Gabriella Lucia Cilmi [pronounced Chill-me] is an Australian singer and songwriter [born October 10th 1991 in the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong] who is now based in London. She has drawn comparisons with everyone from Duffy to Amy Winehouse and Macy Gray. She attended Sacred Heart Girls College located in the suburb of Oakleigh, but now continues her education via correspondence. At a young age she acquired an interest in a wide range of musical styles ranging from Nina Simone to Led Zeppelin. Despite her natural aptitude and vocal talent, she was told that she lacked the discipline necessary to pursue a singing career. During this time she formed a garage rock band which performed cover songs of classic bands. At her mother's suggestion she recorded a demo tape with her friends. In 2004 she captured the attention of Michael Parisi, a record company executive from Warner Music, while giving an impromptu rendition of the Rolling Stones song Jumping Jack Flash at a the Lygon Street Festa, a community festival in Melbourne. At the age of thirteen, Cilmi travelled to the United Kingdom and signed a contract with Island Records. Now living in the UK, she shares a manager with The Sugababes
