Gabriel Rios – Gold
Gabriel Rios, born in Puerto Rico, moved to Belgium at age 17 to study painting, where he formed and transformed various bands before locating to NYC in 2011. His minimalist approach to singing and songwriting led him to a subtle stay of performances at Rockwood Music Hall, where he met a contrabassist Ruben Samama, and his cellist wife, Amber Docters van Leeuwen. The trio was formed and produced under Ruben, but bears frontman and songwriter Gabriel’s name. The song “Gold” comes off of Gabriel’s fourth album, This Marauder’s Midnight.
