For Gabriela Geneva, sending a positive message with her music is absolutely paramount. “I’m very particular about what’s being said in my songs, and what it means." Her new single, ‘You Were Right’, which is grounded deeply in the Bulgarian born, Toronto-based singer/songwriter’s personal experience, is no exception.
Co-written and recorded with Shobha and Rob Wells (Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Nelly Furtado), ‘You Were Right’ is a uniquely powerful pop/RnB tune – one that will not only make listeners move, but encourage them to speak up for themselves, and celebrate who they are, without reservation.
When Geneva relocated to the UK with her family, music fell by the wayside for a time. Later, however, after settling in Vancouver in her mid-teens, it became her central focus, eventually leading her to relocate to Toronto in 2017. Over time she’s continued to hone her performance and songwriting chops relentlessly, developing a pure, but decidedly organic, pop/RnB sound – a signature blend of Eastern and Western styles characterized by massive bass and drum grooves and uncompromisingly honest lyrics. "‘You Were Right’ is the perfect track to reintroduce myself. It says exactly what I wanted to say, exactly how I wanted to say it.”
