Belgian Artist Imelda Gabs Explores the Boundaries of Pop Music with Her New Self-Produced Single ‘Fallen Angel’



Through her first, self-produced single Fallen Angel, Belgian producer, singer, and songwriter Imelda Gabs is adding her own unique touch to the rich and colorful songs that she creates. 

A Daughter of Music 

Imelda was born to parents who were professional musicians. Her exposure to the art started when she was little and has then developed into ways where she can fully express herself with her own music. 

“I started playing the violin at 4, studied classical and jazz piano at the Conservatory of Lausanne, started singing, and later went towards the amazing world of music production where I finally could express myself the way I’ve always wanted,” the artist said. 

Her first live performance was in Brussels at the Palais des Beaux-Arts, during one of her father’s, Doctor Gabs, international tours. 

“I was 14 at the time and really nervous about performing at this huge venue, but it was also one of the key moments that made me decide that I wanted to pursue a professional music career myself. It also was my first and last performance with my father before he passed away, so I keep this memory very precious now and feel extremely thankful that I had the opportunity to experience that before he died,” Imelda said.  

Other than her first big live performance in Brussels at the Palais des Beaux-Arts, Imelda had another huge moment that occurred a few years ago in 2017. 

“I’ve been part of the Montreux Jazz Academy where I had the opportunity to perform one of my songs with famous bass player Marcus Miller. A few months later I got called by the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, to perform on their main stage Auditorium Stravinski and open for Lianna La Havas and The Roots, a moment I’ll never forget!,” she said. 

Fallen Angel

The one achievement that the young Belgian artist is the proudest of today is her first self-produced single, Fallen Angel, which she released last November 27 of this year. 

“I recorded the vocals at Hanaroad Studios in Switzerland, produced and wrote the music entirely from home. [The song was] Later mixed by Paul Norris and mastered by John Davis, both from Metropolis Studios in the United Kingdom,” Imelda said. 

The single also has a music video, directed by the young and talented Dariy Mambetov. 

“This video is also one of my biggest achievements yet. it is always amazing to make an idea come to life both musically and visually, and with Dariy it all came together amazingly and I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve achieved,” the young artist added. 

With more successes coming her way, Imelda notes the importance of never giving up. 

“There is always going to be a moment where you’re going to doubt yourself and your goals, but it is important to take those negative thoughts and transform them into motivation to get better and work even harder,” she said.

How Family Influenced Earl Chang, AKA Change, To Get Started In Music



To some extent, family influences certain parts of our lives such as our interests or even what we want to be in the future. 

Earl Chang, better known as the artist Change, knows how powerful family influence can be as it was the one that led him to start a career in the music industry. 

Born in 1988 in the Bronx, New York, Change grew up playing basketball had a heavy music influence from his father and uncles. 

“I was always around music at a young age. My uncle used to have a mic and like 1,000 massive speakers in his garage with a PA system and he’d go down there and play old reggae music and sing, dance and rap over them! There was something about watching them with the mic in there that grabbed me and never let go,” Change said.  

Now, he pursued his passion which allows him to do what he loves while creating a legacy of his own in music.  

Getting Introduced To Music 

When Change moved to New Jersey at a young age, he met Jmac, the friend who introduced him to recording music. They used to record on a computer with the microphone set up between the speakers. But now, he owns a recording studio in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. 

“I shoot music videos, engineer,  and, most importantly, remain an artist! I like to be in the studio a lot I feel like it’s home and that’s in any studio I’m comfortable I’m ready to work at any time,” Change said. 

Change is the kind of artist to make sure that his music is original and distinct from the others out there. 

In 2017, Change got together with his group, SGS the Movement. Since then, they have dropped a few projects together and a few solo projects. Change also recently signed to Mulla Gang the label under a production and management deal owned by Mack Mulla 

Putting In The Work 

At present, Change is working on his second EP titled “Never Too Late” which he plans on dropping at the end of the summer. 

He also just released a single titled “Mami” with Core from his group, SGS the Movement, and has just been featured on Mack Mulla’s latest single “Hater.” 

“My favorite part of making music is performing it! I think that’s why I enjoy making music and the opportunity to perform it and touch the people that are in the crowd make that connection,” Change said.

How Joseph Royal Continues To Improve As An Artist And Performer



Originally a YouTuber who has gained 100,000 followers in a span of two years through videos that feature his reactions, challenges, vlogs, and comedic shorts, Joseph Royal eventually changed his career path to create music where he tells stories of love, loss, and laughter for his audience to connect with. 

“I am a really good storyteller. And that is in telling stories through music, telling stories through content, or telling stories through acting,” he said. 

But putting out content isn’t the only thing that keeps Joseph busy. As an artist and performer, he’s also working on improving himself so that he can continue to do what he loves and feel fulfilled while doing so. 

Learning From People 

“The best advice for somebody who wants to grow in any area of their life would be to learn from people who have done it before you, make sure you compare yourself to yourself and take it one step at a time,” Joseph said. 

When it comes to the people who’ve done it before him, Joseph draws inspiration from artists like Pharrell Williams, Lenny Kravitz, and Kanye West. 

“Seeing how they were so different than most African-Americans Iʼve saw and how they pushed boundaries like creating fashion trends that people would find weird than copy really inspired me to be myself,” he said. 

And when it comes to learning from himself to make himself better, the YouTuber turned artist continues to set the bar higher using thought-provoking lyrics and great song arrangements. 

His approach to music is more direct and personal, often echoing the sound and feel of great acts from the past and the present. 

Looking Within Himself 

Being an artist and content creator isn’t as easy as it seems. It requires a person to be creative and authentic so they can stand out from the others in the industry. 

At times, this pressure can lead to stress and burnout. But Joseph has a way of dealing with this circumstance. 

“I recommend always to sit and meditate. If the outside world is causing you to be burnt out, look within and find where your fire comes from. Also by looking within you can ask yourself how you got to the point of being burnt out,” he said. 

Keeping himself in check and prepared to carry out his responsibilities will not only make Joseph a good artist, but it will also help him in achieving his goal of winning life and not having any regrets in the end.
