Gaby Moreno – Adams Avenue Unplugged Headliner Concert – $15

Saturday, April 27 5:00 – 6:15 PM Normal Height United Methodist Church

 

Guatemalan Gaby Moreno is an award-winning singer and songwriter whose music encompasses a broad spectrum of genres, from blues and jazz to pop, R&B, soul, and Latin folk styles. She sings in both Spanish and English, and calls her more recent sound “Spanglish folk soul.”

After graduating high school, she moved to the United States and attended the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, where she met her bassist and drummer and began performing live. She entered her song “Escondidos” in the 2006 John Lennon Songwriting Contest and won the competition. She followed it by self-producing her debut album, Still the Unknown, in 2008. The recording was given play by KCRW and gained notice from National Public Radio as well, leading to her opening slots on national tours for Tracy Chapman and other artists.

In 2010 she issued her sophomore album, Illustrated Songs, and also co-composed the instrumental theme song for the television series Parks and Recreation, winning an Emmy nomination. Subsequently, her original music was used in a handful of other television shows. That summer she performed with Van Dyke Parks at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark in a program of Latin American music, calypso, and Americana songs. In 2011 she sang on the Ricardo Arjona hit song “Fuiste Tu,” and followed it with her third album, Postales, in 2012. She won a Latin Grammy for Best New Artist in 2013. That same year she sang on Hugh Laurie’s second full-length, Didn’t It Rain, subsequently touring with him across the United States, Europe, Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina.

On her own, Moreno issued the 2014 Christmas album Posada, which included bilingual seasonal songs, hymns, and carols from a variety of traditions. She stayed busy headlining tours for a year and a half, including her own Festival Acústico: Gaby Moreno y Amigos in Latin America, Europe, and the United States, before reentering the recording studio. Her pre-release single was issued simultaneously in Spanish as “Se Apagó” and in English as “Love Is Gone” (the latter with special guest Jonny P) in July of 2016, in conjunction with the release of her singing the title theme for the Disney film Elena of Avalor. Ilusión, her fifth album, was released in September of that year.
