Join Liana for an engaging heart-folk experience. Her Pete Seeger inspired original songs get us singing and clapping along. These songs address the thread of life that connects all human beings and leave you feeling whole.

“There are very few singer-songwriters whose musical gifts I revere more highly than the lovely and amazing Liana Gabel. From a whisper to a bellerin', Liana's uniquely, intimately poetic songwriting is exquisitely animated by her lovechild-of-Björk-and-Billie-Holiday vocals.”

— Jazz Musician and Promoter James Keepnews


Through her music, Liana Gabel takes seemingly familiar stories, themes, and tropes about being human and transforms them into that which is profoundly unfamiliar and novel, yet warm and comforting. Her Pete Seeger inspired original songs encourage group singing. They rattle, harmonise and stregnthen the collective human heart. Her observations about the changing landscape of our relationships, the country, the world, and her own life clearly inform her work as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and percussive tap dancer. With a voice that is continually refreshing, her lyrics encourage her listeners in their search for truth. She has played at the Newport Folk Festival, Club Helsinki in Hudson (opening for Lucas Nelson), The Summer Hoot, the Bon Odori Dance Festival for peace, Petes Candy Store and the Naples Perfoming Arts Center to name just a few. Her travels around the country also include intimate house shows and yard shows from her music VANue (a Van converted to a venue for outdoor shows and community open mics).
