news

We recently spoke with Gaby Moreno at te 2011 Latin Alternative Conference, where we had met her about a year ago.  We have followed her career since, even attending a live performance here in NYC, where Gaby brought down the house - with a song in Spanish!  Thus no surprise that her new album, Illustrated Songs, includes tunes in Spanish and English.

biography
Gaby Moreno’s new album, Illustrated Songs, continues her love affair with the sounds of the blues, soul and jazz that captivated her as a girl. Although she was born and raised in Guatemala, it was the sounds of the American South that inspired her to become a songwriter and recording artist. “I heard an African American woman singing on the street in New York City when I was younger. I just froze. When I asked her what she called that music, she looked at me and said, ‘That’s the blues, honey.’”
