Michael Gabriel trained and performed as a classical singer in Vancouver, B.C. He has been the lead singer in original bands in both Canada and the United States. After releasing two solo EP's in -‘Open to the Moment’ & ‘Places Along the Way’, he toured with his classical guitar across Canada. For the 2007 Canadian National Tour, he traveled for eight months from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast and many places in-between. During the tour, he performed solo (guitar & vocals) songs from the debut full-length album: ‘The Certainty of Change’ and showcased new material. Michael dedicated part of his 2007 tour to spreading awareness about children in developing countries and he continues with this message today. Toward the end of the Canadian National Tour (while on the road), he recorded a new album: ‘In This Together’. The 12-song album was recorded with classical guitar and vocals. With the start of 2008, he performed live to promote the new CD and the debut album. In March, an opportunity came up to work with Lakeshore Records on an EP. Michael recorded a total of 4 songs at Tiger Mountain Studios in Los Angeles. The EP was named: ‘Southern California Sessions’ and was released online and on CD. A music video was made for the single - ‘Angel Wings’. Following the release, many radio stations interviewed Michael and played the track. Several live solo performance videos were also recorded and posted. For 2009, Michael focused on both radio air-play for ‘Angel Wings’, live performances in Canada, and international bookings. He performed solo and with an ensemble consisting of cello, piano, and drums/percussion. In 2010, Michael performed solo and with an ensemble consisting of cello & piano. He also recorded and released another full band single called ‘Penelope Rose’ that would eventually be part of ‘The Discovery’. This CD was released in late 2010 and marked his third LP. It consists of 14 solo tracks and one full band song. The end of 2010 was punctuated by a cross Canada adventure. It involved Michael performing solo on the trans-continental VIA Rail train from Toronto to Vancouver and back. For 2011, the focus has been on launching the ‘Strings Attached’ concert series: "...Gabriel criss-crossed this country for the past decade mostly with just his guitar in tow and now wants the music he plays to be heard the way he envisioned it." -COVER STORY Bob Klanac - Scene Magazine - With tremendous support from the public and the media – the premier was a success! Michael performed with a pianist, cellist, violist and violinist, to a full room at The Aeolian Hall in London, ON. and received a standing ovation. For the rest of 2011, ‘Strings Attached’ evolved to adapt an elaborate light show to correspond with the symphonic movements in Michael’s original story-telling and emotionally fluid material, intricate choir arrangements, and a gifted orchestral ensemble, to create: “...a breathtaking coming together of sound." - Marielle Julian, Velvet Rope Magazine Michael, the ensemble, and his management team are currently seeking concert hall venues that will effectively showcase and accommodate this orchestral event in Canada, the US and the UK.
