Vocalist and songwriter Gabrielle Stravelli blend musical traditions with a modern, genre-bending sensibility. The rhythmic swing of jazz frames her original compositions while as an actor and storyteller she reinterprets the Great American Songbook as well as works by contemporary artists as varied as Willie Nelson, Chick Corea, and John Fogerty. Unexpected, highly individual choices are her trademark.
Gabrielle’s trio featuring Michael Kanan on piano and Pat O’Leary on bass plays live every Saturday night at The West Bank Cafe in New York City. Every Wednesday Gabrielle hosts “The Early Set” an online music talk show featuring lively and insightful conversations with established and emerging American and international jazz artists. With a mix of humor and genuine curiosity, Gabrielle gets her guests to open up about their creative process, their musical influences, and the finer points of their technique.
