If there’s any Redditors amongst my readers, you guys may have already heard of this band and/or seen the above video. The sweetness of what they did for this old man and their unique covering of “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” was definitely enough to make me take a closer look at Count.
Gabbi McPhee’s acoustic, indie music is right up my alley. It’s a shame that she only has 4 demos up on her website, because I am just dying to hear more!
Despite fear of sounding like a huge creeper, I will say that I checked out some other people’s posts on the band Facebook page, and McPhee’s response to one of them promised more recordings in the very near future. So we have a lot to look forward to =)
I really suggest listening to her song Come Back Home (I’m listening to it right now, as I’m writing this, actually) on her website. It stands alone as a really simplistically beautiful piece of music, but it becomes even more impressive when you read her bio, which explains that she wrote this song when she was only 14. She clearly has a natural talent, and the way she pours her soul out into her music has me hooked. McPhee also seems genuinely grateful for her fans, as you can tell by her personalized responses to each post she received on her FB page after her Reddit popularity. Gotta love a humble musician =)
