- I'm Gabriella Salvucci.

I'm a singer, songwriter.

I'm 16.

Growing up my parents took me to a lot of concerts

and just really kind of exposed me

to a lot of different genres of music.

I think music, like nowadays,

sometimes it doesn't have as much like depth.

I can just really connect with more meaningful lyrics

and more singer, songwriter style

than I can with just stuff on the radio mostly, so...

That's what I try to do with my music.

And a lot of my songs are

just based on my personal experiences,

but I like to try to also explore things

from different perspectives

and writing stories through music that are based on

maybe people in my life

and just try to get people to relate to it and...
