My name is Mychael Gabriel. I love music. Ever since I can remember - all I've wanted to do is create sound. For me, music is not just a form of expression, it is who I am. In a way, to know me, you have to know my music as well. Writing is the magic of creating something out of nothing; creating a feeling or mood when there was none; or bringing to life something forgotten or you never knew was there in the first place. Even I learn more about myself through my own music.
I was born in Berkeley California in 1986 - but I will always call Minneapolis my home. In a time where the city was booming with music from an age passed, I remember when I first laid eyes on a guitar and thinking "Oh dear God, what is that wonderful object of enchantment!?!?" - or at least that's how I remember feeling. I was blessed to have parents that helped cultivate my passion and the moment my fingertips first touched the strings of that instrument - my life changed forever.
I consider myself a multi-instrumentalist. I've worked in the industry as a musician and engineer working with up-in-comers as well as seasoned professionals. However, my passion has always been writing and creating something entirely new. My love for music spans across all genres - and it is my intention that it shows in the fibers of each song. I love stories, and to me each song is telling a different one from the human experience. With some imagination, a few breathtaking melodies, heart pounding rhythms, and entrancing harmony or two - you can bring that story to life... each note bringing forth a sound as reminiscent as the spirit of the past and as daring as the possibilities of the future.
If you have taken the time to read this - for one am humbled. I am also thankful and petition you to participate with me on this journey as we go forth, in order to bring into existence a new beginning, in the expression, which we call music.
