“Masks”, a new haunting single from Gabrielle Metz, is about missed connections, and how that affects our interpersonal relationships. Reminiscing on fond childhood memories and searching for acceptance, she opens up about her own experience of hiding behind a smile, keeping others at arm’s length, fear of being hurt, not knowing how to let someone in, but still being willing to try. 

Gabrielle’s greatest hope with this song release is to open the eyes of other Gen Z young adults, and to bring back that art of communication and community. She says, “Growing up in a world of make believe through social media, texting communication, I hope that others will be inspired to dig deeper to establish more authentic community and connection.”

She continues, “Growing up during the cusp of Generation Z, most conversations were held through texts, Snapchat, and social media. Easily superficial, with only the goal of sharing the ‘highlight reel.’ Some of my first lessons growing up were in the Art of Conversation. Gatherings with friends and family were filled with storytelling and laughter.”

Gabrielle reminds us to take off our masks, take down our walls, and find people we can be our best authentic selves with.
