Josh Homme at #Lolla2020

As an Executive Producer on the 4-day virtual Lollapalooza festival, I didn’t get to direct too many segments. But this one I had the pleasure of taking care of. Joshua Homme’s acoustic take on Spinning in Daffodils. Hope you like it. Fun-fact: Josh did it in a single take.

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.

Easy

LA Rockers EASY are hard pretty damn hard to ignore.  We got turned on to these guys from Ian who generally has a good sense about these things!  Stay tuned.  More to come on this front…

From their site…

​At the end of 2016 the world seemed to be headed for a total meltdown. The Los Angeles hills were on fire, there we’re mass shootings in nightclubs, Zika virus, water crisis and worst of all somehow a television clown had been elected president. In the midst of these crisis’ a couple of jam sessions took place between Josh Landau from The Shrine and professional skateboarder Don “Nuge” Nguyen. They instinctively delved into heavy, psychedelic riffs that would last 30 minutes. On a weekend bender in New York City, Josh played an acoustic demo of a short, fast, 2 minute power pop sort of song titled “She Says Goodnight When She Wants To”. Deciding that this style would be something unexpected and totally fresh for both of them, when they returned home to Los Angeles they enlisted their regular wrecking crew of Jordan Jones on second guitar, Ben Brown on synth and Wilder Zoby on drums. Their debut show was a private festival in early 2017 hosted by photographer Atiba Jefferson titled “Last Night,” where they played alongside Future Islands, Animal Collective, Explosions in The Sky.
