New Music: Gabriel Wolfchild and The Northern Light

“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.

Gabriel’s debut EP, Mornings Like These, is set for release in January 2017, and is produced by Eric Lilavois (Saint Motel, Atlas Genius) and recorded at the famed London Bridge Studios. Many of the tracks off of the EP were written as an expression of a deep love with a past partner, “a relationship that encompassed every season of change, a beautiful storm, with these songs being the dove in the darkness,” something many of us can relate to.Be on the lookout for more of Gabriel, and don’t forget to check him out on Twitter and Facebook, too. Let me guys know what you think of this song!
