Gabriel plays Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster guitars. He also plays James Tyler, Warmoth, Taylor and Jose Ramirez guitars.

Gabriel uses a DigiTech JamMan Delay Looper pedal as well as many other pedals and effects. Visit The Pedalboard Page for more details.

These songs seem special to me. If anything, they help bring me some peace. We live in very troubling times and I think it's more important now than ever not to lose hope in our humanity and our ability to relate to others, to feel. We need to find some peace (daily if possible) and remember that beauty still exists on this deeply troubled planet.

As a friend of mine said recently of my music, "your songs help the listener hear themselves." I think that's a nice way of putting it. I hope this music touches you and helps you hear yourself. I hope this music brings some peace and beauty into your life.
