New & Noteworhty: Gabriels – In Loving Memory

It’s been well over a year since we last heard from LA-based trio Gabriels, but with new single ‘In Loving Memory’, the silence has been broken! 

Gabriels is made up of lead singer Jacob Lusk and producers Ari Balouzian and Ryan Hope.

Led by Lusk’s warm, soulful vocals, and some equally fabulous twinkling keys and lush strings. It’s all topped off by some spellbinding operatic female vocals and the coolest of cool doo-wops thrown in for good measure; this is easily one of the best songs we’ve heard so far this year.

‘In Loving Memory’ follows their debut single ‘Loyalty’ which was released on the seminal R&S Records in December 2018 and garnered a lot of excitement, leading to features in both Prada and Calvin Klein TV campaigns. 

Jacob is a huge part of the LA gospel community, regularly leading worship and lending supporting vocals or choral arrangements to artists such as Diana Ross and Beck, while Ari and Ryan run the creative studio ‘Appraiser’ and recently scored two films at Sundance Festival. Buy here.
