Gunnar Gehl Is The New Heartthrob Music Needs

emilytreadgold #12, Features

Gunnar Gehl is the 17 year old, teen pop heartthrob, singer songwriter, you didn’t know you needed. He just finished touring with PRETTYMUCH last year and is now dropping music of his own. He’s so attentive to detail and all of it is very evident in his songs. We area already loving Ocean Blue” and “Outta My Mind” and we can’t wait to hear what’s next.

Gunnar, what inspired you to pick up the guitar?

I actually played piano one time when I was about 6, and fell in love with music, but mom and dad thought a guitar would be a better fit (which it was), so they got it for my 7th birthday.

What about John Mayer inspires your music and storytelling?

I think the biggest thing I have taken away from watching him is his true love for music. Whether it be for five people or fifty thousand, it doesn't matter. He just plays music he loves and I really respect that.

Did you experience any hurdles or setbacks in the industry?

I would say the biggest set back at times is myself. I tend to think too far in advance and worry myself when I just need to take a deep breath and trust myself and the people around me!

What's next for you this year?

You know this year is gonna be I think a very big one. I think this year will be a really good one to step my foot into the industry a lot more and show everybody what I love to do. I'm focusing on getting good good music as of now, and once we have it... you'll know.
