Oklahoma-born, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter and cellist, Gabriel Royal has been heard playing his “grown up lullabies” in the subway stations of New York City. That’s where he found his lawyer, his manager, and his cello – and where he continues to find a genuine connection with his inspiration: the commuters of the city. From captivating travelers on the L and G trains to headlining international music festivals, Gabriel Royal has developed a perfect musical anecdote to calm the busy rush of the world.
Influenced by Stevie Wonder’s groove and Burt Bacharach’s jazzy yet poppy sensitivities, along with other contemporary artists such as John Legend, Royal’s trademark sound is all his own. Gabriel Royal released his self titled album in 2016, along with his single and music video for “Say It’s Right,” directed by Blake Farber.
