Australian singer songwriter Gabriel Lynch has spent much of his adult life travelling and wowing audiences across Asia, Europe and his own home turf with his breathtaking live performances. With his powerful command of the stage, he can incite a pin-drop silence as quickly and effortlessly as he can instigate a soaring, cathartic singalong.
Commenting on his humble, but extremely loyal following, Australia’s BMA Mag noted that Lynch “…is the best male Aussie vocalist you’ve never heard”. Upon hearing one of his earliest releases, Clem Bastow of Inpress Magazine anticipated that “a million sales await”.
He has shared festival lineups with the likes of Elbow, John Butler Trio, The Whitlams and Architecture in Helsinki and is as familiar playing to small coffee house audiences as he is crowded outdoor amphitheaters.
Lynch now resides in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In between tours and expanding upon his already extensive catalog of studio releases, he composes music professionally for radio, film and television on behalf of Maveriq Studios.
