"i'm operating in a system i do not believe in
authoring some stories we could leave for our children
& honestly wish we all approached it different
but everybody's got a high cost of living..."
Gabriel Teodros & SoulChef
"Light Attracts Light & Everything Else Too"
Evidence Of Things Not Seen
A CambioWasHere Joint.
Peace to Alex Riedlinger, Sidony O'Neal & Enjoni for everything. Peace to Hidmo for inspiration.
Also, check this expansive interview I just did with Amira Ali at Africa Speaks 4 Africa. We went in-depth about the new album, the last album, music in Ethiopia and more. It's my favorite interview done for Evidence Of Things Not Seen so far, which is saying something because the press this album has been getting (with no budget + no publicist) has been great!
"Multi-talented and community-engaged, veteran MC Gabriel Teodros releases his strongest album yet."
- City Arts Magazine
"Sunday-morning easy, SoulChef's classic, hearth-warm production fits the "30 Something, Hella Single" wanderer-MC like fresh socks as he steps out looking for love ("I kinda flirt with existence"), meaning, and home."
- Larry Mizell Jr., The Stranger
"Besides depth packed lyrical content, there is something bottomless and heart grippingly soothing about Teodros’ music. It’s like the perfect synthesis of jazz-tinged soul with Hip-Hop, or it’s like when Hip-Hop meets love and love meets Hip-Hop"
- Amira Ali, Africa Speaks 4 Africa
"I was introduced to Gabriel via this collab, and after checking the album out he’s become one of my favorite MCs."
- Mr. Tang, Word Is Bond
Physical copies of the album with a limited-edition book of lyrics available exclusively on bandcamp.
