Strings & Wood 7 Year Anniversary: Gabrielle Louise And Fy5 says
Sandalwood Records proudly announces the release of GABRIELLE LOUISE's "IF THE STATIC CLEARS”. Gabrielle Louise celebrates with a concert to be held at The Oriental Theater on Friday, November 11th. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, and are available online at the Doors will open at 6:30, and the concert begins at 7:00. This show marks the 7 year anniversary of presenter Strings & Wood Concerts, and the 7 year collaboration with The Gabrielle Louise Show.

To kick off the show an opening in-the-round set will be performed by Meredith Wilder, Brodie Kinder, and Justin Evan Thompson. Also appearing for a full set will be the celebrated Colorado bluegrass band, F Y 5.


“Eccentric, charismatic, thoughtful, literate and eclectic are just a few of the myriad words that can be used to describe GABRIELLE LOUISE. Words fail, however, to fully capture the wide-ranging emotional and musical landscape covered by the artist within her latest collection, "IF THE STATIC CLEARS", a blend of styles from hardy bluegrass and folk to slinky, seductive jazz. Accompanied by a dazzling collection of lyrics that run the gamut from sweetly intimate to boldly revealing, "IF THE STATIC CLEARS" is nothing less than a revelation, an essential Americana, folk-roots album.”
--Stephen Betts, contributor to Rolling Stone Country

“This type of music would be comfortable at the Grand Ole Opry, Austin City Limits and they wouldn’t get kicked off that old fogey classic Lawrence Welk Show either. It’s that’s diversified, satisfying and most importantly, good. ”
--John Apice, of No Depression magazine

And the songwriters-in-the-round?

"Thompson displays a poetic and knowing take on folk music that can be rousing as well as introspective and compelling."
--Weekly Alibi, Albuquerque

"The “Songbird of the Sandias.” It’s an appropriate moniker, given the appealing sweetness in Wilder’s voice, the transparency of her head tones, and her irresistible melodies.
-- Mel Minter, music critic

"His music is upbeat, infectious and the lyrics are as sweet as can be."
--Ali Lightfoot, Program Director for KVNF
