Gabriel David

Red wine music

Singer/pianist Gabriel David keeps his focus on classy vibes, playing what he calls "red wine music" - crowd favorites from jazz, R&B, pop, classic rock and more in a style that's smooth but full of feeling, soulful and easygoing all at once. His repertoire spans from Bill Withers to Maroon 5, from John Mayer to Elton John, from Frank Ocean to Frank Sinatra. He could tell you about his credentials (majored in music at UNC-Chapel Hill, weekend residency at West End Wine Bar Chapel Hill since 2015, played more than 300 gigs, repertoire of over 200 songs, etc.) but nothing makes his case better than his music, which you can hear below.
