“Gabriels’ sound is one that runs the gamut of Black American music history, aching with love and loss, all while swelling with hope…you should be paying attention.” The Guardian

“Gabriels have just five songs to their name, but one of them verges on the sublime.”—Rolling Stone

Breakout trio Gabriels are setting out on a select run of headline U.S. tour dates next year in support of their new EP, Bloodline, which is out now on Elektra. Kicking off on March 3 in San Francisco, the tour includes the group’s debut performances at New York’s National Sawdust and D.C.’s Songbyrd Music House before returning to Los Angeles for a show at the Troubadour. These dates will be followed by a run of sold-out shows at Glasgow’s King Tut’s, Manchester’s YES and London’s Lafayette as well as numerous U.K. performances with Celeste. Further 2022 dates will be announced soon, while the current tour routing can be found below.

Bloodline follows the group’s 2020 debut EP, Love & Hate In A Different Time, which was released to widespread acclaim. In August, Gabriels made their U.S. television debut on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” at the personal invitation of guest host Maren Morris, which followed their U.K. late night debut on “Later...With Jools Holland” in June.

Gabriels is acclaimed gospel singer and choir director Lusk and co-producers Ari Balouzia and Ryan Hope who are, respectively, also a classically trained musician/soundtrack artist and an established film director. Their music initially garnered attention abroad, leading to a record deal with Atlas Artists/Parlophone and support from Gilles Peterson, Celeste, Paul Weller, Benji B, Jungle, BADBADNOTGOOD, Virgil Abloh and Elton John, who branded their track “Love & Hate in a Different Time” as “one of the most seminal records I’ve heard in the last ten years.”

The group first came together in 2016 when Hope and Balouzian were working on a film together. In search of a choir for the project, they met Lusk in the casting sessions and instantly clicked. The trio spent the next five years cohesively redefining their sound while co-writing what ended up becoming Gabriels’ debut EP, Love & Hate In A Different Time.

Well established in the Los Angeles gospel community, Lusk has been singing since he was a child. Raised in an apostolic church he wasn’t permitted to listen to secular music, but on weekends his father would school him in jazz and artists such as Nat King Cole. In 2006, Lusk responded to a Craigslist advertisement looking for background singers to work with an unnamed rap artist and subsequently found himself in the studio with hip-hop icon Nate Dogg. Though that project was never released, Lusk continued to break ground as an artist, singing with Diana Ross at the Hollywood Bowl, collaborating with the likes of Beck and St. Vincent and appearing on American Idol where he worked with producers Rodney Jerkins and Tricky Stewart.
