“If past history counts for anything, Gabe Lopez is on the verge of big things. From his soulful voice to the euphoric chorus of "California Blues," there’s a lot to love about this.”

“He creates music over a broad range of genres encompassing Pop, Rock, Dance, Soul and R&B and has developed a loyal fan base that spans five continents. His songs resonate across an extraordinary multiplicity of cultures.”

“Gabe Lopez is one smart cookie. Not only does he have a rich back catalogue of his own, filled with addictive pop hooks and emotion drenched ballads, but he's also worked on penning equally pleasing smashes for other people (most notably, "Sun" for Belinda Carlisle). He's currently prepping for his second tour with the aforementioned actual pop legend, Ms. Carlisle, and has drafted her in on his mesmerising new single California Blues. It's the perfect tease for the tour as Gabe effortlessly captures the soaring power pop sound that Belinda perfected back in the 80s whilst adding his own personality to the genre... Even with it's tips of the hat to the sixties and eighties influences that permeate the song it would still sound fresh and exciting on the radio next to the repetitive beats and regurgitated rhythms of today's current hits. Listen to this and invigorate your senses - no blues, just California sunshine all the way. Heaven really is a place on earth.”

“Singer-songwriter Gabe Lopez returns with his new pop-rock gem "California Blues," featuring the pop icon Belinda Carlisle. The two singers have a blend that is incredibly natural and ultimately Southern Californian.”

“What can I say about this combination? You get THE voice of the 80’s and set her with the up-and-coming voice of the future, and you definitely get a winning combination. I have been a fan of Gabe Lopez for a while now, just waiting for that moment that other people will discover his amazing talent. I’ve always considered him the male Belinda Carlisle, just the way both can handle everything from a punk anthem to a heartbreaking love song. Lopez has all the chops. I am so excited about this combination. It works so well. Congratulations, Mr. Lopez. You’ve made it.”

“Gabe Lopez croons about “California Blues” in new song with Belinda Carlisle. You can listen to the pop-dance track for yourself and fall into the melody.”

"On his just-released debut album, This Is About You, he criss-crosses back and forth between John Mayer-style pop to Justin Timberlake-y soul, throwing in some irresistible dance grooves, too."


"Mr. Lopez gets the funk. Mr. Lopez gives us hope for the future of music."

"His thinking-kid's pop-rock radiates the kind of sincerity that can't be manufactured, and even his dance tracks suggest an earthiness that's almost unheard-of at the disco."
