Gabriel started making music more or less 15 years ago. Early influences were The Beatles, Elvis Presley and harder Rock groups like Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. In 1999 Gabriel formed the South African Hard Rock band, Maywar. Maywar received a lot of praise, especially since they were such a young band.

But as you journey through life, music tastes change and so did Gabriel's . Later on he beca
me influenced by Country and Southern Rock music and also some good Afrikaans music.

Living in the UK for a while, he was part of many Bands and Projects. Upon returning to South Africa, Gabriel joined the band, Juggernaught, for a while, before deciding to embark upon a solo career.

Playing various clubs, pubs, venues and functions throughout Gauteng, Gabriel started recording his own material in 2012. The first two tracks to be released from the sessions is the Country-twanged Rock song, 'Come On In" and the Afrikaans Partytime song "Die Boere Wil Braai" (The Farmers Wanna BBQ).

2013 will see the release of the Full album and promises to be a big year. Stay tuned.
