Gossling has nothing to do with Ryan Gossling. She's Helen Croome and she rules. See if she passes your sniff test.
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
Gossling is the project of singer-songwriter Helen Croome. With 3 EPs under her belt in Australia, she recently released her debut album Harvest of Gold to glowing reviews. A little more locally Gossling has had tunes appear in TV shows American Horror Story, Gossip Girl and Graceland. Look out for the U.S. album release in 2014. In the mean time check out the new single 'Wild Love' to tide you over!
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Maybe working in some capacity in the film or TV industry. I love the magical world of movies and TV.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
My super power is an acute sense of smell. It drives my family nuts, but I would class my sense of smell as one of my talents!
Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
About 18 months ago, I had my first personal experience with anxiety. People had told me how debilitating anxiety could be in the past but it wasn't until I started living with it myself that I really understood what they meant. I wrote 'Pulse' which appears on my debut album Harvest of Gold about this introduction to anxiety and how it took over my body and mind. I've since managed to overcome my anxiety by learning how to meditate and control the early signs, making sure it doesn't develop again.
Finish this sentence: Gossling is the artist that...
...you will hopefully be hearing a lot more from in the near future! I recently visited for CMJ and cannot wait to return.
We have to ask -- do people think you LOVE Ryan Gosling?
Some people have questioned my love for Ryan Gosling. But to be honest I'm more of a Leonardo DiCaprio fan. The name Gossling actually comes from my grandmother's maiden name.
Listen to Gossling's "That Feeling" below.
