Using his violin and effects pedals, Gabriel creates a rich orchestral sound palette ranging from fiery and engaging to mellow and relaxing. His expressive voice brings an improvisational mastery to folk, classical, pop, bluegrass, Latin, hip-hop, electronic, jazz and everything in between.
Gabriel was classically trained, studying composition at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and graduating from UCLA Summa Cum Laude with a BA in Music Composition. He works in Northern and Southern California as a freelance composer, producer and violinist.
Gabriel has performed with notable artists including T-Pain, Mako, Elle King and Pomplamoose. With a series of effects pedals, Gabriel creates a rich orchestral sound palette with or without accompaniment for shows and private events.
"Classical, contemporary, opulent and wildly eclectic... it’s hard to believe that such lush orchestrations are created by one person with one instrument."
- Rand Cooper, The Hartford Courant
“What he has done here, all with one instrument, is remarkable. His arrangements and orchestrations are ingenious. He’s a superb and soulful player.”
- Paul Winter
