NEXT MONTH: Reeves Gabrels @ Small's 30 July

Reeves Gabrels is one of my favorite kinds of musicians: The man with the storied career, whom most people have never heard of. I'm a big fan of a lot of his work that he never gets enough credit for.

Thursday, July 30th

Reeves Gabrels (b.1956) is an American guitarist who in 2012 joined The Cure, one of Britain's best-known alternative rock bands. The Cure, led by Robert Smith on vocals and guitar, has since headlined major music festivals and performed concerts worldwide -- in Europe, England, Ireland, South America, Mexico, Korea, Japan, Canada and the United States -- with Gabrels on guitar, Roger O'Donnell on keyboard, Simon Gallup on bass, and Jason Cooper on drums.

Gabrels is also known for his long partnership with British singer David Bowie, with whom he worked regularly as guitarist, bandmate, co-writer and co-producer from 1987 to 1999. And since the early 1980s, Gabrels has independently pursued an active and wide-ranging international music career from bases in Boston, Los Angeles, New York, and London. Since 2006 he has been based in Nashville, Tennessee.
