Five years have gone by since the release of Gabrielle Shonk’s first album. After more or less losing herself in the whirlwind that followed, the pause imposed by the pandemic allowed her to recharge her batteries, re-focus, explore new musical avenues, change record labels – she’s now with Arts & Crafts – and come up with a new musical version of herself for the world to enjoy. With Across The Room, she dispels the myth of the sophomore album by diversifying her musical influences, and telling her stories from an even more personal perspective. In this video, she tells us about creating Across The Room, an album of which she’s extremely proud, and that will undoubtedly gain her a wider audience.
