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.

#Lolla2020

Proud to have been a part of 2020’s virtual Lollapalooza which streamed live on YouTube from July 30-August 2nd, 2020. In a year that should have provided a magical weekend in Chicago, we reinvented ourselves under lock-down and delivered an incredible experience with the help pf Michelle Obama, LL Cool J, Paul McCartney, Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Imagine Dragons, Josh Homme, Khalid, Lorde, OutKast, The Cure, Tyler The Creator, Tom Morello, The Weeknd, Run The Jewels, John Carter and Ana Cristina Cash, Future, Gary Clark Jr., Chance The Rapper, Common, and many many more. The event also featured “reunion” performances from Perry Farrell with both Jane’s Addiction and Porno For Pyros. Gabriel Gornell proudly served as an Executive Producer.

Perry Farrell’s Kind Heaven Orchestra

As part of the executive team/artist management, Gabriel currently oversees brand strategy, messaging, and digital content for the connected creative businesses of visionary artist Perry Farrell— including his interests in The Kind Heaven Orchestra, Lollapalooza, Jane’s Addiction, Porno For Pyros, and a growing portfolio of music, event, streaming experiences, and purpose-driven (charitable) initiatives.

Recent initiatives include the Perry’s career-spanning box set due holiday 2020, serving as an Executive Producer on #Lolla2020 (the Covid-compliant virtual festival), serving as an Executive Producer in the development of the upcoming Lollapalooza documentary, and overseeing both marketing and brand initiatives including social media, direct-to-fan, streaming, promotions, PR communications, label relations, and more.  Excited to have played an integral role in the first Porno For Pyros reunion performance in 28 years!

Perry Farrell

Gabriel Gornell is proud to be on the management team of Alt-Rock legend Perry Farrell. Gabriel began working with Perry in 2019 via a digital marketing assignment from BMG for the launch of Perry’s Kind Heaven album and tour. Gabriel became an official management team member in 2020 joining Ian Jenkinson, Rob McDermott, and Michael James overseeing Perry’s interests in Jane’s Addiction, Porno For Pyros, solo endeavors, and his role within Lollapalooza which is now in seven countries.

In 2021, Gabriel’s role within the organization has grown from brand and digital oversite to an executive producer role on all Television, Film, and Streaming initiatives. This came after the incredible success of Lollapalooza 2020 – which was re-imagined during Covid as a four day live-streamed event for which Gabriel served as a chief architect of the concept as well as an Executive Producer.
