About the Band

Austin bedroom-pop musician San Gabriel is a crafter of dreamy, nostalgic pop songs, written and recorded in an East Austin liquor store.

Named after the river where he spent countless summer nights learning guitar and jamming with childhood bands, San Gabriel features 3-time Austin Music Award recipient James Bookert (Whiskey Shivers/Wild Child) splitting duties as writer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist.

After having gained experience writing with musicians like Trinidad James and Raissa, producers Nate Donmoyer and Odie, and sharing the stage with DJ Khalid, Anna Kendrick, and Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect 3), Bookert began writing and recording under the name San Gabriel behind the counter at a liquor store as a way to entertain himself during his night shifts.

Fusing 80’s-style synth hooks with modern reverb-drenched guitars and synthesizers, San Gabriel creates a kaleidoscopic, nostalgic dream-pop sound.
