“Gabrielle Wortman- The classically trained pianist, who is also a dab hand on guitar ploughs a line I think can best be summed up as alternative-pop. I am writing this on the day that the death of Whitney Houston is breaking across the world and I am immediately drawn to a comparison in the strength of vocal. What is far more impressive is the structure of the sound, which has real depth, as she has crafted the out-put on the disparity of environs in which she has lived, with melody utilising significant sharps and flats, to add emotional context to the out-put. The cross-over between urban angst with the wider spaces is allowed to develop, due to the sheer musical ability of Gabrielle. I use the label alternative-pop, as a positive indicator, the music has the mainstream sound, which is more than off-set by heart-felt and relevant musical composition.”

“Look out for Gabrielle Wortman! This rising star is a classically trained pianist, guitarist, and vocalist — and Celebuzz is proud to present her brand-new video right here. Gabrielle turns it out in her video for “Don’t Let Me Lose Control.” The moody, dark and soulful song has been married with striking, yet simple visuals that deliver a stimulating experience. Plus, the song sounds really good and she’s pretty. What more do you want?!? Gabrielle says: “My music is an aural representation of the emotions I’ve frelt, the places I’ve been and the moments I’ve experienced. I just happen to have a deep fascination with the juxtaposition of urban-city life and the deep, swampy south. My fingers take the city approach and my voice has a hint of the humidity, I’d say.” Her latest EP Voodoo is out now on iTunes. Watch the video for “Don’t Let Me Lose Control” and tell us what you think on our Twitter or join the conversation on Facebook!”
