Steeped in music all 20 years of her life, this 5’5” powerhouse (more on that later) brings her unique voice to the world from humble beginnings in rural Connecticut. Led by both parents who sang in rival vocal groups as youngsters, music was and is a part of the fabric of her life as far back as Gabrielle can remember.
“Quite a few singers notate music playing in the background as I was growing up, but my house was a living jukebox,” says Gabrielle. “There was music playing all the time. Music from James Taylor to Frank Sinatra to Billy Joel. Today I listen to St. Vincent, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor and Alicia Keys. Thank God I fell in love with the beauty of song from my first memories. Music filled my heart with joy from day one!”
Today, Gabrielle sings with her band in and around New York, Connecticut and New Jersey playing in intimate pubs and small clubs. “At first, I was leaning toward more powerful rock songs but my heart totally lives in the quasi-jazz style of both Norah Jones and Adele. Are there really two better female singers to try and emulate?”
Gabrielle presents original songs along with some of her favorite covers including Judy Garland’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and Chicago’s epic “25 or 6 to 4”.
In her spare time, Gabrielle works out, teaches piano and vocals to local children and sharpens her skills as a second-degree black belt.
