Sabriel, a singer/songwriter whose neo-soul influenced music aspires to be enjoyed in a musically genre-fluid world.
Her career begins in her hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada, leading to breakout performances at Life is Beautiful music festival, SXSW, and the Emerge Impact + Music festival.
Since birth, her parent’s love for artists such as Prince, Stevie Wonder, D’angelo and Erykah Badu resonated with her, especially as she began to experiment with writing lyrics and melodies. Musical influences from the past mixed with a craving for discovering artists that would send her on emotional journeys helped her find her own voice.
In 2011, at age 16, the decision to solely go forward with music was made. With a little help from her friends, she co-wrote and recorded her first EP. Following that, she found herself in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas in the middle of its rebirth, singing at local coffee shops, bars and the world famous breakfast joint, Eat. The local community embraced her, leading to 2 consecutive spots at Life Is Beautiful Festival with acts including Kanye West, Outkast and The Roots. Her set continuously drew hundreds, swelling as the set went on to thousands. As her career progressed, she found herself opening for artists such as Sheryl Crow and Mayor Hawthorne and traveling to Austin to perform during SXSW. In 2015, she focused on songwriting, working on projects for television and motion pictures, followed by a year of writing, producing and recording her self-titled, phonetically spelled EP, shä bre el, released in August of 2016. She hopes to not only connect with audiences sonically, but also visually with self-made stage design in her upcoming performances.
In 2016, Sabriel’s phonetically spelled EP “shä bre el” was self-produced and released, in which many songs caught the attention of Spotify curators and made their way to “Fresh Find’s” playlists.
Her songwriting then lead her to write and record songs to appear on television shows like Rebel on BET, Star on Fox and others, as well as in the motion pictures 48 Hours to Live and My First Love.
In the spring of 2018, she signed and released an album with the Japanese label “Sweet Soul Records.” Sabriel continues to write new music, with new releases planned for 2018.
