“There are very few singer-songwriters whose musical gifts I revere more highly than the lovely and amazing Liana Gabel. From a whisper to a bellerin', Liana's uniquely, intimately poetic songwriting is exquisitely animated by her lovechild-of-Björk-and-Billie-Holiday vocals.”
— James Keepnews
A singer, songwriter, guitarist, and tap dancer, Liana Gabel, lives to perform in intimate solo settings as a one-woman band, a duo or trio with talented traveling musician friends and with the Liana Gabel Band. Liana made her home in the Hudson Valley, lending her unique voice to the regional music scene. Apart from fronting her own band, she has appeared in a steady stream of projects— Liana and the Michaels (a jazz quintet) an EP of songs with songwriter Oscar Bilger, as a tap dancer with Artists Alliance Against Violence, with Los Doggies, and as a current member of the indie rock band Blue Museum. She has independently released two full-length albums, Rest and Heal in 2013, and is currently promoting her fall 2017 release of Go Outside, produced in collaboration with Daniel Nickerson at the Sanctuary in Arcata CA.
Liana's music is familiar yet strange and new, like meeting an old friend again, after a space of years that sweetens your past and present connection. Drawing from a range of influences from jazz, pop, big band folk, and indie rock, Liana's music speaks to truth and hits you in the heart right where it counts.
