Welcome to GabrielaFrancesca.com, my own personal webiste. I am an 19 year old singer/songwriter and performer hailing from the great city of Chicago. To share my music on stage is my passion – and the stage where I truly feel at home. I have been writing since I can remember, and started setting my words to music around age 13. I quickly incorporated my skills on piano and guitar in my songwriting and in the summer of 2012, I released my first EP, "Insomnia (Knows My Secrets)" after a spring filled with sleepless nights and songwriting til the sun came up. That album is available on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, Spotify among several other sites.
I began performing my originals publicly at age 16. I won a songwriting contest at the Berklee College of Music 5 Week Summer Program, and was chosen out of over 300 students to perform my first public original, "Armageddon," at the Berklee Performance Center in front of hundreds of audience members. After that night, I was eager to perform all around Chicago, including the Penny Road Pub, the Joynt, the Heartland Cafe, and my biggest show, the Hard Rock Cafe. During the school year, I attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, arguably the world's most prestigious contemporary music school. There, I met my band. And thus, the Gabriela Francesca group was formed.
