Usually the songs of Summer aren’t released until upcoming weeks of the season, or at least during, but Gabe Reali and friends released the track on in February this year. With elated dreams of escaping the city life for the simpler life he once knew, Reali sings the struggle of being torn between future and nostalgia. “I don’t wanna be cold in the city”
While the track holds those deep aforementioned themes, the track’s beat and Gabe Reali’s underlying auto-tuned chorus make you feel like you’re hanging your arm out the passenger window in a lighthearted attempt to catch a cool handful of country air. “But I wanna be, where I wanna be; Warm in the Valley”
A true ode to getting away from the expected and finding where you belong, Warm in the Valley put Gabe Reali in the crosshairs of the Billboard Pride spotlight when it was featured on March 2018’s Queer Necessities playlist.
Between crafting his own beautifully-written singles, Reali also performs his rendition of pop covers in video-form on his YouTube channel. Catch him playing a show in Los Angeles or Santa Barbara, California if you happen to be passing through and you will not be disappointed.
