With a mesmerizing mix of Americana, soul, blues, and folk—what she has called “Spanglish folk-soul”— Guatemalan-born singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno navigates troubled waters with “hauntingly beautiful” (NPR) bilingual anthems about love, loss, and the immigrant experience. Starting with her 2009 debut album, Still the Unknown, Moreno has garnered comparisons to Édith Piaf, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, and Aretha Franklin. Following a Latin Grammy for Best New Artist in 2013 and the crossover success of her Grammy-nominated 2016 album Ilusión, Moreno teamed up with arranger-producer Van Dyke Parks on a passionate and timely cover of David Rudder’s single “The Immigrants,” released in July 2018 in response to events taking place at the U.S.–Mexico border. An audience favorite at Lincoln Center Out of Doors for three years running, the multilingual, multitalented Moreno celebrates her American Songbook debut with songs from her extensive catalog as well as sneak peeks from her soon-to-be released album.

“Her soulful vocals and ability to switch languages and genres have made her a rising star.”
“Gaby Moreno is on the kind of creative streak that usually results in recordings that not only stand the test of time, but also set new creative standards.”
