Gabby is one of 7 siblings of 4 sisters and 2 brothers him being the youngest. He grew up where music was a big part in the house hold, the only entertainment there was. The fiddle and the acoustic guitar were the instruments played amongst the evenings. Gabby started singing and playing guitar in his late teens, learning to play and sing along to gospel music. Later on performed on local TV stations a couple hours on Sundays. Then went on performing in gospel jamborees in the surrounding communities of Island lake. When Gabby first heard the song "If tomorrow never comes" by Garth Brooks, with the passing of his oldest brother in 1992, Gabby started listening and played to country music. Then he went on entering in talent shows in the community's Bannock Festival, Cross lake's Ernest Monias Talent showcase and 2004 NCI Jam in Winnipeg.
