"It's beyond exciting to hear an ascending artist reach that space where all her potential has finally come together. It all adds up to a statement that sets a bold course for a musical vision with no limitations."

Gaby Moreno

Born and raised in Guatemala, Los Angeles based Gaby Moreno grew up inspired by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, and Aretha Franklin.  She immersed herself in blues, R&B and 60's Soul and learned to speak English by singing the songs she loved. Her original blend of Jazz, Blues and 1960s Rock & Soul has earned her the respect and appreciation of audiences in Latin America, Europe and U.S. In 2013, she received a Latin GRAMMY for Best New Artist.  Previously in 2006, she won the Grand Prize at the John Lennon Songwriting Contest.  Moreno also co-wrote the theme song for NBC's hit television show "Parks and Recreation". Gaby Moreno has toured across the globe alongside artists like Tracy Chapman, Ani DiFranco, Ricardo Arjona, Van Dyke Parks, The Punch Brothers and Calexico.  Most recently she performed at David Byrne's Meltdown Festival in London and Washington DC's Kennedy Center, and has been part of the "Celebrating David Bowie" world tour. Gaby is currently touring in support of her new record "Ilusion" (released September 9, 2016). Ilusion was produced by Gabriel Roth from Daptone Records and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings camp. Armed with a warm, soulful horn inflected sound- Moreno creates a unique lane of music that straddles both the English and Spanish speaking world and blazes an intoxicating invitation into her musical world.
