Afloat (New Jersey)
The members of the band afloat are Gabby Relos, Max Bizerak, and Josh Rubio. They are an alternative/indie rock group and their sound was influenced by groups such as Turnover, Citizen, and Transit. They are an up-and-coming group with great potential.
Gabby Borges (Hawley, PA)
Awkwardly strumming an Epiphone guitar that was much too big for her body, ten year old Gabby Borges began writing music in the small town of Hawley, PA. At that time, she wrote about her friends and the essential unrequited love that every middle schooler must go through. As she grew older and had more interactions with people, her writing ability began to grow. High school years brought confusion with life, and with that came dozens of folk-punk tunes that helped her make it through. She was inspired by artists such as Bob Dylan, Kimya Dawson, Amy Winehouse, and the Front Bottoms. Although the lyrics came pouring out of her, she never felt the overwhelming need to share them. Then came the end of high school, where every graduate was expected to know what they want to do with their lives. Gabby new what she wanted to do: music. She gathered her life experiences and wrote her most honest originals and recorded her first album “Linioleum Complex” and released it in April of 2017. Since then she has played in Pennsylvania and New York City and wants to continue to grow her fan-base.
