Guatemalan-born/Los Angeles-based artist Gaby Moreno is an artist that hasn’t allowed anyone to put her in a corner stylistically. Gaby was awarded “Best New Artist” at the 2013 Latin GRAMMYS and has headlined tours in Latin America, US and Latin America. Moreno can never be accused of taking the safe path—but instead blazing her own. Embracing the style and ethos of jazz, folk and blues—with a healthy dose of romanticism—Moreno has found a visceral alchemy that is as moving in English as it is in her native language Spanish.
The Guatemalan songwriter Gaby Moreno plucked ragtimey syncopations on a well-worn acoustic guitar, and let loose a tangy, bluesy voice with the feistiness of Édith Piaf.
Moreno’s breathtaking voice is passionate and stylistically malleable, as she glides back and forth easily between bossa nova and bluesy rock.”
