"HITS Magazine"

L.A.-based indie artist Gabriel Mann, a remarkably talented, young pop craftsman whose soaring voice elevate his Peter Gabriel-like tunes to high drama... - Mike Morrison

"Los Angeles Times"

Stop at a local Borders in the next month or so, and you're liable to see Gabriel Mann, whose album "Tug of War" was released last week. Mann's trio is being promoted as part of a special program called "Under the Radar," a joint project by the chain and an independent A&R firm. - Kevin Bronson, Susan Carpenter, Steve Baltin

"Music Connection"

"Sometimes you have to just go out and begin to create your own luck." This forthright attitude toward their career has quietly elevated Gabriel Mann to heights which, only several years ago, seemed like a pipe dream. Additionally, an aggressive approach has landed the band airplay on Chris Douridas' KCRW/AOL Session's program. - Scott Dudelson

"Radio & Records (R&R)"

Remember this name: Gabriel Mann. He’s coming out with a new album this year, and I will be so bold as to say that he could be the format’s [Hot AC's] hottest new artist in 2005. - Julie Kertes


Especially expressive was 2003's USA Songwriting Competition Grand Prize Winner "Lighted Up," which came across as both dynamic and moving, with excellent vocal work - both lead and backup. It definitely demonstrated the influence of Peter Gabriel's writing and singing. Gabriel's voice was in great shape throughout the night, and he pulled off some impressive vocal runs, while also being able to stay grounded in the more intimate parts of the set. - Elly K

Southern exposure

The South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, gives more than 1,200 bands the chance to make it big, says Paul Sexton

The Continental check-in lounge at Gatwick last week was crammed with bleary British musicians on their way to the best little gig-house in Austin, Texas. For me, the South by Southwest music festival got underway when I boarded a plane alongside Bloc Party, Breed 77 and the Raveonettes, and ended four nights later in a postage-stamp venue, where a singer I'd never heard of strummed on the window-ledge and sang like an angel.

And the stranger on the window-ledge? Gabriel Mann, singing sweet and funky soul in a tiny spot off Congress. We'll all be able to hear his voice soon, as he supports Alanis Morissette on her UK shows next month. - The Independent

The main thing you should know about Gabriel Mann is that he's a good guy. The next thing you should know is that he writes and performs his songs while retaining a sense of humor, a grip on reality, and a need for honesty. His songs are both intensely personal and universal, intricate, yet catchy. Mann truly sounds like no one else, at once gentle and breathy, and in the next moment soaring and powerful.

Mann has done just about everything there is to do in the music world, including composing scores for video games and TV shows. He produced Sara Bareilles' Careful Confessions, wrote songs for Fox's Arrested Development, opened for Alanis Morissette's European tour and for Jamie Cullum here in the States, sang all the island fare in Office Space, and opened for the Rolling Stones while playing with Tim Burgess. Somewhere in there he finds time to make his own records.
Mann's songs have been licensed to many TV shows and films, and garnered several awards, including the Overall Grand Prize in the 2003 USA Songwriting Competition for "Lighted Up." Radio & Records named Gabriel one of their "Artists to Watch for 2005," and he's one of Music Connection's top 100 Unsigned Artists in Los Angeles. Most recently, he won the Just Plain Folks Awards 2nd prize in the College Rock Album category (out of over 25000 albums).
Mann's first record came out in 1999, and his fifth, a full-length album of all new material, will be released early 2007.
