Marie Naffah Shares New Single ‘Gabriel’

London-based singer and songwriter Marie Naffah has just shared her brand new single Gabriel, a stunning piece of music that reminds us of the kindness of strangers.

I am a fan of Marie Naffah's powerhouse, soulful vocals and beguiling harmonies, and how they are packed with so much raw emotion, flowing beautifully over the warm and intimate production. I am particularly fond of the emotive piano chords that create the perfect atmosphere for her lush vocals and storytelling to soar. Have a listen to this beautiful song below!

Marie was inspired to write Gabriel after a chance encounter outside a church in Sussex. The singer explains,

We’re always told not to talk to strangers, but I did, and it was marvellous. Before too long, Gabriel was sitting at my piano, playing everything from jazz to Joni Mitchell. It made me cry. This song is an ode to him, to Gabriel, and to the serendipity of meeting strangers. After a year defined by social distance, I hope the track can be an antidote for pandemic isolation and distrust.
