Album Notes
Gabriel James is a Minneapolis-based alternative singer-songwriter. His music is a collection of folk rock, blues and jazz. His vocals are thoughtful and his guitar playing is distinctive. Listen for yourself...

Appreciated by fans of Ani Difranco, Coldplay, Ben Harper, and Tori Amos, Gabriel is currently working to build a following across the Midwest. He is a regular on the Minneapolis club circuit. His gig resume spreads south to Des Moines, IA, and north to Fargo, ND. His debut album, Dance Songs for the Narcoleptic, was released in May 2003. In the Hands of Fools, released December, 2004, is Gabriel's declaration of his musical talents.

As a professional independent musician, Gabriel James works with like-minded professionals to maintain quality relationships with music venues and fans alike. He is currently booking colleges and clubs in the Midwest, and is planning an extensive festival tour in the Summer of 2005.

With his loop recorder at his feet, Gabriel has perfected his solo show for smaller venues. For the larger, club-like shows, he maintains a well-rehearsed & schooled ensemble with drummer Jeremy Johnson, upright bassist/vocalist Kellie Nitz, & Erik Naslund on trumpet. Guest musicians often appear on stage with Gabriel, keeping every performance unique and connecting audiences to a wide variety of independent music.

Gary Schulz

Excellent Debut! Smooth & addicting blend of folk, jazz, and blues
An excellent debut album, artist makes it sound as he's been doing it for years. Lyrics range from the relaxed and whimsical "Two-Tone" to the deeper and thoughtful "Dog-Day Afternoon", but never losing the same mellow groove that is heard throughout the album. Gabriel James's voice comes smooth and soulful, with words accompanied perfectly by bluesy guitar and trumpet accents. It's a sound not found elsewhere...and not to be missed!

Rikk's Revues

Gabriel combines his mesmerizing style, catchy hooks, and a sense of humor...
Based in Minneapolis, Gabriel James has put the right foot forward on this twelve song CD. His music is not easily classified as he blends guitar, piano, upright bass, percussion and a horn section into a mix that creates a constant vibe of jazz, folk, and rock. Gabriel's writing and vocals flow from track to track with an air of simplicity. From acoustic tracks with just a guitar and horns, to the fully orchestrated--Gabriel combines his mesmerizing style, catchy hooks, and a sense of humor.
Smart lyrics add to the mix as Gabriel writes of human emotion, love, sorrow, and jealousy. I recommend it for fans of Jazz influenced folk rock that transports you to
an acoustic landscape. Stand out tunes are "Two Tone", "Dog Day Afternoon" and "Little Jack Rational.”
