Artist Interview: Randy Gabel
Tell us about yourself and your music
Instrumental Rock along the lines of Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani. I play all instruments with the main instrument being electric guitar. Some some songs are slow emotional quieter songs and some are fast high energy rock. I can go from one end of the scale to the other. I am a self taught musician from Nanaimo B.C. Canada. I have about 170 original songs to my credit but I also play with platinum recording artist Darby Mills from “The Headpins” The band is Called The Darby Mills Project. I also play in a country rock band Called “Boondock” on weekends when Darby Mills Project isn’t playing. I have been playing professionally for 43 years.

As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
No one else is doing what I do, at least not to this extent. I am a Rock instrumentalist with complete songs that have melodies that repeat themselves to make them catchy just as a song with a vocalist would do

I usually do not listen to other artists but if i do it’s Beck and artists that do what i am doing
