Gabrielle is unique. She’s unique as an artist, with that instantly familiar shimmery voice and those tender-tough lyrics and way of phrasing that makes every song feel deeply intimate. And she’s unique as a “star,” in the sense of having achieved a great deal without becoming an in-your-face, look-at-me “celebrity.”

Gabrielle’s career got off to an incredible start in 1993 when she broke the record for the highest chart debut by a female with the single ‘Dreams’ (it went in at 2, before rising to Number 1). 

In 2000 Gabrielle notably returned to the charts with the hit single Rise, which featured a Bob Dylan sample of ‘Knocking on Heavens Door’ (that he cleared himself after hearing the song) and again reached the number one spot. The multi-platinum album ‘Rise’ followed in the same footsteps and topped the charts at number one.

In an industry where longevity is becoming increasingly rare, the hits have been unstoppable: ‘Give Me A Little More Time’, ‘If You Ever’, ‘When A Woman’, ‘Sunshine’ and ‘Out Of Reach’ which she wrote for the soundtrack of Bridget Jones’ Diary. Then there are the multi-platinum albums; ‘Gabrielle’ ‘Rise’ and ‘Dreams Can Come True’.

It’s no surprise this success has seen Gabrielle pick up a number of prestigious awards over the years. Brit Awards for Best Newcomer and Best Female Vocalist, MOBOs for Best Single and Best Album, an Ivor Novello for Outstanding Song Collection and Gabrielle appeared with not just one but two albums in the official UK 100 records of the decade. 

That’s why the likes of Daft Punk and Talvin Singh have chosen to remix her work, rock legend Paul Weller recorded a duet with her, soul legend Al Green chose her to appear as his special guest on his UK tour, Prince asked her to join him on stage at his Formula 1 concert in Abu Dhabi and multi-platinum songstress Adele revealed she used to wear an eyepatch and impersonate Gabrielle who was one of her favourite singers growing up.

Gabrielle featured on Naughty Boy’s album Hotel Cabana alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Emeli Sande. Naughty Boy is a huge fan and tracked Gabrielle down via her publishers.

2013 - Gabrielle released a 7th album with the iconic Island records. A double album of all her greatest hits, some of her favourite album tracks and 7 brand new songs. With the new songs came a new sound, the album titled Now and Always 20 Years of Dreaming also includes a new version of the classic Dreams re produced and re recorded by Naughty Boy

2014 - saw Gabrielle go on her first UK tour since 2008, with a new band, new team and new energy she loved being back on stage and had reignited her passion for performing live. The Now and Always tour was a huge success and Gabrielle felt re connected with her fans, at every show she could be seen taking selfies from the stage with audience members, as Gabrielle said herself “you may have to push me onto the stage as I do get nervous but you will have to pull me off as I never want it to end”

2016 - Gabrielle hit the road as special guest opening for Michael Bolton on his UK tour. The Nottingham post wrote in one review “ Taking to the stage with only 2 backing singers, a guitarist and drummer, the enigmatic Gabrielle opened proceedings with When A Woman, proving that she has lost none of her vocal range as her voice soared around the auditorium. Her acoustic set rose to a crescendo with the hits Sunshine, Rise, Out Of Reach before she left the stage to rapturous applause after delivering a powerful Dreams”
