About Me

Gabriel Lucas Riccio is a vocalist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, transcriber, and engraver from Salisbury, MD, currently residing in Chicago, IL. His debut album, 'Interior City' by The Gabriel Construct, is a dark and atmospheric concept album featuring Travis Orbin (Darkest Hour, ex-Periphery, Of Legends) on drums, Thomas Murphy (ex-Periphery) on bass, David Stivelman (ex-Debbie Does Dallas) on guitar, Soren Larson on saxophone, and frequent collaborator Sophia Uddin on violin. The album unites players from rock, metal, classical, and jazz backgrounds to create a sound which incorporates influences from a wide variety of genres, including progressive rock, 20th century classical music, extreme metal, drum-n-bass, jazz, '90s grunge and space rock, '80s pop and more. The album's densely layered vocal harmonies, distorted pianos, dissonant chords, and complex rhythms envelop the listener in a hallucinatory wall of sound. Gabriel also writes chamber music, ambient music, and pop songs.

Gabriel has created sheet music books of his transcriptions for King Crimson, Stick Men, Trey Gunn, Tony Levin, and Markus Reuter. He also freelances for Hal Leonard and working with LA film composer/orchestrator/copyist Jeremy Borum with artists including Stewart Copeland, Neko Case, and Beach House. He has a home studio, where has recorded Afroman and works extensively on Travis Orbin's solo music in addition to his own projects.
