Gaby Castro: Songs of Hope and Healing

Monday, May 13, 2019

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness month, we present a performance by the talented Bay Area singer and mental health advocate Gaby Castro.

Castro combines introspective song writing with a contemporary style. An advocate for mental illness awareness, many of Gaby’s songs touch on her personal struggles and the trials of those around her. 

Due to the themes of the songs, this performance is intended for adults and teens.

About Gaby Castro
Gaby Castro is an Americana singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet, model, actress, and activist. This San Francisco Bay Area native combines introspective songwriting reminiscent of Carole King and Joan Baez with the contemporary style of Taylor Swift and Kacey Musgraves. Gaby's upcoming projects include an EP entitled La Guerrera EP/The Warrior EP; and her next album, Foundations & Destinations. 

Gaby is an ASCAP-affiliated songwriter and a member of the Americana Music Association, West Coast Songwriters (WCS), Folk Alliance International (FAI), The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), and Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI).
