Gabrielle Louise w. Meredith Wilder, Justin Evan Thompson & Kevin Herig
Add to Cal
Colorado-based singer-songwriter, Gabrielle Louise is a nationally touring troubadour noted for her poignant lyrics and lush voice. The daughter of two "vagabond musicians", she inherited a predisposition to wanderlust and song and a musical voice which is, as she describes it, "anchored deeply in folk and Americana, but undeniably drawn to rich harmonies and melodic adventurism." Her sound has the earthy feel of early Joni Mitchell while also veering into the spirited delivery of Eva Cassidy. Louise studied at Michigan's prestigious Interlochen Center for the Arts, and then at Berklee College of Music at which time she began touring as a solo artist. She has rarely been off the road since, sharing stages with such iconic performers as Richie Havens, Guy Clark and Eliza Gilkyson. She has released a handful of acclaimed independent albums, including this fall's If the Static Clears, for which this concert is a CD release. Tonight's concert will open with a "songwriter in-the-round" set by three other celebrated New Mexico based songwriters: Justin Evan Thompson, the "songbird of the Sandias;" Meredith Wilder of Wildewood; and soaring pop folk vocalist Kevin Herig.
