ONE OF THE FINEST, MOST SEARCHING SONGWRITERS OF THE DAY
Gabriel’s latest album Book Of Travelers (Nonesuch) is receiving fantastic critical acclaim everywhere.

The day after the 2016 presidential election, singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane boarded a train at Penn Station and traveled 8,980 miles around the continental U.S. with no phone or internet access, talking to dozens of strangers in an attempt to better understand his country and fellow citizens. The resulting album, Book of Travelers, marks Gabriel’s debut for Nonesuch Records. By turns sprawling and intimate, this collection of songs is at once a prayer for empathy and reconciliation, as well as an unflinching examination of the complex and often troubled history of the United States.

Gabriel has collaborated with many artists including Sufjan Stevens, Andrew Bird (he recently orchestrated and co-performed an evening for him with the Los Angeles Philharmonic), Chris Thile, Paul Simon and many orchestras and chamber music ensembles.
