Gabe Hess is a singer/songwriter, composer, and arranger based out of the Pacific Northwest. Gabe first began working in the music industry during his college years, performing in clubs in Boise Idaho with several different bands and collaborations. After college, Gabe moved to New York City where he spent a year training with the improvisational school, The Upright Citizen’s Brigade. Gabe attended classes by day and made ends meet by playing music in a variety of settings each night. New York provided the perfect backdrop for a young musician, cutting his teeth by busking in the subways of Manhattan and he eventually began performing in clubs and coffee houses all over the city, where they had indoor heat.
After a year of honing his craft, music took center-stage and Gabe moved to Portland Oregon where he decided to pursue full-time his music career. In 2018, Gabe released his first EP titled “Working” which was comprised of an eclectic group of original songs spiced with styles from country to classic soul.
At present, Gabe is working towards recording his first full-length album which is yet untitled. The album will feature his own blend of R&B originals. An accomplished musician, Gabe plays guitar, piano, bass, saxophone, mouth trumpet (it's a thing!) and sings like his soul means it!
In addition to working on his upcoming album, Gabe also keeps busy as an arranger and featured vocalist for the commercial music industry. Most recently partnering with Hitlist Music, with whom he has already recorded and arranged over 20 cover tunes to be used in television and feature films.
Gabe adapts his performances to suit a variety of settings from large public events and festivals to more intimate settings...but in every case...he brings the love!
