Paul Gabriel
Paul Gabriel
Paul Gabriel is a Blues Music Award nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter. In March 2018 Paul Gabriel was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Connecticut Blues Society for excellence in guitar playing, singing and songwriting; also for outstanding bandleader and entertainer.
In July 2018 he was inducted into the CT Blues Hall Of Fame
as a Master Blues Artist.
He has appeared on three Harry Chapin albums, played slide guitar on Rory Block’s Grammy nominated album, ‘Mama’s Blues’ and toured with Michael Bolotin (Bolton). His latest release, ‘Paul Gabriel- What’s The Chance’ was produced by Duke Robillard for Shining Stone Records and was nominated for a Blues Music Award in 2014. It charted for 22 weeks on The Roots Music Report, Living Blues Chart, Blues Debut Chart and Cashbox Charts, reaching #8 nationally and #1 in Connecticut.

While almost always performing with a Blues band under his own name, he has been a member of quite a few groups that always made the difference; most notably Blue In The Face, The Mojomatics and HooDoo Band. A new release is scheduled for the near future, featuring new original songs with a versatile format of Blues, Jazz
and Gospel inspired Rhythm and Blues.
