I actually stumbled across Brooklyn, New York (by way of Oklahoma City) soul artist Gabrielle B. on complete accident while checking out Twitter one day. The passion and peaceful energy that comes from Gabrielle immediately set her apart from her peers. In March she dropped a visual for single “Easy,” which came with the announcement that her third project Feel Something would drop in April.
Bandcamp has already picked “Feel Something” as one of their top Soul hits of April. “I’m calling this project Feel Something because that’s essentially what I want people to do when listening to it, is to simply feel something. Whether it be love, joy, lust, nostalgia or all of the above.” You truly get all of the above in this, with Gabrielle choosing to sing over a variety of sounds – some cheerful, some trippy, some more hip-hop influenced, some influenced by the past. All of it is absolutely beautiful.
Gabrielle B. hits the ground running in her debut EP, guaranteed to have you playing it back, but more importantly fiending for a full-length from the Brooklyn artist. You can stream it below.
