Talking with Musician Gabriel Mayers About His Career Path

Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY by a single mother who worked
hard. My dad wasn’t around. I was a latch-key kid. Letting myself
inside the house after school and cooking dinner for myself while my
mom was at work. She worked a desk job at the police department
when I was younger. This is what has helped me build the work ethic that I have today. When I was younger I always knew that I wanted to get to a better place and to get my family into a better situation. I used my life experiences to write music and haven’t looked back since.

What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

The most challenging thing I’ve had to overcome in my life was starting to play in the subway when no one knew who I was and not having much musical experience was challenging. I had to play early mornings year-round, trying to get better and hoping the right person noticed me.

Could You Tell us a Little Bit About Your Career Thus Far?

I got my start in music by playing in the subways of New York City. In 2012 I was featured in several videos in which I was pictured playing underground. In 2014, I was asked to fly to Hollywood by Grammy Award Nominee Linda Perry, to star in a reality series about songwriters. In 2016 I was featured in Oscar Nominee Josh Fox’s documentary, ‘How to let go of the world (and love all the things climate can’t change)’, soon after embarking on a nationwide tour. That same year my original song, ‘Sixty Charisma Scented Blackbirds’ would be placed on the Academy Awards shortlist for Best Original Song. It has over 1 million streams worldwide. I have performed with the likes of Nahko (and medicine for the people), Sarah Lee Guthrie, Peter Yarrow, Kyp Malone (of TV on the radio), Francis and the lights and more.
