UK & Switzerland based singer-songwriter, pianist and producer Imelda Gabs is quite breathlessly brilliant on the incredible visuals for her debut single called ‘Fallen Angel‘. This is something rare and special right before our eyes.
Daughter of the world-renowned jazz pianist Doctor Gabs who sadly passed away when she was just 15, this young lady has made her own lane and he would be so proud of what she has created here.
Her music is so cinematic, each layer and move has been created with such pure precision. You can tell that she is in charge of her own destiny and is not going to let anyone ruin her vision with fads or flashy tactics. Each word is sung with an elegant class that is a refreshing cleanse of the current music around that is mostly dirty and diluted.
Scars on her back, seeing a newspaper with her name and picture inside, a movie-type start, this has it all. The haunting but beautiful start is an entry into something more than a song. this is her flying free, finally released from being in bands and in other’s shadows. She is doing what she feels is right and her piercing eyes looks right inside your soul. The gift to hold her tone is there, never trying too hard to impress anyone but herself. The scene of her with her wings on and the spark filled background is a moment that gives my whole body shivers of excitement.
With a jazz background and influenced in various genres such as pop, soul and classy classical, her music is clearly original and I love how she isn’t trying to copy anybody else’s style, only to be the best version of herself each day.
Imelda Gabs is born to be a solo artist and seems happy with this new adventure. ‘Fallen Angel‘ is a song that is edgy and real, her stunning voice and ability to get a top team to join her on the journey, is a sign of world class releases to follow with her debut EP set for 2021.
Sometimes you lose yourself and run away from that special soul that really loves you, You care for them but are scared you will hurt them so you run away but come back, hoping they will still be there. The ultimate love story to see if you are a match and the timing is always an issue. This is the incredible story and a spectacular song that will be timeless. This creation is that good.
