Abimaro is an artist that is as beautiful as her music. Behind her poetic lyrics, is a gifted writer that can translate God’s love into the most accessible language. After listening to So I’ll Boast and Books, I wanted to know the woman behind the words. I had the ability to do just that in interviewing Abimaro for Heed Magazine. In between my profuse compliments, (I’m a HUGE fan) Abimaro discusses the purpose behind her lyrics and the close knit relationship she has with her musical brothers Alex MontaQue and James Beatt. With the support of Alex and James who comprise The Free, Abimaro shares her artistic plans to reveal the true voice of women. Gentle and kind, authentic and pure, Abimaro speaks to the intricacies of life that pop music often ignores. She holds her pen with a grace the world should know. Twitter
Singer-songwriter Abimaro Gunnell seemed destined to become a storyteller since her youth. She weaved her love for poetry into the musical influences of her English mom, Ugandan dad, and eclectic sister. All of this started when Abimaro’s mom gave her daughter one request: to replace the pop songs she wanted to sing with meaningful words of her own. Just like that, a songwriter was born.
