Gabriel Brunot aka Gbrunot is a recording artist born and raised in the small city of Bridgeport, Connecticut. Gabriel grew up exposed to musical greats which enticed him to pursue music as a career. Gabriel has been a singer since the age of 6 and discovered his passion for music at the age of 11. He was always active in his local church and never gave up an opportunity to sing. He then started performing at local talent shows and received a lot of positive feedback. Singing wasn't his only gift. He became well known in the dance scene and would dance battle on local street corners just for the sport of it. Gabriel formed a small support team called "TeamGBrunot". He then travelled and performed in the United States, Europe, and Japan at various competitions and showcases. His brand has expanded to include song, dance, and fashion. Gabriel is currently a brand ambassador for Studio One Eighty Nine. Studio One Eighty Nine (headquartered in Ghana, West Africa and USA) co-founded by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah, is an artisan produced fashion lifestyle brand and social enterprise, made in Africa that produces African and African-inspired content and clothing. Now living in New York City, Gabriel is working on new projects, pursuing his lifelong passion for music, and is open to what the world has in store.
