Biography

For nearly 30 years, Dallas vocalist Gabriel B. Meadows has been pleasuring audiences with his emotive interpretation of song, and he has collaborated with some of the greatest musicians of our time: among them are jazz trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis and chanteuse Ella Fitzgerald’s long-time bassist Keeter Betts. Though originally from Atlanta, it was in 1992 that the versatile crooner relocated to the Dallas Metroplex from the nation’s capital. Before leaving Washington, D.C., he contracted to perform at the legendary Du Pont Hotel, delivering standards with his own style of song interpretation from his inexhaustible repertoire.

As a classic vocalist, Gabe first sang publicly in the ’70s when he was invited by a local singer to perform with her in a San Francisco nightclub. From that moment forward, he has been a mainstay on the competitive performance circuit, rendering all styles of compositions for his diverse following: He reflects Ekstein’s presence, Sinatra’s cool classics, and Jarreau’s passion. These intriguing vocalists, along with Nat King Cole and his favorite, Nancy Wilson, are some of Gabe’s primary influences.

Gabe has delighted fans at many Dallas area nightspots, including Sambucas, Sipangos, The Ocean Grill, and countless other popular venues. Currently, Gabe performs at venues like The Times Ten Wine Cellar, Dallas, Soho Jazz Grill, Lekka Café, the Kitchen Café among others. In these venues, he features some of the same artistry that has made him a local favorite on the fast-paced weekend entertainment scene.

Gabe’s versatility allows him to express his musical proclivities in a number of genres: R&B, popular, jazz, and soft rock are all at the disposal of one of Dallas’ premier showmen, Gabe Meadows.
