San Gabriel, the awesome solo project of songwriter/musician James Bookert (Whiskey Shivers, Wild Child) dreamily sounds more like a full band than the one-man operation it actually is. Bookert does all the writing, recording and production – mostly during any spare moments he can catch during his day job out at J&J Spirits in East Austin. Gotta do whatcha gotta do, man. And Bookert is making the magic happen.
Following the release of the sparkling synth-hook pop piece “Another One” in September, San Gabriel has a new track coming out this weekend. Catch the premiere with a performance by San Gabriel, streaming at 1 p.m. (Central) this Saturday, Jan. 23, on San Gabriel’s YouTube. Your AMM host is hooked.
