We were fortunate to talk ish with a Pop/R&B Singer who has toured and performed all over the world…GABE!!! GABE has gained a wide audience of listeners, spectators and attendees to attend his live shows and global appeal worldwide. This prolific artist has been on tour with Chris Brown, Trey Songz and Cherish. Lets get to know more about GABE…
3 Voices: When did you first realize that you wanted to sing?
Gabe: I actually came out of the womb singing… haha just kidding but I might as well have. I have been singing since I could walk or talk but professionally for 7 years now and always knew I wanted to sing.
3 Voices: Singing baby huh? Lol we love it.Who are some of your influences? What actually inspires you to be a singer?
Gabe: Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Usher, The Temptations are a few of my many influences. Honestly what inspired me was the fact that I had a hard time communicating. Music has always been therapeutic for me. But also watching my influencers and the great pioneers singing and dancing their hearts on on stage. I have always been so captivated by that.
3 Voices: How would you describe your sound?
Gabe: My music is Top 40 Pop with some R&B influence. Although I have grown to appreciate all types of music genres.
3 Voices: You have toured with Chris Brown, Trey Songz, & Cherish. What were those experiences like? What was a memorable experience that you experienced on tour?
Gabe: Amazing to say the least. Can’t explain how much I learned from watching people I’ve performed with from little tricks on stage to engage the crowd to just provoking and pushing me to tap into a higher level of creativity. I’d say the chris brown tour in 2006 at the minneapolis convention center. (which happened to be my first big show and first with CB) There were a few of us opening and the girl who went on right before me sang amazing grace acapella… Amazing song but for a chris brown concert.. umm she got booed off the stage in the middle of her song and dropped the mic and ran off the stage crying her eyes out right by my dressing room and all I could think is.. Im going to hrow up! LMAO. Crying girl and all we went out and the crowd erupted for me and my dancers. It was at this moment I knew 100% this is what I was meant to do and that I had what it took. Never have looked back since and nobody can tell me I can’t.
3 Voices: Who would you like to work with that you already haven’t?
Gabe: As far as artists and producers there is a long list. Artist: If MJ was alive still he’d be my first pick. Out of living artists I’d say Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga because of their level of creativeness and how they are so innovative and one step ahead of everyone in everything they do. They set trends and are have mastered the art of reinventing themselves and that’s what it’s about. I could really learn from them. Producers, Neputunes, David Guetta, Rodney Jerkins to name a few. Their sound is what’s hot right now, and I feel like when we collab we are sure to make a #1 billboard hit.
3 Voices: What’s next for Gabe? Are there any exclusives that you can share with us far as new singles, albums, tours and etc?
Gabe: My first single off the new album will be Gotta Get Your Love which has already debuted on the independent charts at #1 and stayed there for 7 weeks. Currently I am promoting my mixtape “The Memoirs” which was released in July of 2013. The past year have been recording recording recording and really finding my sound and one I was comfortable with as representing who I am and what I want to be perceived as. I am proud to announce it is in the final stages of mixing and mastering and will be out by the end of the year!
3 Voices: How can the people reach out to Gabe on social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and etc.)?
