Gabe Simon, writer and former frontman of indie-rock band Kopecky, has begun a new project under the name Mr Gabriel. He tells Lt. Dan, “I think with Mr. Gabriel, I want to be everything I can’t be in every part of my life.” Check out “Tambourine”, and “Millennial Falcon” – half middle school love-song to Zoey Deschanel and half social media critique. Simon’s been busy co-writing with the likes of Lucie Silvas and Natalie Hemby, and getting cuts from Jai Wolf, Dua Lipa, COIN, American Authors, Cherub, and more. Hear all about Simon’s passion for whistling and listen to his acoustic performance of an upcoming release, “Carry On” – a “coming of age” song inspired by falling in love with his wife in NYC.
