Gayle’s single “abcdefu” what is the inspiration behind it?
GAYLE: “I was going through a breakup. I felt super guilty with my ex. I tried really hard to be a friend to him and stay in his life. Then I heard through friends that he was talking shit about me, and all my suppressed emotions came RUSHING in. I was pissed that all the effort I put into our relationship and our friendship he turned into such a negative thing, and I was pissed that I waited till he was talking shit about me to let myself be mad??? So then I said “it’s time”- and thus “abcdefu” idea was born.”
GAYLE is quickly making a name for herself at only 17. Based in Nashville, she got her start in music at a very young age – by the time she was 14, she’d crossed paths with songwriter Kara DioGuardi, who promptly took on the role of her mentor. Now she has released countless singles including “abcdefu” which is a brilliant song about calling out your ex and taking back what’s yours. GAYLE wants to make songs for people to feel more comfortable with their own emotions.
What is a message you hope fans who listen to your music take away from it?
GAYLE: “Never change yourself to please other people do exactly what you want to do and what makes you happy. If people don’t accept you for who you are that’s okay because somebody else will and it will mean so much more when they do.”
