Where it all began
GABRIELA NADER signed with EF/SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT & released a 4 song EP named “I’m A Legend” in January 2017.
Heavily influenced by renaissance music, hip hop, trap, pop music, urban pop culture and life itself GABRIELA NADER describes herself as a “POP URBAN Music Artist” rather than calling herself a singer.
“It’s musical art. That’s why I call myself a music artist rather than a singer. Being a singer is only part of the game… and yes it’s a game — – it’s music, it’s fun, it’s pop urban art, it’s life, it’s free and wild and deep and shallow yet full of high hopes and dreams, aspirations and interpretations. We live a rollercoaster of emotions everyday… and that’s life.” states GABRIELA.
