GABRIELLE is an English singer and songwriter born in Hackney, London . She released her debut single "Dreams" in 1993 and it topped the UK Singles Chart the same year. Her other singles include "Going Nowhere", "Give Me a Little More Time", "Walk On By" and "If You Ever" – a duet with East 17.
After a few quiescent years GABRIELLE made a comeback with "Rise", which became her second UK number one in 2000. The “Rise” album reached the top spot in the UK Albums Chart, where it stayed for three weeks. "Out Of Reach" from the soundtrack to the film “Bridget Jones's Diary” reached number four in the UK Top 40 Singles Chart.
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 achieved a great deal without becoming an in-your-face, look-at-me “celebrity.” Following her dreams Gabrielle launched her career wearing an eyepatch that made her visually striking a voice that made her distinctive – and her differences contributed to her becoming Britain’s most successful soul singer. It’s no surprise this success has seen GABRIELLE pick up a number of prestigious awards over the years. Brit Awards for Best Newcomer and Best Female Vocalist, MOBOs for Best Single and Best Album, an Ivor Novello for Outstanding Song Collection and Gabrielle appeared with not just one but two albums in the official UK 100 records of the decade.
In 2013 GABRIELLE released the seventh album - a double album of all her greatest hits, some of her favorite album tracks and seven brand new songs. With the new songs came a new sound, the album titled “Now And Always - 20 Years of Dreaming” also includes a new version of the classic “Dreams” re-produced and re-recorded by Naughty Boy.
2014 saw GABRIELLE go on her first UK tour since 2008, with a new band, new team and new energy she loved being back on stage and had reignited her passion for performing live.
In April 2016 GABRIELLE hit the road as special guest opening for Michael Bolton on his UK tour.
In November 2020 GABRIELLE will be on a UK tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her number one album “Rise”.
