Biography

Buck Moon features the songwriting and singing of Gabrielle Agachiko, who returns to the Boston music scene after a decade in the Massachusetts countryside. Gabrielle's songs reflect thr journey from her home in Kenya, through an education in England, conservatory studies in New York, jazz gigs in Paris and dues-paying in the Boson rock world. Her lyrics are poetic, smart and thoughtful; her vocals can soar, sooth or sear, by turn, remaining always impassioned and straight from the heart.

Gabrielle achieved a measure of notoriety in the early 90's with 'The Atom Said', whos guitarist Reeves Gabrels left the band for David Bowie's 'Tin Machine'. Now in Buck Moon, she collaborates with guitarist Jeff Friedman, a world-class arranger with Carla Bley, Steve Swallow and others, and a player who knows no boundaries between rock, jazz and soul. The bedrock-solid and propulsive rhythm section consists of versatile bassist Paul Engle and drummer Brett Campbell, the powerhouse behind Boston's lounge-surf-psychedelic quintet Seks Bomba
