Let's find out...
WHO IS GABRYEL KEVYN?
If you wanna get back to rockin’ and are looking for a new scene, then check out “Let’s Get Rockin’!” by upcoming singer/songwriter and producer Gabryel Kevyn. Called "A Torrent Of Hungry Rapture", Rock n’ Roll is at the absolute core around multi-talented Gabryel Kevyn’s life and music and is now finally available for purchase.
A native of his beloved Philadelphia, Gabryel grew up influenced by a city dedicated to Rock n’ Roll from the early rock days of the timeless Spectrum arena to the blow-out shows at the Linc.
The wide repertoire of musical influence that underlies Gabryel’s songs captures hints of 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s Rock, Pop, and New Wave for your individual tastes. All together gives you a wonderfully delicious variety of Rock n' Roll - infused with the many powerful "Gabryel melodies" to enjoy and take home.
His live performances at the popular Haverford Music Festival as well as many other venues are exciting to watch and always rocks the place. It’s what “Let’s Get Rockin’!” is all about.
Gabryel is both a songwriter and producer, which deliver for your enjoyment unique rock creations, coupled with tastefully placed melodies and driving dynamics.
Each song is a journey unto itself for you to dive into, experience and taste, and as you listen over and over, you find more and more nuances and hidden secrets Gabryel placed there for you.
Just recenty out of the studio, Gabryel (or George as colleagues fondly call him in honor of the late, great Beatles' producer George Martin) has just finished writing, mixing, and polishing his pioneering 7 song album “Let’s Get Rockin’! The Rise & Glory of Mr. Hollywood".
Expect to hear sounds you know and love, then melded with creative guitar and keyboard tones, solos, and song arrangements, giving you constant ear-capturing moments. If there is one phrase to say it all, it’s gotta be Gabryel’s summation for this millennium… The New Evolution Rock!
WHAT’S HIS MUSIC ALL ABOUT?
From the touching, tasteful classical guitar work in “Yellow Butterfly” to the driving guitars and fanfare trumpets in the surge to fantastic idol glory of “The Rise & Glory of Mr. Hollywood”, Gabryel wants you completely absorbed and drawn into the tales he’s unfolding.
“Hearts Enslave” is a mystical blend of rock guitar and cavernous violins and cellos, creating a climatic experience of true lovers torn apart by time and space.
Then jump to “Her”s musical and lyrical tension for an inward-looking struggle to understand a girl’s hidden, mysterious attraction.
Every song is a story for you to live and re-live, as we next fall into the "blues-fused with hard rock lead guitar" work, surrounded by harmonic vocals in “Dalilah”, the tribute to the ultimate seductress whose beauty no one can withstand. (Check out the rockin’ rock organ at the ending climax.)
“Power” speaks for itself, taking you from pounding rock drumming to screaming guitar rhythms, to sudden flowing, contemplating pop moods, and then back again, giving the real sense of feeling a surging hidden human Power.
Finally, “Tiny Little Skirt”s fast paced, upbeat guitar rhythms and fun vocals, give a tongue-in-cheek look at popular dress styles and how they can influence us and everyone.
The music is new. The music is fresh. The music is a new rock to enjoy and refreshingly take home. In a world where things can be very repetitive the same over and over again, be bold and daring and taste the rock difference!
WHY IS GABRYEL MULTI-TALENTED?
Gabryel's message is not just music. In keeping with his drive to grab his and your emotions and human heart, Gabryel wrote and published a Thriller/Mystery novel called “Innocence Murdered.”
Gabryel delves deep into the human psyche to explore how far greed can motivate us and revenge make us do the unthinkable - and the inevitable price to pay.
Reviewed and press released by Amazon (see the "Press" menu for more), Gabryel not only wants you to take a chance with your courage, but also challenges you.
Here’s the challenge: “…among all the possible and cryptic suspects in the various plots, can you discern the real villain and their crazed evil doings, BEFORE reading the very end! It's an adventure you don't want to miss. So, sit back and enjoy this combined James Patterson (fast paced)/Stephen King (thriller) escapade into the deep mind of man. It’s a page turner for sure!
For your continued indulgence and treat, Gabryel’s “My Sensations – I Am That I Am” is a perceptive collection of timeless, personal verse from the simple to the sublime, from the fun to the serious.
With each word, Gabryel gives a piece of his life story and ongoing experiences to share with you and your own experiences. You don't have to be a lover of verse to slowly savor each phrase, each word, and find what they mean for you. It’s a true treasure chest of human feelings and thoughtful, deep moments.
WHO IS MR. HOLLYWOOD?
Gabryel’s alter-ego? A possible twin? Separated at birth? ...the story unfolds ...
So now, if you’re ready, ”Let’s Get Rockin!” and explore all of Gabryel Kevyn together, and keep the future of awesome, new Rock alive. From musician, songwriter, or music lover, be part of a changing music world for the better, and start a movement with everyone you meet.

STEVIE CUNNINGHAM (C-NOTE)
- Drums (Yellow Butterfly)
"...Stevie is first and foremost the greatest friend you'll ever want. Always, always ready and willing to help and create with you. A serious and wonderful songwriter on his own, I and everyone else just love his songs. His band Smartypants has rocked venues all over and his ability to make us drop our facades and truly see our real selves is his absolute unique talent. It's more than songwriting, he talks to us and shows us our inner real selves. His drum work on Yellow Butterfly was perfectly performed and was so right to the feel of the beautiful song. I cannot, over the many great years together, thank you enough Stevie! A true friend and partner in every way!"
- Drums - Backing Vocals (Power, Dalilah)
"...I met Chris what seems like a billion years ago. His band needed a soundperson fill-in at the time and I was recommended. From there on, we spent enormous creative times together and late, late nights in a smoked-filled studio. We've worked on many songs together and he is so creative. Vocally, harmonies, melodies, verses, choruses, arrangements, and especially his drumming, will just take your breath away. He finds those hidden things no one else hears and transforms them into song hooks that are amazing. On this album, you will hear him on Power and Dalilah vocally and drumming, but we have such a huge repertoire together that please, sign up to our mail list today to know when more is coming from Chris and all these great artists, as we craft more and more Rock n' Roll for you. With deepest thanks (and for putting up with me), always friends, writers, and creators. Peace brother. And as he's fond of saying...ttys!"
- Bass (Tiny Little Skirt, Her, Hearts Enslave)
"...Stev. My man. First, a blinding bass player. I mean, his play takes your breath away. From lightning to subtle to rockin', Stev is so multi-talented, there's no song ever he cannot give blow-away performances, exactly and perfectly created. Plus he's such a great friend. His quips make me laugh so much and he'll hit you with the unexpected every time. So many great and fun times both live and in the studio. Your play on Tiny Little Skirt I just love. Perfect! Her and Hearts Enslave are wonderful expressions from Stev that I know no better bass player. Always wish to work and perform together. Talk soon, my man."
- Backing Vocals (Tiny Little Skirt, Her, Hearts Enslave)
"...Chrissy, Chrissy, Chrissy. If you know her, you absolutely love her. You cannot, not love her. She has been such a creative, talented vocalist as well as one of the most loyal persons you'll ever know. And I know for a fact that she is thrilled that Hearts Enslave made it to this album - her favorite song we ever worked together on. If you ever meet her, ask her if she remembers the original lyrics to Tiny Little Skirt. To this day, I have always been amazed you would sing them lol. They are still in the vault for some day release...in a world that both Stevie C-Note and I hope will exist someday soon. Thanks so much for being a great performer (your range is amazing) and a great, real friend. Rock on' girl!"
- Co-Songwriter (Her, Hearts Enslave)
"...Long time friend and co-songwriter. If there ever was true magick in two creative artists coming together, it's Vince and I. Every time we get together, Vince on keyboards and I on guitar, it's just heaven-sent magick. True Lennon and McCartney magick. Her and Hearts Enslave are only the tip of the songs we created and there's more to come in future releases. He is so talented a keyboardist/pianist and vocalist!.He has won many awards especially the Elton John contest a little while ago, honored as the performing artist closest to Elton John. Looking forward to more times together!"
- Artist, Fine Artist (FUN Art) (BlairBarbour.com)
"...Blair is one of the most creative artists I have ever met. Her collages and art forms are absolutely unique and known worldwide. I have so many of her works from knowing her over the years and especially at the Rittenhouse Square Arts Festival. Mr. Hollywood's imagery was created by Blair at the behest of Mr. Hollywood himself. She is a world traveler and graces everywhere she goes. Always thanks and always both art friends and true friends."
