Internationally-renowned Gabriel Royal is in a rare and extraordinary group of musical artists who combine cello and voice. The Oklahoma-born musician got his start as a busker on the New York City subway before working his way up to NYC's top performing venues and then to sold-out crowds around the world. He is known for his soaring vocals, hum-along melodies and lush arrangements. Royal wrote most of his first album, released in 2016, while busking on the subway to test how people responded to new material. His style encompasses R&B, pop, jazz and classical music to create a sound that is both rooted in tradition and freshly modern.
