"Plenty" - Gabrielle Current | Review

"Plenty" is a slight departure from Current's previous releases with a pop hook that grabs you instantly while continuing to seamlessly pull influence from jazz and R&B.

23-year-old Gabrielle Current has snuggled her way into the hearts around the world, having garnered praise from the likes of Earmilk, This Song is Sick and several others. Current constructs smooth, soul-infused songs that whisk you into a meditative state-and her newest single "Plenty," is her best work yet. I love this vibe for her. "Plenty" lets Current's vocals truly shine. I think as a storyline any listener can relate, in leaving a relationship there is some element of questioning what you "did wrong" and needing time to be good on your own for a while.

On the single Gabrielle shares,"'Plenty' is a question mark. Some ties sever without a warning. It’s about the unanswered questions I’ve had to internalize and a false sense of 'confidence' that often follows the experience. Plenty is ironic, too, because what is plenty for the one that gets away sometimes leaves the other feeling empty. This is a song about that unevenness."

Having worked with notable producers including FINNEAS, Kaskade, Cassian, and Felix Cartal, Gabrielle's voice has reached the ears of millions. Now she is stepping out as an artist in her own right. She's worked with notable producers Mark Pelli (Sabrina Claudio, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez) in LA, and Charlie Perry (Jorja Smith, BTS) in London and her forthcoming debut EP was created in collaboration with Austin Brown (Hablot Brown).

The Los Angeles born-and-bred Gabrielle grew up surrounded by the arts. Having spent much of her childhood and teen years modeling, Gabrielle was exposed to the creative industries at a formative age and spent her free time at a weekend performing arts school. After high school, Gabrielle discovered the magic of songwriting. Littered with metaphors and poetic structure, Gabrielle's authentic and raw lyricism is at once refreshing and relatable.
