- Running Man
Ollie Gabriel grew up in a family of artists, in small-town Louisiana. As a child, his ears were groomed by legendary soul men like Curtis Mayfield, Bobby Womack and Tyrone Davis. He was inspired to try every instrument he could get his hands on, after hearing his parents play their records. From drums, church organ, guitar, trombone, to playing in the school band and singing in church – Ollie did it all.
Crediting Michael Jackson and Classic Rock as one of his biggest early influences, as a kid, he knew he wanted to develop the power to emotionally move people with his stage presence, like Mick Jagger and Robert Plant.
That sonic diversity helped shape the artist he is today.
His music has been featured on major networks such as NBC, MTV, Fox and TNT. Most recently, his hit debut single "Running Man" was in ABC'S Grey's Anatomy. "Running Man" was released in Europe first and reached the top 10 in several countries. It has over 16.5 million streams on Spotify.
Ollie is currently prepping the release of his US debut. Lately he has been performing to sold out audiences at some of LA's hottest venues such as The Sayers Club, Hotel Cafe, The Mint, The Peppermint Club, and The Viper Room. His rare high energy performance style is quickly earning him a name. Music Connection Magazine listed him as one of the top live bands to see in 2017.
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
Without music, life would be a mistake.
If you don't feel it in your bones, it ain't soul!
Music is the greatest communication in the world. Even if people don't understand the language that you're singing in, they still know good music when they hear it.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
