Gabrielle Solange is an internationally performing artist born in Columbus, Ohio. Her diverse musical style as a singer, songwriter, and producer is what she refers to as "genre-fluid," ranging from powerful pop to free flowing jazz, drawing inspiration from her multi-cultural background and love for all different types of music.
Formerly signed to Sony Records in the billboard charting band Fatty Koo, Gabrielle emerged as a solo artist after a long hiatus at the end of 2017 launching her indie career. She made her debut as an actress in CATCO's 2018 production of Eubie at CAPA's Lincoln Theater for the 100th Anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance celebrating black Americans’ contributions to US history. An activist in her community, she uses art to break down walls and vulnerably connect with hearts on tough issues in order to educate and empower her community. This year she performed at the Columbus Museum of Art for the YWCA’s Stand Against Racism Campaign and joined them again to perform with other leaders for their Activists and Agitators event.
Having grown up in the inner city youth arts programs of Columbus, Ohio she has never left her first love. She is passionate about pouring back into the youth of her home town and abroad. She received the key to the city for her band's contribution to youth arts from Mayor Coleman and has been doing her best to live up to that. She now works locally and serves overseas with a variety of organizations, schools and ministries under RunSong Studios, her multi-media production company and music mentorship program. She is honored and excited to speak at TEDxColumbusWomen this Dec 8 at Columbus School for Girls. Her newest ventures are a blog and shirt line centered around the message of self-worth and real life issues called Confidentity and an upcoming mission to Peru.
