Gabriel Kahane is a composer/musician/singer/songwriter who divides his time between the club and the concert hall. He has been commissioned by, among others, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Carnegie Hall, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Kronos Quartet, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. His musical, February House was produced by The Public in New York City.
His latest album, The Ambassador, is a meditation on the underbelly of Los Angeles seen through the lens of ten street addresses. We spoke with Gabriel Kahane about the album recently.
