Recap: Atlanta's AIM HIGH Album Release Show by Shanelle Gabriel

If you live in Atlanta and didn't come out last week to celebrate the release of my album AIM HIGH at Acoustix Bar & Lounge's S.M.A.R.T. Thursdays, YOU MISSED OUT! It was an awesome night with so many great people in the building. Eshe from the 90s group Arrested Development killed the stage, singer/songwriter Rudy Currence hit the open mic, and Chris Cocktails, the host, kept us cracking up the whole night. Here are some photos… (Video footage coming soon)

 On stage! "Crushing Hard" in full effect with the D Rhodes band!

 

 Grammy winner, Eshe from the group Arrested Development, SMASHED the stage! An awesome singer, dancer, and performer, her energy is amazing!

 

  Chris Theory, the amazing producer behind "Damn Near" and both versions of "Aim High", and my background singer for the night, the dope vocalist (and make-up artist), Miss Bri Did It. :) 

 

 My sister Lianne (all the way from NYC) was there with her friend Karla, who's known me since I was a baby!!

 

 Look who showed up in support: Rudy Currence! Freakin amazing singer, pianist, and songwriter. So proud of him and blessed to have heard him get on the mic later that night. 

 

 Me, the hilarious host (and my Phrat brother) Chris Cocktails, and the lovely Eshe at the end of an amazing night!


January Updates! [Midwest tour, new album, new video] by Shanelle Gabriel

 Behold all things are made new..


January is all about planning for February and beyond. Glad to get back on task after the insanity of the last few months. Thank you for all the prayers, condolences, and positive energy many of you sent regarding the loss of my mother and brother-in-law. I appreciate all of you and thank you for your love & support. MUAH!

Alright now, shout out to my new assistant, Lyday Patterson, who will be working to help me make an impact both as an artist and as a company, Starting Something Productions, Inc. Big tings a gwan! And February is a BUSY month. I'll be in Texas for the latter half of the month with a stop in Seattle, but next week, I hit the road next week for a mini-tour in the midwest:

2/5- University of Central Missouri
2/6- Avila University
2/7- University of Missouri- St Louis

For a complete list of dates, go to my Calendar. Hope to see you soon!

Aim High: The Album 

I've been in the JahRock'n Productions studio ALL week getting this new album wrapped. AIM HIGH is going to be an AMAZING project. The next few months are going to be intense, but I'm really looking forward to sharing my stories, my poetry, my music, my lyrics with you. This album features some dope friends of mine: Kel Spencer, Livewire, Heesun Lee, and GreyMatter, all dope artists that rep NYC as well as the awesome Willie Hyn who's holds it down in Atlanta and a cameo from YouTube star/ comedian/ poet SpokenReasons. Production by Chris "Theory" Bradley, DJ Static, Marshall "Soulful" Jones, and Team JahRock'n. I can't wait to let you all hear it!

Video: "Daddy's Girls" (Live from Urban Grind in Atlanta)

Here's a poem I created for my father. I'm a bonafied Daddy's Girl, and proud of it. Thought I'd share my first off-book live performance I did at ATL's Urban Grind last month.
