Birds of Play with Gabrielle Louise

Birds of Play is a musical collaboration born from a mutual love of desert canyons, raging rivers, rocky mountaintops, and juice picnics.

After many years of gatherings that have revolved around adventuring by day and playing tunes around campfires by night, ‫the time has come for the birds to leave the nest and share their music with the world‪.With a dynamic mix of sentimentality and playfulness, Birds of Play’s original music will take you‪ on a joyous journey filled with tales of love lost and found, ballads of wild places, and the radical idea that being happy for no reason at all is reason enough. Add in an eclectic blend of covers and crowd-inclusive banter and an evening with Birds of Play will surely leave you feeling all the feelings and wanting more.‫

Influences include the Wood Brothers, Gregory Alan Isakov, Mandolin Orange, and so so many more

Gabrielle Louise is a songwriter and storytelling living in the mountains of Colorado. Half her time she’s touring and making records, and the other half she’s gardening, watercolor painting, and writing songs on her porch.

Her live show is honest, introspective and engaging. Gabrielle’s sound is anchored deeply in folk and Americana, but undeniably drawn to rich harmonies and melodic adventurism. She has the earthy feel of early Joni Mitchell while also veering into the spirited and versatile delivery of fellow genre-hopping artist Eva Cassidy.

The daughter of two vagabond musicians who toured the country in an old airstream trailer (children in-tow), Louise inherited the predisposition to wanderlust and song. She has been described “a modern day troubadour noted for her poignant lyrics and lush voice.”
 Known for her authenticity and candor on stage, Gabrielle is notably more soul than sparkle. Her performances are present and sincere, a professional presentation of her private creative world.

Her story-telling and banter enchants, gently enticing her listener to release their grip on the status quo. You’ll often find her reciting a poem, historical narrative, or a personal anecdote that’s woven into the musical performance as though it were also a number in the show. Perhaps because of this quality, Louise has been entrusted to share the stage with greats such as Richie Havens, Tom Paxton, Joan Osborne, Eliza Gilkyson, and Guy Clark.
