Reeves Gabrels, a world-class American musician, an innovative guitarist who also sings, writes songs and composes soundscapes. He joined The Cure, a distinctive and successful post-punk rock band, in 2012 and is known as well for his partnership with David Bowie from 1987 through 1999. A co-founder of the rock band Tin Machine with David Bowie, Tony Sales and Hunt Sales, Gabrels went on to work closely with Bowie as guitarist and a co-writer for Outside (1995) and as guitarist, co-writer and co-producer for Earthling (1997) and Hours (1999). Gabrels was Bowie's guitarist and music director across a dozen years of touring, including for a Bowie tour with Nine Inch Nails, and for Bowie’s 50th birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden.
"one of the most daring rock-guitar improvisers since Jimi Hendrix" (Ted Drozdowski for Guitar.com). Each song is its own adventure when Reeves and friends perform. One Gabrels lyric says it all: "Let me bend your ear, and your mind a little too."
The 2017 release Imaginary Friends Live is Gabrels' sixth album as featured guitarist and vocalist supported by superb musical colleagues. He also made two improvisatory guitar-duo albums, one with Bill Nelson of Be-Bop Deluxe fame and the other with David Tronzo who currently teaches at Boston's Berklee College of Music. Gabrels also composes film, television and video-game soundtracks. A sought-after collaborator, he has written, performed and recorded with musicians in genres from heavy metal to hip-hop to electronica to jazz.
