The Honest Love (2009) - Dreamt Music / Facedown Records




It is obvious that Abel, a three piece from Poughkeepsie, NY, live and breath music. From their soaring guitars to the dramatic progressions that inhabit their songs, Abel allows soulfulness to reign supreme. Writing from a profoundly compassionate place, the band creates music that is drenched in empathetic lyrics and infectious choruses. Abel has captured the heart of the indie movement by equipping the honesty in their creativity, and they are careful to let themselves be led by that honesty.

Abel's Dreamt Music / Facedown Records debut, The Honest Love, was released on September 1, 2009.
