Since relocating to Toronto in 2017 Gabriela Geneva has continued to hone her performance and songwriting chops relentlessly, developing a pure, but decidedly organic, pop/RnB sound – a signature blend of European and Western styles characterized by massive bass and drum grooves and uncompromisingly honest lyrics. “I’m very particular about what’s being said in my songs, and what they mean.”
Her new single, ‘Sweeter’, which is grounded deeply in the singer/songwriter’s personal experience, is no exception. “I’ve moved around a lot – from Bulgaria, to the UK, to Vancouver, and most recently to Toronto – and I’ve had to leave a lot behind. This song is about looking at a relationship through rose-coloured glasses, and preserving it as it was at its best; before seeing the bad sides of someone, so you always remember them as this perfect, untainted thing”, says Geneva.
Co-written in LA with Matt Genovese (PRETTYMUCH, 4TH AVE) and Zach Sorgen (winner of NBC’s Songland with Charlie Puth), ‘Sweeter’ is a dynamic and evocative Pop record, with it’s cool confidence and slick bass line, it perfectly encapsulates Geneva’s musical style.
Gabriela has shared the stage with international artists such as Shawn Hook and Ria Mae, and now, with a newly signed US publishing deal in one hand, and a Juried Sound Recording FACTOR grant in the other, the emerging artist is hard at work on her upcoming debut EP; teaming up with some of North America’s top writers and producers such as Kuya Productions’ Sammy G and Bobby G (Alessia Cara, Meghan Trainor, Christina Aguilera), Jimmy Harry (Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears), and Matt Beckley (Camila Cabello, Avril Lavigne).
