Biography

At 22 I have packed more suitcases than the pope, said hello and goodbye more than I care for, & discovered the world really isn't flat.
It all started in Denmark where I was born. Soon, the family was off to Switzerland, Czech Republic, England, Germany and finally California. In those years of traveling I met intelligent, wise, lovable and strange people, & fell in love with stories.
I spent hours absorbing events & emotions of others & came to a bursting point of wanting to create my own identity. At a young age, I started writing songs. It has been the one activity in my life that stops time, & gives me ultimate satisfaction.
I was always somehow involved in choirs, theatre arts, & shows growing up, but coming to California was the beginning of my career as a singer songwriter. I teamed up with incredible musicians, & was thrust into a wild cyclone of performing coffeehouses & clubs in LA, & writing music.
Recently, I completed my acoustic CD 'Gabrielle Live in the Studio,' teaming up with Ronen Gordon, a phenomenal drummer, who's insight and musical ear has been invaluable, on this project. We continue to work together on my music.
Currently, I am playing shows, and I hope to expand as an artist. Every chance I get to listen and learn from another, fuels my desire for music.

Thanks for listening to the beginning of my story, please stay tuned!


Lyrics

Closing Time

Written By: Gabrielle

Out go the lights &
Fear of the night
Crawls beneath my skin

My coat of armor
Left by the window &
The memory of you creeps in
I remember your laugh
Like a heart autograph
It hurts to this day
When the clock strikes Closing Time

Damn your pride
Damn mine
Tell me what good ever came of it
I hope someday
We'll meet at a crossroad
Say goodbye to the troubles we found

But now the curtains' been closed
And I long for you the most
It hurts to this very day
When the clock strikes Closing Time

Please remember me, because I still care
Please don't forget me now, because I still care

By the dawn of the night
I really don't want the fight
I want the pain to leave
When the clock strikes Closing Time

Happiness

Written By: Gabrielle

Been counting cracks on the walls
Picture perfect means nothing at all
So I ran for miles to a place in my head
California came to me instead

Beneath the palm tree glory
& the dreams for sale
The beggars story & the desert veil
I've been looking for

Happiness
I won't settle for less
Happiness
My one and only bliss
& a sweet melody
That takes me away

Well nothing is ever what it seems
Round & round I'd go in my storybook dream
With a grain of salt I hit the ground
True living that’s what I found

The colors of life used to color me blind
But when I open my heart open my mind I got

Happiness
I won't settle for less
Happiness
My one and only bliss
& a sweet melody
That takes me away

I'm gonna make a change
Let me get up from where I lay

Happiness, Happiness
Round & Round & Round I go
Looking for that feeling of wonderful
Happiness
That feeling of happiness
& a sweet melody
That takes me away

Good Get

Written By: Gabrielle

My baby love
He told me so by the break of dawn
My baby needs me
He likes the feel of my heartstring on his sleeve
I know he loves me

Many nights I'd wait
Like a frozen seed
For you touch to warm up the core of me

Good Get, oh Good Get
Right on time
Good Get, this is it
Here I draw the line
Good Get of mine

Deep in my forest
Feeling like a fish out of the water
I never believed
I’d find home in the heart of another man
Someone who'd understand

Upon my blue moon
You came so soon
Bold as the sun to shine down on me

Good Get, oh Good Get
Right on time
Good Get, baby this is it
Here I draw the line

Good Get of mine
Sweet darling of mine

My baby loves me
My baby needs me

Bridge & Stone

Written By: Gabrielle

In a day full of sound
I come home with it
Hanging around my head
I catch my breath for a second or two
Before I let it all of on you
You're the only one who understand

I've burned castles in the past
Felt the pain when it didn't last
Yet here I stand
Proud with the one & only man

You're my Bridge & Stone
You're the road that carries me home
I want to thank you baby
For every day you give me
You're my bridge & stone

I've got the roar of a lion in me
Somehow you tame me completely
We share a cup filled to the top
With you there's solid ground below
With you there is a world that can grow

Bridge & Stone baby
When it's said and done
You carry me home
I want to thank you baby
For everyday you give me

It's between me and you

Bridge & Stone
Carry me home

I want to go easy
Said I want to go easy into your arms
You’re my Bridge & Stone

Love Me Some Of You

Written By: Gabrielle

I like the cold rain on my skin
Black coffee with cinnamon in
I burn for starlit, moonlit nights
A blessing in disguise

I had good times on the edge of life
The rhythm of my heart beats strong alone
But all my sweet revelations turn to dust
Thinking of how I got

My pockets full of roses now
That’s how it is when you come around
Never thought a single night could change my life
Be a blessing in disguise

I 've got two hand made for loving you
A woman in love and that’s the truth
Can't turn on back the tide
My cup overflows with love

I Love Me Some Of You
You know I love
Love Me Some Of You baby
Every night I want you here by my side
Come on baby tell me what's on your mind
I Love, Love Me Some Of You
Baby I'd Love, Love Me Some Of You

I don't care if it's right or wrong
I lost all my control
It feels so good to me

I love, love me some
Love, love me some of you
Come stay by my side
Won't you say what's on you mind

I'd Love, Love Me Some Of You
I love you.

CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE

Written By: Gabrielle


Take the ribbon from my eyes
I want to see the face of your disguise
Lately, I've been caught up on a string
Do I keep loving your shadow or give up the mystery

Well I've been caught in the Middle for hours now
Caught in the Middle for hours now

All twenty four hours in a day
I feel you whisper sweet words to me
You light my spine on fire
But in the deep of night I loose my desire
& I've been

Caught in the Middle for hours now
Caught in the Middle and there's no way out

It seems to me
Time has a lease on my heart
& I'll pay the cost
In the absence of your love

But the mask you wear
Makes it hard to bear
Looking in you eyes
From one day to another
I don't know if its truth or lies

I've been Caught in the Middle for hours now
Caught in the Middle and there's no way out.

Yes I've been caught in the Middle
I've been caught in the Middle for hours now

So take the ribbon from my eyes
I want to see

Make me over

Written By: Gabrielle


If I could be made over
I'd jump on board that train
Feel my heels burning as the wheels
Keep on turning
If I could be made over I'd
Take you by my willow tree
Pride aside lay down
& give up every part of me

No mercy in an hour glass
Through shadows & blame even time will pass
I spun a web unhealthy
I've been asking the wind to blow
Sense my way

Make Me Over by the morning light
Take the storm that came with the night
Unravel what's come undone now
Make Me Over as I'm standing bare
Till it's done, I'll be standing here
Make Me Over

Daddy always told me.
He said watch make your flowers grow
Somewhere along the line fear of living
Turned my roses into stone

Well the dust has been circling around
Like an eagle over my golden crown
Silently waiting for the girl to open her door and say

Make Me Over by the morning light
Catch my feather it went with the night
I'm ready to come undone now
Make Me Over as I'm standing bare
Till it's done I’ll be standing here
Make Me Over

No mercy in an hour glass
Through shadows and blame even time will pass
My reflection may stay the same
Oh but the fire burns to win

Make Me Over by the morning light
Catch my feather it went with the night
Unravel what's come undone now
Make Me Over as I'm standing bare
Till it's done, I'll be standing here

Make Me Over
By the morning light
Make Me Over
Till the morning light
Won't you make me
Come on & Make Me Over
Make Me Over

Favorite Love Thing

Written By: Gabrielle


I would like to ask a few questions
Where you're from, have you any relations?
You make it so strangely exciting
Did God dip you in golden paint?

You’re my Favorite Love Thing
You're my Favorite Love Thing
Your kisses are enchanting
Thoughts of you keep me smiling
You’re my Favorite Love Thing

Come to think of it would you unfold me?
Cherish my imperfections and hold me?
I'm sure I've known you for many lifetimes
When you speak your voice soothes me like wind chimes

You’re my Favorite Love Thing
You're my Favorite Love Thing
Your kisses are enchanting
Thoughts of you keep me smiling
You’re my Favorite Love Thing

I can't believe you happened to me
My fire burns for you solely
I can't believe you happened to me
You're all that I could ever need

You’re my Favorite Love Thing
You're my Favorite Love Thing
Your kisses are enchanting
Thoughts of you keep me smiling
You’re my Favorite Love Thing

I'd like to ask a few questions
Now that you're here what are your intentions?
Am I really this lucky to have you
To be in arms of someone who just loves you

Walk by the river

Written By: Gabrielle

Walk by the river
Walk by the river with me
Hallelujah baby
Here's your chance to be free

I know life can bring you down
But you can turn it around
Right or wrong is a state of mind
Seek and you shall find

Walk by the river
Take a walk by the river with me
Go on walk by the river
Walk yourself free

A child undone
Sitting by the side of the ride
Smiles to the sun
Because all the while she knows
Her dreams grow from one
One grain of sand
She says 'right now I'm lost but I'm sure
Someday I'll understand'

That’s when I'll
Walk by the river
Walk my soul to the sea
I'm going to walk by the river
Walk till I am free

I'll walk by the river
Walk my soul to the sea
I'm going to walk
I'll take my soul all the way to the sea
I'm going to
Walk by the river
