Long-time artistic partner of David Bowie and The Cure’s current lead guitarist, Reeves Gabrels, brings his power trio, with superb songs, stellar musicianship and fearless improvisation!
Reeves Gabrels is currently touring internationally with The Cure, one of Britain’s best-known alternative rock bands, but is known for his long partnership with British singer David Bowie, with whom he worked as guitarist, bandmate, co-writer and co-producer from 1987 to 1999, as an essential part of Bowie’s nineties sound.
Reeves continues to pursue an independent and wide-ranging international music career as an accomplished composer/songwriter, musical collaborator, and solo performer/producer with numerous credits. He worked with Robert Smith of The Cure during the late 1990s, collaborating on The Cure’s “Wrong Number,” and “A Sign From God”, as well as the song “Yesterday’s Gone”.
Gabrels continues to play periodically, with Club D’Elf, the jazz-dub-Moroccan group led by Mike Rivard with a diverse roster of musicians and an improvisational approach. Gabrels has written soundtracks for films including David Sutherland’s “The Farmer’s Wife”, and for PBS productions. He has collaborated with Public Enemy on the song “Go Cat Go” for the Spike Lee film “He Got Game”. He wrote the “club music” portions of the soundtrack for the video game Deus Ex.
