HI! I'M GABBY.
I'm a lover of all things music, history...and charcuterie boards. I love swimming (in fact I'm trying to swim in 40 lakes before I'm 40) and going to concerts. Follow along on this blog for a good mix of live reviews, artist interviews, musical history and about 10% random posts about things I love or feel passionately about.
My love for history started in high school when I had three amazing teachers who influenced, challenged and pushed me to be a critical, compassionate thinker. In my senior year of high school, one teacher in particular played a massive influence in my choice to continue with the subject. He brought history to life in the classroom and I wanted to ignite that spark for others too. As a result I went to his alma mater Trent University to get my Undergrad in history.
Trent was and is possibly the best university in the world (ok I'm biased and I know it). While it's small and totally hippie-centric, my tiny classroom sizes and unique experiences spurred my love for learning. I continued to pursue this in my graduate studies.
In 2013 I attended Western University to get my Masters degree in Public History. I kept up my studies all the while attending concerts and starting my own blog. Well...here we are today- a blog that started as a classroom project has grown into my passion project and has allowed me to write about the things I love.
This blog is meant to be a space for change. Music has the power to unite people across the world from different races, genders, beliefs and sexualities. I want this blog to not only perpetuate that love but fight tirelessly against injustice.
