San Gabriel: “Castles”

It’s safe to say that 2022’s started off strong with the year’s first Artist of the Month, San Gabriel. Seasoned multi-instrumentalist James Bookert only recently started releasing solo recordings after longstanding stints with Wild Child and Whiskey Shivers but his uniquely uplifting pop style has already laid out an impressive and accessible brand. San Gabriel just gifted us with a shop-shot live set (available below) and plays every Friday in February at High Noon. That video session gives a sneak peak into San Gabriel’s debut full-length (out this fall) while packaging retro percussion, heavy vocal reverb, and killer chord progressions into exciting originals like “Castles”!
