Gabrielle

Performing on: Saturday 1 September

It's not often you can truthfully say this of a singer, but here it is:

Gabrielle is unique. She's unique as an artist, with that instantly familiar shimmery voice and those tender-tough lyrics and way of phrasing that makes every song feel deeply intimate. And she's unique as a "star", in the sense of having achieve a great deal without becoming an in-your-face, look-at-me "celebrity."

Gabrielle's career got off to an incredible start in 1993 when she broke the record for the highest chart debut by a female with the single 'Dreams' (it went in at 2, before rising to Number 1). Then in 2000, Gabrielle returned to the charts with the hit single, 'Rise', which featured a Bob Dylan sample of 'Knocking on Heaven's Door' (that he cleared himself after hearing the song) and again reacing the Number 1 spot. The multi-platinum album 'Rise' followed in teh same footsteps and topped the charts at Number 1. 

In an industry where longevity is becoming increasingly rare, the hits have been unstoppable; 'Give Me A Little More Time', 'If You Ever', 'When a Woman', 'Sunshine', and 'Out of Reach', which she wrote for the soundtrack of Bridget Jones' Diary. Then, there are the multi-platinum albums; 'Gabrielle', 'Rise' and 'Dreams Can Come True'. 

Having loved being on tour in November in 2016, Gabrielle is now gearing up to release a brand new studio album, her first in 11 years and 25 years since 'Dreams' hit the Number 1 spot. Gabrielle is excited for people to hear the new music and is looking forward to all the shows she has to come in 2018!
