Artist Name: GABE
Label: Brainwork Productions LLC




"GABE - The Memoirs" http://www.mediafire.com/download/whv2zp9jw40ja7f/GABE-+The+Memoirs+%282012%29.zip

Gabe Lustman, better known as GABE, born originally from New Orleans, LA, the birthplace of Jazz and a great mixture of music, but currently resides in Atlanta, GA.

Humming and singing melodies before he could talk, a sure indication of the direction his life was headed for.

Traveling around the world with his family gave GABE a great perspective to different cultures, rhythms and styles. The more he travel the more he learned. His late father was a career Navy man who loved the sounds of The Temptations, The Who and The Beatles, to name a few. GABE says, "Listening to the pioneers of Pop/ R&B/ Rock influences was captivating, uplifting and gave me a desire for expression."
During his elementary years, GABE was so intrigued with music that he joined the school choir to pursue further vocal training.

After performing in a 9th grade talent show, GABE decided to pursue a career in singing. He spent 6 hours a day in the bathroom with cassette tapes dubbed from his Dads CD's and Radio listening to The Temptations, The Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, Michael Jackson, Prince, 98 degrees and Usher.

During high school sporting events, GABE sang The National Anthem in front of student faculty and peers. In 2006 he had his first collaboration with Minneapolis Producer Ricky Oyaro and was introduced to studio recording.

GABE has been tagged as a genius at work. While pursuing his career he met Minneapolis Pop Group LS3. While rehearsing with GABE singing lead to one of LS3 songs acapella on the rooftop set of MTV's Top Pop Group, Craig Ferguson overheard them singing and sent his Executive Producer "Cole" out to ask them if they would be the musical guest to the Craig Ferguson Late Late Show on CBS.

From there this fantastic ride took him to collaborate with J.R. Rotem (Beluga Heights), Kay Gee (Divine Mill), Jai (Nextwun) at this point it was felt that GABE should be a solo artist, that's when the persona of GABE really appeared.

As a solo artist, GABE had gained a wide audience of listeners, spectators and attendees to attend his live shows and global appeal worldwide. This prolific artist has been on tour with Chris Brown, Trey Songz and Cherish.

GABE songs have been aired on radio in Minneapolis, Atlanta and Michigan.

GABE has appeared on internet radio stations here in America as well as France, London, Australia and many others stations.

GABE has performed at Georgia State University, First Ave (Minneapolis), Café 290 (Atlanta) and released a mix tape with the help of production team JDP Productions, recorded "The Take Off," (2010) selling 2000 copies independently in the first week and shortly after following up with "State Of Emergency" (2011) accumulating over 100,000 downloads in the first month of release. His most recent mix tape "The Memoirs" (2012) is currently circulating the web on varies Music Blogs & Youtube.

GABE brands all of his songs by writing all of his own lyrics and melodies. Working with him is a musicians dream.
