Gabriel Gonzalez is a musician and producer based in Galway. Over the past 18 years he has been part of multiple musical projects in Ireland as a flute player and guitar player and has toured Europe and USA with different musical projects.
From a musical family and trained as a classical musician from an early age this multi-instrumentalist has been very active composing and producing music for film and documentaries.
In April 2020 during the first lockdown in Ireland, when live music stopped all over the world, Gabriel decided to record and produce a number of tunes he had composed in recent years, creating this very intimate album called “Waiting for The Tide”. An album encapsulating the different emotions inspired by Galway and the West of Ireland.
He reached out to some musician friends he worked with in the past in many projects like Olas, Anna Mullarkey, Alalé, Baile An Salsa, Pulse, John Conneely Inc. and many more. They were able to send their magical collaborations to his small studio from different corners of the world. It was in his home studio during the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021 that Gabriel produced and arranged this collection of tunes. The finished album is called "Waiting for The Tide".
“This has been an adventure and a great experience. Music will always be the way to connect us all, even if we are far from each other.”
