ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The acoustical singer song writer style of Gabe Wilson is music that makes the listener feel heard. Filled with insightful lyrics and relatable phrases, the understanding voice of experience of this 48 year old musician comes through as each song reflects upon the internal struggles we all face every day, while sending an inspiring message about our ability to grow and overcome. Gabe’s lyrics emphasizes the connection between us through shared experiences and feelings of loss, fear and loneliness that we’ve all endured, and how even our mistakes and flaws help us to see how much we all have in common; The album, “A Break in the Clouds,”reminds us that no one is as alone or as lost as we may have thought.

While it may appear that the CD was named after it’s last song, the CD was actuality named before the song was ever written. Realizing how the messages of the music in this collection spoke to the connection between us all, Gabe was inspired to write the final song about how the challenges we face offer the chance to also be the answer for each other, and thus the song was in actuality inspired by the title of the CD. Be sure to check out more stories behind the songs at the band's website.... Love, Light and Harmony

About the Artist
Struggling to make ends meet, writing and performing music was the last thing on Gabe Wilson’s mind. He only began singing because his wife Penny ran a Kirtan band, and three hours before a performance her lead singer quit the band. Having heard her music enough between performances and as she sang it around the home, Gabe agreed to step in until she could find another lead singer.

In the following weeks his wife’s band Love, Light & Harmony was scheduled to play at several community events, but because many of the songs the group performed belonged to the former lead singer, Gabe began writing singer song style music of his own. Not knowing what else to write about, Gabe began composing lyrics from his experience from one of his jobs, in the helping profession, taking real life stories of struggles and survival of those he worked with and setting them to music. And just as he worked to help people through the challenges they were facing at work, his songs were aimed to inspire and find hope. He also found that he could find answers to his own inner struggles through the writing process. Gabe found relatable themes around the difficulties we all face and as a result, audience members at his live events often remark that they feel he was singing about their life.

Gabe's first musical experience was in his high school years. Though he studied every night, he struggled in school. (He later learned he suffered from dyslexia which went undiagnosed throughout his childhood.) Seeing Gabe struggling in school and showing signs of giving up, the high school band director suggested he learn to play an instrument so he would have something positive to be involved in. When he learned that Gabe’s parents were too poor to pay for lessons or an instrument, the band director offered to teach him to play trumpet for free.

The more Gabe played the trumpet, the better his grades got. Gabe later learned that his learning disability caused him to have difficulty reading letters in the correct order; But because music only had notes on the page, reading music taught his eyes to focus correctly. By the time Gabe was a senior in high school, he was on the honor role. Gabe credits his high school band director not only for being able to graduate from high school but for being able to go on to college, where he would earn his degree in social work. His experiences with music and working to help people going though crisis, would eventually inspire the concept of writing music that makes the listener feel heard.

The majority of A Break in The Clouds was written, recorded and edited by Gabe, sometimes minutes at a time between his two jobs, often on three or less hours of sleep. There were numerous times when Gabe began to doubt he had the time, resources, energy and even the talent to complete this project; There were times he felt like quitting. After pushing on through the obstacles and completing the album, Gabe’s message to the world is this; Dreams are reachable. Sometimes it may mean pushing yourself beyond what you thought possible, and continuing on though the incredible heavy feeling of hopeless; Sometimes it means accepting that you will only move inches toward your goals every day, and some days not even that much. Sometimes it means feeling as if the world itself is against you; But if you brave to face those moments of despair, and learn to appreciate the obstacles as teachers; And if you accept that dreams will be challenged, altered and even crushed, but see wounds as an opening for the light to enter; And if you search for and listen only to that inner voice telling you to quiet the doubt and allow yourself to believe; Then, if your dream is imbued with kindness, they will come true. We can all find, “A Break in The Clouds.”
