Compton-bred gospel singer Jacob Lusk, UK-born producer and keyboardist Ryan Hope, and LA-native producer-composer and violinist Ari Balouzian are the undeniably ethereal, soulful R&B-soul-rock hybrid trio that are Gabriels. Named after the street that Ryan grew up on, their brotherhood is displayed through a synergy that is matched by Lusk’s effortlessly, far-reaching rich vocal range. The unveiling of their 2021 critically acclaimed EP ‘Love and Hate in a Different Time’ quickly found fans in the likes of Elton John, David Byrne, Celeste, among others. Following a striking debut at Glastonbury, earning KCRW’s ‘Breakthrough Artist of 2021’ award, and hitting the late-night circuit on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Gabriels returned to LA in 2022 to develop the thoughtful records on their two-part debut album ‘Angels & Queens’. Production titan Sounwave (known for his hits with fellow Compton-native Kendrick Lamar) helps produce a masterpiece that holds memorable realisations about grief, loss, love and the inspiring sentiment that how losing someone doesn’t have to equate to loneliness. Stating the record as being ‘so personal, that it becomes universal’.
