Gaby Castro is an Americana-indie-pop singer, ASCAP-affiliated songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet, model, actress, and activist. This 22-year-old San Francisco Bay Area native spent her early teenage years writing songs in her bedroom and performing them at coffeehouse open mics before earning a Bachelor of Music in Composition (Songwriting) at McNally Smith College of Music in 2016. Her discography consists of full-lengths Free Spirit
in 2011, Made to Dream
in 2012, and Love Always
in 2015. Her songwriting incorporates the lyrical power of Carole King, infectious hooks of Taylor Swift, and storytelling feel of Jewel. Her next projects will be a single release of her first bilingual song “Guerrera” and her next album, Foundations & Destinations
. 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.
