Aa part of my series about leaders helping to make the entertainment industry more diverse and representative, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Gabriel Gornell, an award-winning branding, production and distribution executive for the music and entertainment industries. He specializes in strategic initiatives for artists and filmed entertainment properties that reach audiences via multi-tiered, holistic distribution systems. One of his current projects is the ‘Back To Amy’ exhibit, live stream, and benefit commemorating Amy Winehouse on the tenth year since her passing.

Young Summer

For 2021, Gabriel is very excited to be working with artist Young Summer who he co-manages with Rob McDermott.

Young Summer is an American songwriter/singer based in Nashville, TN. She’s gained recognition for her uniquely textured alto voice, raw and deliberate songwriting, and uncompromising sincerity.

Her music blends perfectly-crafted songs with layered electronic soundscapes. And her powerful emotive style has drawn comparisons which range from Kate Bush to Lana Del Rey.

Young Summer has performed with artists including Odesza, Tove Lo, Chromeo, Tegan and Sara, Glass Animals, and Future Islands.

LadyGunn Magazine recently professed that “Her deep and poetic musings take you to far corners of the mind, Young Summer makes music you want to sway to, but also really pay attention to.”

Currently, Young Summer released two singles (‘If the World Falls To Pieces’ and ‘The Emperor’) from her upcoming album, “Emotionally High,” the follow up to “You Would Have Loved It Here” (2016 EP) and “SIREN” (2014 LP), which was heralded by the indie community.
