Gabrielle Stravelli

Vocalist and songwriter Gabrielle Stravelli blends musical traditions with a modern, genre-bending sensibility. The rhythmic swing of jazz frames her original compositions while as an actor and storyteller she reinterprets the Great American Songbook as well as works by contemporary artists as varied as Willie Nelson, Chick Corea and John Fogerty. Unexpected, highly individual choices are her trademark. “Pick Up My Pieces: Gabrielle Stravelli Sings Willie Nelson,” released in 2019, is a jazz and blues exploration that mines Nelson’s catalog, from his earliest works to his most recent. The album’s release was celebrated with a sold out concert at the iconic Birdland Jazz Club and the album has received unanimous accolades from critics for All About Jazz, The Midwest Record, and a featured write-up in The Wall Street Journal
