Biography
Gabrielle Aplin is the whipsmart teenage sensation with spirit in her voice and ability to bottle melodic lightning who, at 14, wrote her first song, Ghosts. At 17, she made it the title track of her first EP. At the same age, she set up her own label, Never Fade Records. Soon she had landed herself a booking agent and was plotting her own tours round the UK.

Biography
Gabrielle Aplin is the whipsmart teenage sensation with spirit in her voice and ability to bottle melodic lightning who, at 14, wrote her first song, Ghosts. At 17, she made it the title track of her first EP. At the same age, she set up her own label, Never Fade Records. Soon she had landed herself a booking agent and was plotting her own tours round the UK. By 18 she had released two further EPs and was running a profit making DIY artist’s enterprise – with plans already afoot to plough those profits back into other similarly inclined musicians she’d encountered along the way. At 19, Aplin decided she’d learnt what she needed to learn under her own steam and was ready to take things to the next level. From all the competing offers from established labels, she accepted the one from Parlophone.
They appreciated her – loved her – for what she was. And that’s what she wanted.
Channelling the classic songwriting her ‘totally hippie’ parents surrounded her with in childhood – Nick Drake, Bruce Springsteen,– Aplin has already crafted a selection of timeless but also of-the-moment anthems. Big songs, but songs that are intimate too.
Home is an emotive, emotion tapping hit-in-waiting with a huge, choral sweep that was an iTunes Single Of The Week and currently has in excess of 2m YouTube views. It was written when this self-confessed ‘country bumpkin’ was pining for her village after relocating to one of London’s more, ah, underwhelming corners. November is named after her favourite month, references a ‘horrible fight’ she had with someone close to her, and finds kinship with her two favourite bands, Elbow and The National. It’s big, rousing, and carousing. And, at this point, she would also like to point out that she started her YouTube career doing covers of Katy Perry, Coldplay, and, in a live set more recently, Carly Rae Jepsen. So she’s ‘pop’ too.
Then there’s Ready To Question, a rollicking number that touches on sea-shanties, roots music and gospel, and was inspired by Aplin’s love of the O Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack.
First out of the blocks, though, is the instantly singalong Please Don’t Say You Love Me, which is released as a first single on Parlophone on February 11th. A few months back, Aplin had the bones of the song but not the heart. Then one night she was watching cult indie romcom ‘(500) Days Of Summer’. “I realised that film had the sentiment I’d been trying to reach. It was just a very realistic story. And then completing the song just happened. That’s the best way,” she beams. “That’s what happened with Home as well. The songs that come naturally are always the best ones. If they’re difficult, when you play them later, you feel stressed – you feel how you felt when you wrote it. If I didn’t enjoy the writing sessions I won’t enjoy performing it.”
Gabrielle Aplin – experienced newcomer, a rare talent with the common touch – knows who she is and where she’s going. And she’s determined to take fans, old and new, with her.
“I think people have been drawn to my honesty and my openness, I suppose, and the fact that I interact and engage.” She adds. “It’s not as if they’re listening to someone who’s not there. I’ll reply to fans on my website and through Twitter. I’m just very honest in terms of songwriting as well. And being honest has gotten me this far. So I’m gonna carry on doing that.”
A self-taught musician, Gabrielle already has firm ideas about what she wants.

Songs she firmly believes in: “If you don’t like a song and it’s successful you’re gonna have to sing it for the rest of your life, and you’ll hate yourself! You have to be yourself.”
An album producer who’ll give her songs the best possible sound: “People are quite surprised when I say that I’m working with a massive pop producer (Mike Spencer - Rudimental, Alex Clare, Rizzle Kicks, Emeli Sande), they think it might go a bit too far. But it’s really not – I wouldn’t let that happen - and he definitely gets it.”
Not disappointing the hordes of diverse fans who’ve blessed her songs with all those millions of YouTube views, bought over 60,000 copies of three indie EPs, helped sell out all six of her tours: “My song Home, for example, just grew, people were latching onto it. It seemed like it was a special song. Two years ago my fans all seemed to be 15 year old girls. But as my songs have grown, it’s definitely broadened out. Now it’s young girls who look up to me, people my age who can relate, then older people who reference me to things they related to when they were younger. It’s a great mix.”
Being certain that her new record label knew exactly who they were dealing with: “I made sure I had a clue about how it all worked. And no one could really say that I was wrong, ’cause I could prove it – I had the stats that literally proved my songs, tours and online presence worked. I wanted to learn about all that before I signed.”
Helping other young talents: “There are a lot of artists that I’ve found that I want to help – I want to put money into them, to develop them.”
Gabrielle definitely knows what she doesn’t like.
Compromise. Or, to be exact, not following her heart. “If I don’t like something, I try my best to make sure it doesn’t happen. There’s no point ’cause you’ve got to live with it.”
Los Angeles. “I never want to be made to go out to LA for a writing trip. Although,” she grins, “ask me again in ten months and I’ll probably be like, ‘I love LA! It’s my favourite place in world!”
Being styled. Or more importantly, on not being over styled. “I am me – that’s it.”
Gabrielle Aplin is a real girl with real talent, and a brand new star of tomorrow. Say hello to a breath of fresh air.
