Press

“Acoustic singer/songwriter Gabrial James, along with his army of Martin and Gibson guitars, has put together 12 of his best songs, lovingly recorded in Caledonia by Greg Vulcan, who also appears playing mandolin and double bass on the album. The songs are varied and easy to listen to, played with sensitivity to dynamics and rhythmic variation, unlike a lot of ham-fisted acoustic singer/songwriters who lack dexterity on their instruments. The arrangements are delicately layered and never gratuitous. As an extra bonus, Karisa Wilson joins in on backup vocals and some sweetly played violin. Go to reverbnation.com/gabrialjames for a listen.”

    He's back!!! Join us for the solo acoustic talents of Gabrial James. The show is from 8-11PM, and there is never any cover charge. You'll be sure to have a fantastic evening. ------------------------------------------------ Gabrial James Lundy, performing under the moniker Gabrial James, is a singer/songwriter from Grand Rapids, MI. He has been playing the guitar since the age of fourteen and singing since the age of eight. His father Charles Robert taught him how to play the guitar, and had his formal vocal training in the Saint Cecilia Music Society Chorale from 1985-1989. Gabrial started writing songs at the age of sixteen with Corduroy Kelley, his very first band, which was heavily influenced by the early 90's shoegaze bands like Catherine Wheel, Ride, Swervedriver, Slowdive, and Lush. The band went their separate ways and Gabrial went back to his acoustic roots and started to hit the local open mic circuits heavily. In the summer of 2003, Gabrial was invited to be the host/emcee of the acoustic open mic showcase at Billy's Lounge in Eastown. For seven fulfilling years he was the host of Grand Rapids' biggest open mic night in Grand Rapids, with loads and loads of talent coming through locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Gabrial has a smooth, acoustic folky style with tight guitar rhythms and an unforgettable vocal range that spans the spectrum. You will hear several genres in his music including folk, americana, alternative, and bluegrass.
