Concert Details


We are sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances Gabriel Royal has had to cancel this performance. We hope to welcome Gabriel back on another occasion.


On route to London Jazz FestivalBrooklyn busking sensation Gabriel Royal performs a special intimate concert at Swing.

It takes a while for Gabriel Royal’s musical style to strike you. His songs build up slowly, the arrangements between his singing and cello playing pulling you in and… you are hooked.

It took Gabriel five years busking on the New York city subway to finally get noticed and have his first album recorded.

Influenced by Stevie Wonder’s groove to Burt Bacharach relaxed, jazzy yet poppy sensitivities, including outcast contemporary artists such as John Legend, Hiatus Coyote, Flying Lotus, James Blake, Jangle Monae and Thundercat, Gabriel’s trademark sound is his singing over a cello, the result being a easy listening modern chamber pop.
