Life & Work with Gabriel Suarez

Today we’d like to introduce you to Gabriel Suarez.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I started making music at 11 years old; around 13 years ago. Growing up, I was always exposed to good music, ranging from old school hiphop, reggae, alternative, etc. I come from a very artistic family, so I was never really surprised I decided to make music a full-time thing. My music is all over the place, I cannot say that I’m in a certain genre to be quite honest.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It’s been a tough time for sure. Like every struggling artist, I’ve struggled to make a name for myself ever since I started taking the musician route seriously since high school. Staying up sending out countless emails to blogs and record labels and getting rejected by the majority of them, but always keeping my head up because there’s always opportunities out there for anyone. Just gotta keep pushing hard enough to get to where you want. Although I’ve had countless struggles along the way, I’ve also had my luck in the past 4-5 years. Getting playlisted on Spotify, getting deals with certain companies, etc.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m a musician that can’t really box himself in a certain genre cause my ear is all over the place. Same goes with my music taste, I can go from listening to hiphop to some really obscure jazz to electronic music, It’s really depending on how I feel. If I want to make some jazz, I’ll make some jazz. If I want to make some really ignorant shit, I’ll do that. I’m a mood-based musician that takes inspiration from what I’m listening to in the moment, I guess you can say. I guess I’m really known for being a very erratic musician when it comes to that cause people never know what to expect when I release something unless it’s a single of some sort. What I’m most proud of is how far I’ve gotten as a musician currently. I never thought I would have music passing 1000 streams on a platform and I average at least 40k streams a month.

We’d love to hear about any fond memories you have from when you were growing up?
My favorite childhood memory is when I graduated middle school. My mom took me to my first concert and after that it just made me go, “Wow, I think I know what I want to do. I wanna be upstage in front of countless fans and have them enjoy what I put out in the world.” After that, it was really dead set that I wanted to do that.
