Links to ‘Viens Ici’ and the ‘Experimental City’ CD

Experimental City is her third album ( While raised in the country, with hayfields, streams and quiet woods, the city voice of these recordings lie more in the imagination, in the tension/embrace of growing up firmly in country and living so much in city. Dedicated to everyone who came to my gigs and to the memory of Jeff Buckley at Sin-e.

Jane Gabriels is a poetess who possesses the liberation and lilt of a Montreal chanteuse. Gabriels is a storyteller crooning the images of heartache with bluesy sophisticated rhythms and a language to die for. There is a spirituality that bursts in each note – one that is hopeful, redemptive and all at once comforting, Gabriels lulls you with her Manhattan observations – so soulful if Edward Hopper could sing with words, he would be Jane Gabriels. What he does with light, she does with vocals — clarifying states of isolation with spiritual enlightenment.  Experimental City is inspiring.
