About

Born in Brazil and now studying in the best music school in the world, Gabriel launches his career with the new EP “Trustless”.

 

Gabriel is a guitarist born in São Paulo, Brazil. Picking up a guitar at the age of 5, Gabriel had a passion for rock music as a result of his parents playing Bon Jovi and AC/DC DVDs in the household.

 

He developed a taste for metal music after getting exposed to Metallica, and learned every song of their catalogue in the guitar. As years passed by and his skills developed, Gabriel decided to apply for Berklee College of Music, in 2016. He got accepted and is now experiencing this unique musical environment, where he is working on his debut EP “Trustless”.

 

Gabriel was born in São Paulo, Brazil.

 

He first picked up a guitar at the age of 5, after watching countless Bon Jovi DVDs in the living room. Gabriel’s first concert was in his birthday party, at age 8. Bon Jovi being his favorite band at the time, he played alongside an acoustic set with a well-renowned Bon Jovi cover from Brazil.

 In the next couple of years, Gabriel developed a taste for metal music, after getting exposed to Metallica. It was at age 13 that Gabriel knew that he wanted to become a live performer, after first seeing Metallica live.

 

Immersed in the band, Gabriel learned every single Metallica song, and started performing in his school assemblies, thus being recognized by his community.

In his senior year of high school, Gabriel organized, participated and won first place in a fund-raising talent show, in order to participate in the refurbishing of houses in the community of Heliópolis (a slum inside the city of São Paulo), promoted by Habitat For Humanity.

 

Tackling aspects such as marketing, production and music engineering, Gabriel quickly became interested in the business side of the music industry, and thus applied to Berklee College of Music, not only to major in Music Business, but to become a better musician and form a band, to work towards his ultimate goal: become the next generation’s metal guitarist.

 

Gabriel was accepted into Berklee in 2017, and is now tasting the extreme cold weather from Boston, something he did not experience in Brazil.

 

During his second semester at Berklee, Gabriel worked on writing his own music and lyrics, so he could have full songs to release during his summer holidays. The “Trustless” EP came to be at the end of May, after Gabriel recorded drums, guitars, bass and synths for the songs, as well as getting help of Cameron Lafond (a student at Berklee) to record vocals, and then mixed and mastered by Zach Munowitz  (a student at Berklee).
