Biography

Gabriel Mann had the good fortune of opening for Alanis Morissette's European tour in April 2005 (including a sold-out show for 10500 at Rotterdam's Ahoy) and for Glenn Tilbrook (Squeeze) in the US in May. Mann's music has been compared to The Police, John Mayer and Elvis Costello. Songs on the new album range from the quirky Elton John-meets-Maroon 5 "OK Alone," to the anthemic "Undertow," and the sad-sweet cello and vocal heartbreaker, "When We Are One."

Gabe's forceful piano playing is backed by Carson Cohen on bass and Adam Marcello on drums, and an array of guest vocalists and musicians. His fans have packed shows ranging from solo performances at intimate venues like Hollywood's legendary Hotel Cafe to opening slots with full band for international artists such as Jamie Cullum across North America. He has developed a large and loyal fan base because of his intensely personal yet universal lyrics, hook-laden melodies, an undeniable voice and winning, dry humor.

Mann's talents have been put to use on various film and TV projects, including his current stint as resident songwriter for Fox's Emmy-winning series Arrested Development and many songs featured on MTV's Road Rules and Real World.

Radio & Records recently celebrated Mann's emergence into the spotlight by naming him one of their Artists to Watch for 2005.
