Summer: rain, floods and cold winds are haunting us daily, so for the time being we’ve reverted back to the music that better fits a scene of a warm jumper and roasting fire, but that at least brightens the soul!
YouTube sensation Gabrielle Aplin from Bath in Somerset has the perfect tone that we love here at Cellardoor. With her playful acoustic arrangements and ability to sing and song-write, there is much to admire about this ‘internet sensation’.
In particular, ‘Home’, which is written and sung by Gabrielle, is a personal and honest song about rising above being hurt and appreciating the special people that make us feel secure wherever we are in the world. It is a song that we could almost imagine being happily lost wandering along the Celtic lands with the wind in our hair and content with life…bliss!
Gabrielle has recently toured as the support act for Gotye in February 2012 and has just completed a UK tour of her own. If you want to see this cheerful singer-songwriter, she is next playing at the Larmer Tree Festival at Salisbury in Wiltshire this week 11-15 July.
