Gabrielle Papillon is one of those artists whose music is driven by her voice, lyrics and guitar. To call her simply a singer/songwriter would miss the point by leaving out a whole other dimension: the nostalgic distance and fragile aesthetics she brings vocally.
Her haunting new single, “Got You Well,” calls for attention from the very first note. Gabrielle’s strength lies in her poised vocal presence and preternatural ability to place the perfect melody in the perfect place. Her upcoming new album The Tempest Of Old captures the pick-up-and-play honesty in Gabrielle’s songwriting with each track being beautifully produced alongside a yielding sense of time and place. The album, performed by Gabrielle with unchecked passion spilling into her words on the commanding choruses, will be available for sale and download Friday, September 25th.
Until then, you can enjoy the beautiful “Got You Well”:
