Gabriella’s music is appreciated by anyone inspired by the Divine in life and seeking connection to their Higher Power. She writes and sings in a folk country blend. Gabriella has produced 7 CDs, her most recent being “Love’s Dream” with Andrew Marlin, a young and talented singer and instrumentalist from the group Mandolin Orange. Gabriella’s earlier recordings were with the wonderful singer-composer Mark Malachi.
Gabriella writes from her life experience which has been colored by tragedy as well as beauty. She was hit by a car in 1995 and has been wheelchair-bound since. “Music is a way to soar,” she says. “I discovered that early-on. Nothing can bind the spirit when I sing.” Not only a musician, Gabriella is a writer of both prose and poetry. Her most current project is a book about care-giving and care-receiving and the potential for that to be a sacred relationship.
Gabriella has worked herself with many people in a care-giving role. For many years, she has done Polarity and Hakomi Therapy with clients.
Her songs are optimistic and joyous. She draws great inspiration from her musical as well as her poetic influences. “In every family festivity we sing Cris Williamson’s ‘Waterfall’”. Some of her recordings put music to the poetry of Rumi (“I Won’t Hold Back Life”) and Bhau Kalchuri (“Happiness is Better”). Her current effort (“Love’s Dream”) features all original material.
