Gabby Holt hails from the beaches of Lincoln City, Oregon playing some good ol' optimistic folk rock. She grew up skateboarding and snowboarding. She began exploring the guitar at age 7. Family friend gave Gabby her Taylor as a parting gift when the Holts made the move to Portland. Gabby, now 13, decided she would hold on to music for the rest of her life. Influenced by the world around her, powder days at Mt. Hood and hours spent in the forest, Gabby began writing songs that reflected her respect and admiration for the wonders of the world. These songs would eventually become her first album, Harvest. In the summer of 2009, Gabby began playing and writing songs with drummer and long-time friend Evan Prochaska. The two found bassist Colin McArthur via craigslist, and after determining that he was not a serial killer, brought him in to complete the group. Gabby and the boys completed their first album, Harvest early in 2010. They have played shows and events throughout Portland, OR including Waterfront Park, Alberta Rose Theatre, Mt. Tabor Theatre, 94.7 Summer Concert Series at Streets of Tanasbourne, McMenamins' White Eagle and Rock Creek Tavern. More venues include, Oaks Park, Hawthorne Theatre, Ash St. Saloon, Insomnia Coffee, Mississippi Pizza Pub. Also Newport, OR's Mundo Cafe and McMenamins' Boons Treasury in Salem, OR. As a solo artist, Gabby holds the position as KEEN footwear's Resident Musician and entertains for their business meetings. Gabby is thoroughly interested in the gathering of people to be in the here right NOW. She believes music, the outdoors, friends, faces, poetry, and whatever gets us to wake up in the morning- are all amazing gifts we can share with each other. Gabby has come up with the idea of an event she hosted, 'The Good Gather' Which includes story telling, music, poetry and artwork. The name conveys the idea in itself; the power of a gathering gives individuals a platform for expression and 'one-ness'-- which she believes is a good thing. Future goals include more songwriting, gathering, performing, recording, going on tour.. and taking any and every gig.. anything to get the music to the people.
