Gaby Castro is an Americana singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet, model, actress, and activist. This San Francisco Bay Area native combines introspective songwriting reminiscent of Carole King and Joan Baez with the contemporary style of Taylor Swift and Kacey Musgraves. Her new EP entitled La Guerrera//The Warrior EP was released worldwide on March 8th, 2019, to coincide with International Women’s Day. An advocate for mental illness awareness, many of Gaby’s songs touch on her personal struggles and the trials of those around her. Let her music tell the stories.
Embracing the folksy pop of artists such as Suzanne Vega and Sheryl Crow, Aprylle Gilbert combines stirring melodies with words of inspiration, joy, and - at times –sadness. In a voice both pensive and sultry that often hints at an underlying self-consciousness, Aprylle takes the listener on a trek that is semi-autobiographical yet familiar to most of us. There is an overall theme of learning to be true to yourself, and the happiness that lies in finding someone who will accept you for who you are. To that end, much of Aprylle's music is lifting and inspirational, though poignant reminders of a not-so-joyful past are ever present from an aspiring songstress longer afraid to bare her soul.
