Singer songwriter Gabrielle will be headlining a show at a historic North East landmark.

She is topping the bill at Live at the Cathedral in Durham on Saturday July 20.

From the early ‘90s to the turn of the millennium, Gabrielle was one of the UK’s most successful artists.

With two unforgettable number 1 smash hits, Dreams and Rise, a back catalogue full of Top 10s, two albums which reached four times Platinum status, two BRIT Awards, two MOBOs and an Ivor Novello, everything she touched seemed to turn to gold.

But after some time away, she has now reconnected with original fans and been embraced by a new generation as well.

It was kickstarted by her show-stealing performances in The Masked Singer, leading to her 2021 album Do It Again album entering the charts at number four, her highest chart position in twenty years.

She was also heralded as a pivotal influence by the iconic artists of this era, first with a personal invite from Adele to perform at her huge Hyde Park shows, and then when Stormzy asked her to appear in the video for Mel Made Me Do It.

The track’s dramatic monologue directly referenced her cultural impact: “Gabrielle once told us dreams can come true, and that sentence emancipated the minds of our pioneers.”

The songstress released her eighth studio album A Place In Your Heart in May which continues her creative partnership with producer and co-writer Ian Barter who has also worked with Paloma Faith and Amy Winehouse.

Gabrielle said: “I really loved writing and recording the songs for this new album with Ian Barter.

“I hope you enjoy the record as much as I did making it and thank you for letting me have A Place In Your Heart for the last 30 years.”
