Gabriel Royal & Supaman @ The Alberta Bair TheaterMusic Unites
Oklahoma-born, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter cellist Gabriel Royal plays his "grown up lullabies" in the subway stations of New York City. That's where he found his lawyer, his manager, his cello and where he continues to find a genuine connection with his inspiration: the commuters of New York. Influenced by Stevie Wonder's groove and Burt Bacharach's jazzy yet poppy sensitivities, along with other contemporary artists such as John Legend, Gabriel's trademark sound is all his own. Gabriel released his self-titled album in 2016, along with his single and music video for "Say It's Right," directed by Blake Farber, who has worked with BeyoncÃ© and other A-list artists.
As a member of the "Apsaalooke Nation," Supaman makes his home in Montana. "Supaman" hardly describes the person who is Christian Takes Gun Parrish, a humble Native American dancer and hip hop artist who has dedicated his life to empowering youth and educating listeners with a message of hope through culture and music. His three self-produced projects have all received national recognition and awards including the 2011 North American Indigenous Image Award for outstanding hip hop album.
Christian's presentation combines Native American culture, humor, and urban hip hop culture which dazzles audiences, captivates listeners and breaks down stereotypes. He is a champion fancy dancer traveling extensively on the powwow circuit throughout the U.S and Canada and lives a drug and alcohol free life. He also is a champion clown dancer and a Native American Flute player, not to mention a loving husband and father of three.
These two artists are going to collaborate and share their music with each other and with you.
