London-based singer/songwriter Marie Naffah returns with new single Gabriel. Her signature powerhouse vocals are accompanied by just a piano. It’s mellow, yet soulful. I really like the sound of this song.
Marie was inspired to write Gabriel after a chance encounter outside a church in Sussex. The singer/songwriter explains: “We’re always told not to talk to strangers, but I did, and it was marvellous. Before too long, Gabriel was sitting at my piano, playing everything from jazz to Joni Mitchell. It made me cry. This song is an ode to him, to Gabriel, and to the serendipity of meeting strangers. After a year defined by social distance, I hope the track can be an antidote for pandemic isolation and distrust.”
An inspiring message from Marie. It will definitely resonate with people. The singer/songwriter has her own style of music. That’s really cool to see. Check out Gabriel below!
