New Music: Marie Naffah – Gabriel

Gabriel is the new track from British singer songwriter Marie Naffah. The follow up to California, a song we’ve also featured, it has a quieter, introspective vibe but Marie’s storytelling lyrics remain.

By Graeme Smith

In Gabriel, Marie is accompanied by a hymnal piano melody. Against it, she tells the story of an encounter with a stranger and the impact the meeting has, which feels like a religious experience. The lyrics paint the episode so clearly that it’s easy to see the events unfolding before your eyes as you listen, and there are some beautiful moments of poetry.

As a follow up to California, this track is a great way for Marie to show off her range and showcase her lyricism. I’m fast becoming a fan and I hope you will be too. Check out Gabriel below or via this link.
