Central West musician Gabbi Bolt has gone viral on TikTok with her verbatim renditions of historical Australian politicians speeches.
Recently, Miss Bolt transformed former Prime Minister Paul Keating's iconic 1992 speech into a RnB ballad.
"I have been working on my new album and was suffering from writers block so as an exercise I decided to upload TikTok videos," she said.
"At first, I followed the trend of remixing the duet TikTok meme between journalist Andrew Probyn and Scott Morrison, then Julia Gillard's iconic misogyny speech which has 100,000 views and counting and the Keating video took off."
As a music teacher by day, Miss Bolt did not expect the videos to gain momentum overnight.
"I was worried people were going to call me out on the music but it doesn't inflict any opinion rather has a musical twist," she said.
"I think people who are on the social media platform are looking for a distraction during the coronavirus and I've enjoyed the process of producing the music."
With a millennial user handle of fettuccinefettuqueen, she said her social media following has increased with nearly 6,000 followers on TikTok.
"I think it's important for musicians to continue live streaming and uploading their music to different platforms so they can get support and to stay connected," Miss Bolt said.
"I've been able to sell a couple of my CDs with the new TikTok following."
