Gabe Griffin – Leveraging the Power of Now to Create Honest and Heartfelt Music
Self-belief is a powerful thing capable of pushing a person beyond boundaries to their success. Self-belief is the product of confidence, knowing what one wants to achieve and how to achieve them. Gabe Griffin, born Gibson Gabriel Gabe Griffin Gerace, perfectly represents how belief in oneself can be the launchpad for a successful music career.
Gabe Griffin has been a staunch believer in following one’s dreams from a very young age. As a 15-year-old, he recognized the importance of taking advantage of the moment to do the things he loved by beginning to write poetry. For the next two years, he mastered the art of poetry, and by his 17th birthday, he began to compose music. As time progressed and he got more grounded in music, he started to make valuable connections and linked up with the co-founder of Ruby Entertainment Group LLC, Bailey Rae Harrison, which signified the beginning of his upward climb in the industry.
The Southern California artist has since then combined his poetic mastery with his exquisite musical composition and desire to share his art with the world. He embodies honesty as an artist and is all about creating music as he feels and deems fit. His music pushes people looking to escape reality and enjoy a new experience. He talks about different journeys, stories, and different possibilities for everyone. The Gabe Griffin brand hopes to build a positive image that people can see, relate with, attach themselves to, and draw inspiration from.
Gabe Griffin’s music has never been about pleasing people, as he believes music is subjective. “You will never know what someone likes unless they listen to it, and you should share music that is a part of who you are. Artists can’t let what others think dictate how they approach their creative side,” he said. He also believes in telling stories through music which further lends credence to his belief that every artist should stick to their identities when creating music rather than focus on making music that everyone wants to listen to.
“Everyone has a story to tell that differs from the next person, so why not make it extraordinary? Music is subjective, and I believe every artist should make music that portrays how they feel rather than what they think people want to listen to. Trying to make music for people is why we have many similar styles and sounds today,” he said.
His belief about following one’s dream is hinged on not knowing what will happen if one does not try. It’s why he puts his best into his craft because that is the only thing he can control.
“All this hard work in creating music and sharing it with others may not work out in my favor, but I will never know unless I take a leap forward today, not tomorrow, not next year, but right now,” he said. Over the next few years, he sees his music gaining more ground and capturing audiences’ hearts and ears. He hopes to become a powerful force on the global music scene and turn lives around with his lyrics.
