Album Notes
Sweet and optimistic lyrics grace your ears as you listen to the sound of Chris Gabriel's first solo CD, For the Better.

A jazz-influenced, acoustic rock album capable of taking you away to a place where truth is an escape and fantasy is but a day trip away. Waiting for Love, a love ballad will transport you to those first days of romance you once had.

Drawing on local talents, For the Better features young Portland musical veterans such as country guitarist Dylan Thomas Vance, indy-pop keyboardist Eric Early, and jazz drummer Ken Ollis, among others. Such a diverse group of talented musicians makes For the Better accessible to listeners seeking a novel sound yet influenced by tradition..

Listening to Chris Gabriel's For the Better transforms the mundane into a beautiful truth that we can all relate to, an earnest truth which honors love and innocence yet critical, a truth hard to find these days. The title track, For the Better, reminds us to unplug and enjoy life rather than getting bogged down by the infinite flow of information offered up to us.

For the Better is an album you can listen to in your car, at your desk, at home, with people, without people, when you're feeling great, when you're not feeling so great, pretty much any time under any circumstances. Portland's Chris Gabriel will help enrich your day and fill it with the warmth and sweetness of his music.

The best of new artists...recording companies looks for you soon!
Very enlightening sound...I listen to it in the car, in the office, and at home. Keep your recording coming. I and friends love your music. We hear amazing combination of unique talents...we hear jazz, blues, pop, classic, and even Hawaiian tunes - while no one I know has mastered these, your CD provides them. I hope the big time/famous recording companies listen to it and market your CD very soon. This CD can light the candles for everyone who listen to it. Good luck.
