Whatever We Are is:
Gabrielle, a born and raised New Yorker who sings and writes in the group. She earned her stripes as a powerhouse vocalist touring the world opening for artists like OAR, Tyler Hilton and Kate Voegele, and Andy Grammer. Profiled by the New York Times while still just in high school, she took home the coveted Amateur Night at the Apollo championship as a 15-year-old (in the adult competition), graced the iconic stage at Carnegie Hall, performed live with Patti Labelle, and climbed radio charts with her collaboration with platinum R&B star Jeremih.
Trippz, who was raised in Connecticut but genuinely believes he’s an alien from the planet Zeltron (you can’t miss the spaceship tattoo on his face), writes, raps, and sings in the group. He had his own major publishing deal as a songwriter with Sony ATV and built up a strong following online with more than 1.5 million views on his YouTube channel.
Joey, who the sole producer of the group, also writes and sings, and originally got his start working on tracks in his grandmother’s basement in Delaware. Within a few years, he’d produced for hip-hop stars like Drake and Omarion along with a slew of independent artists such as Witt Lowry.
Ian, another Connecticut native, writes, plays guitar, and sings in the band. He had his own track record of success as an artist and a hired gun, opening for everyone from Capital Cities to Neon Trees in addition to playing as a sideman with pop stars like Jesse McCartney and Katy Tiz.
