Empty Me, Gabrielle Herbst’s second album as GABI and first for Double Double Whammy, is a celebration of discovery, collaboration and community - and a leap into bold new territory for the singer and composer. After releasing her debut album, Sympathy, on Software in 2015 and touring North America and Europe, Herbst found herself in an intense, transformative time. In the years to come, these ideas, feelings, and experiments would lead her to a new sound, to healing, and the most direct music she has ever made. When she isn't attending the Yale School of Music, where she is pursuing a Master of Music degree in composition, writing classical pieces for the Nouveau Classical Project, or working on her newest opera, Ashes, commissioned by Roulette and the Jerome Foundation, she was exploring her new songs in sessions with Dale Eisinger in the spring of 2017, focused primarily on piano and voice. However, when she began arranging the songs with harpist Marilu Donovan & bass clarinetist Mara Mayer, later producing the record with Eric Littmann, with contributions from Steve Hauschildt, she made a major breakthrough. Herbst sees Empty Me as a hopeful record – the sound of charting her own path, pop music on her terms, and the beginning of a new chapter in her multifaceted career.
