Album Notes
Originally from her beloved New York, now Jo Gabriel lives at Starkweather Creek, in Wisconsin, in the middle of the heart of America. In this isolation, inspirational and where one can think about life, she writes her songs. And there is always the dark sides of the moods, the mystical reeling moments, that influence Jo Gabriel's retreat into solitude. With Island she created in the single handed attempt an adjuratory charming piano oriented album with each piano note virtually resembling a raindrop, and each text line a memory album transforming feminine eccentricities into music.

Her songs pulsate, brilliantly harmonized and full of rough edges, pleasantly accompanied. She worked together with Butch Vig studio crony Wendy Bugatti, and the sound was set, sharply and tingling so that it resembles a tonal connectedness. And of course, performed with her long time band member, legendary drummer phenom Linda Mackley. Island comes purring like a kitten, lulling you on, so that you long to take a glass of wine in a soft warm sofa. Romantic Wavepop, paired with piano - Farewells like only Tori Amos or This Mortal Coil are capable of, give Island the offering, the strength, to warm your soul.

Jo Gabriel had a small breakthrough when her music actually provided the background for the MTV program Real World and Making The Band. Was that a sign? She certainly would see it that way:" "I am fascinated by obscure little stories about people or places. Fantastical events or interesting mythos. How Hailey's Comet appeared both the day Mark Twain was born and the day he died.".....

With this album, Jo Gabriel keeps her demons, who sing about her in her songs, pushed and sometimes longingly beseech. "I dare not dwell in the shadows for too long, lest it leave a stain on my psyche. Like Rubyat said "I am myself Heaven and Hell", she says and we are of one thought with her in this sentiment.

This CD is truly refreshing and deserves a listen. I was only expecting 1 or 2 good tracks but the entire CD is great!
