Full On Mone’t—also known as Gabe Darling (they/them)—is a multimedia artist from Central PA. They’ve been writing lyrics from a young age but have never attempted their hand at writing music until 2013. “I was listening to a lot of Twenty One Pilots and reading about how the lead singer taught himself how to play the keyboard,” Darling says. “That was the final push that I needed to start writing songs for myself. I was just
at a point in my life where nothing that I was listening to really felt like it applied to what I was going through. And the main reason I’ve always made art was because there was a vision or thought that I had in my head that I wanted to see come alive. If no one else was making it, I figured I might as well try.” Along with music, Darling loves to explore different types of art including making jewelry, zines, and drag.
Darling ended up joining the Sunday Someday project through Koji after the artist invited them to join in on a weekly Zoom call with other musicians. “It honestly felt really wild to be included,” Darling says. “But I’ve been so grateful for it.”
“My most important goal for this project would be to inspire anyone who may have had even a passing thought at giving music a try and for them to feel that final push to just do it,” Darling says. “I feel weird calling myself a musician or an artist because most of the time I have no clue what I’m doing. But at the end of the day, it feels good. That’s my goal for myself.”
