Welcome to BuzzMusic King Gabriel! How was it growing up in Kansas City? How would you describe the music scene there and how do you stick to your roots in your music?
Growing up in Kansas City, Kansas is definitely a unique place to experience, lots of memories made whether it was happy or painful. It helped me to see the world in a different light. Throughout most of my childhood, I moved around to many places from Arkansas to Arizona but my hometown is KCK. The music scence there is small but the people from there has lots of talent and skill. What helps me keep to my roots is always keeping my family and the things I've experienced in mind, I think about the people who helped me when I was down or the ones who couldn't believe they didn't have any other options. It's truly humbling when I look back on the things I've went through.
We noticed some powerful lyrics in your song “Emotions”. What was the concept behind this single? Can you describe to us what initially inspired you to make this song?
Emotions is addressing the good and bad thoughts people would have when experiencing or expressing love. The inspiration behind this single is the goals people want when finding love but also the toxic side that we might have after things dont go the right way.
What would you consider to be the most challenging aspect of creating “Emotions” and how did it help you grow you as an artist?
When I started writing, I had a very happy vibe for the track but then I got frustrated after the first draft because of a recent potential relationship that failed. As an artist, I've always liked to be very forward with my writing. Each song I've produced helps me when I feel a certain way or needed to be reminded me how far I've came.
When your song "Too Late" grew popular in Kansas City, how did that make you feel as an artist to get your music heard by people from your hometown?
It was an experience not many people could enjoy. Hearing my voice on the radio gave me hope that I could be heard and also inspire the ones around me that you can do the things you've always wanted through hard work.
What can fans anticipate next from you?
I'm currently working on visuals and expanding my sound. During 2020, I'm planning to do more collaborations for this ongoing project #NoSleepSeason. Stay tuned for more!
