prepared. Performed beautifully and flawlessly. She's become my go-to for everything from voiceover to backing vocals. Every single note in her vocal performance has purpose and conviction. She sings with technical proficiency as well as artistry. Would highly recommend for collaborative work as well gigs.
Gabbi is a total pro.
I'm pretty tough on session players, but Gabbi does an incredible job of understanding what delivery I'm looking for - and her execution is PERFECT. I just had her in for some vocal harmonies. She came in prepared and knocked them out on. the. first. take. Cadence, pitch, feel. When you're in a studio and time is money, what more can you ask?
