Yacht Money, penned their name after being inspired by Leo DiCaprio’s character in the legendary movie, Wolf of Wall-Street. They honed their beat making skills in Atlanta and moved to Nashville in 2016 to add songwriting into their production house.
They met powerhouse country artist named, Gabrielle Mooney, (Shay’s sister of Dan+Shay) in late 2018, who is featured on their new single, “Fire Love”. “Gabrielle has country roots and we grew up on a steady diet of ATL trap and R&B. We wanted to know what it would sound like if we mashed up some spaghetti western guitars with some 808’s and then take that and put it in a blender with Johnny Cash’s face on it. Oh yeah and garnish that with a hawk scream sound too! What pours out is a high proof cocktail of burnin’ bedroom heat and smoke sung by each of one of us. This thing sounds like a Tarantino movie.” We have previously featured Gabrielle Mooney, with her single, “Come On In.”
“Fire Love,” sounds like it belongs in a Western Movie, in the best way possible. From the western guitars to the hawks at the beginning, this is an interesting mix. Vocally, this song is outstanding. I think both Yacht Money and Gabrielle brought their “A” games to this song. Towards the end of the song, Gabrielle really shows off her powerful vocals. Needless to say, this song is Fire and I love it. The Western sound works with this release. Just shows that great music knows no boundaries. This is bound to be a Country/Pop crossover hit. Check it out above and stream it on all major platforms.
Gabrielle has been busy with her new music and even helping launch a new business called 3rd Eye High. Founded by Mahja Sulemanjee, Tara Joseph, Sydni Joseph, and Gabrielle Mooney, 3rd Eye High is a Nashville-based, subscription box company focusing on women’s health, wellness, beauty, and lifestyle.
