Liana Gabel knows how to flip the switch, to find that thing that can shift the molecules and make something happen wherever she plays. Yes, she conjures something special, as a complex performer who knows how to keep it simple, she has synthesized many things, whether playing solo or with a band she is a singer-songwriter of the highest caliber with a great vocal range that she knows how to use but doesn’t overuse. Her jazz training serves her well as does years of dance. She’s long limbed and knows how to move while making the audience move with her. Her cinematic good looks project afford her an upstate Holly Go Lightly charisma.
