Alex Paul & Gabrielle Louise

Join singer-songwriters Alex Paul and Gabrielle Louise as they co-present an evening of music at the Sherbino. 

 

Alex is an Ophir-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with a playful, insightful approach to music and composition. Born and raised in Colorado, his musical stylings reflect his approach to living a vibrant, positively silly life.

He’s been performing solo and with a number of band projects throughout the Western United States for the last decade. His most recent endeavor is the acoustic Americana trio, Birds of Play, formed after his narrow victory in the 2018 Blues Challenge at the Telluride Blues and Brews Fest.

With a diverse repertoire of original material and a contagious energy to his live performance, Alex will bring you into his musical world for as long as you’d like to attend. He also likes soup, and could talk, or not talk, for hours.

Gabrielle Louise is a nationally touring troubadour noted for her poignant lyrics and lush voice. The daughter of two vagabond musicians, Gabrielle inherited the predisposition to wanderlust and song.
Gabrielle Louise's music is anchored deeply in folk and Americana, but undeniably drawn to rich harmonies and melodic adventurism. Her sound has the earthy feel of early Joni Mitchell while also veering into the spirited and versatile delivery of fellow genre-hopping artist Eva Cassidy. Unafraid to take a musical escapade in the name of inspiration, Gabrielle is at one moment folkie and ethereal, the next a smoky jazz chanteuse.

Known for her authenticity and candor on stage, Gabrielle's performances are notably present and sincere, a professional presentation of her private creative world. Her story-telling and banter envelopes and enchants, gently enticing her listener to release their grip on the status quo. 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.
