Gabby La La

Be Careful What You Wish For (Prawn Song)

Gabby La La is tap dancing. Tiny of frame, huge of talent, she tap-dances onto the stage -- it's about performance and percussion. Gabby is hooking into a growing audience, as if the sitar she plays, held like a Strat, is tapping the cosmic escalator and she is ascending into some strange niche that has her associated with, and performing at, miscellaneous jam-band fests -- although she is not quite of that world. It won't help to mention this, but she played with Snoop on Leno four years ago. Gabby also plays the otherworldly theremin, the ukulele, and other fringe instruments, and she sings in a voice that is high and clear. Gabby's songs are, like the artwork on her first CD, precious candy-colored things, but there is a point where they step beyond that and change into something sly, even unsettling, as if she were bearding Tom Waits' Big Bad Wolf. As the title suggests, caution is advised.
