“It’s like you say, we’re all just runaways, searching the eyes of the strangers we meet along the way. For the people we’ve been, for the people we’ll become. All along, looking out, we’re really looking in.”
These are the poetic lyrics from Runaways, the latest song by Gabriel Wolfchild and The Northern Lights. Sometimes, you come across a new artist whose genuine personality and energy shine through in their performance – Gabriel is the perfect example of that.
Gabriel, originally from Seattle, is a singer/songwriter on the rise, along with his band The Northern Light. You might remember Gabriel from his Voice audition, where he sang a beautiful rendition of Bob Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right, which earned him multiple chair turns. When I was approached to check out his music video for Runaways and after listening to it, I knew I wanted to share more here. Check out the song and video below, I think you’re really going to like what you see and hear:
The music video is just as gorgeous as the song, and it’s a song that is so needed at this moment in time – his voice, the lyrics, and the message are so beautiful. His skill for poetic storytelling combined with his guitar playing shows that he’s a true artist. Take a moment, and treat yourself to this track.

It started with Elion, Robert, Lūk Will and I just hanging out at the busking stage, and casually singing songs. I look up and suddenly there is a stand up bass player, and then John Sinclair of #saintclaire shows up and starts making his violin sing… All of a sudden there is a crowd of 70 to 80 people looking back at us! And we where all like -WHAAAAAAT!? I think this is what they call #doebaymagic #doebayfest9 #doebaydoebay #doebay #doebayfest #doebay @roberteleeseattle @elion_truth_heart @lukrescuemission @realsaintclaire PC @whitney_lyman
