SPIRIT REFLECTION is the third full-length album from Los Angeles singer-songwriter Gaby Hernandez -- a dreamy folk-electronica masterpiece featuring a stellar line-up of west coast talent in Kamasi Washington, Dexter Story, Carlos Nino and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson alongside Gaby.
Blissful layers of instrumentation, vocal harmonies and folkloric percussion intertwine and combine with a distinct west coast feel, to create a unique and beautiful record with many levels.
Even before 'Spirit Reflection' had been finished the demo mixes were picked up and supported by Gilles Peterson, Lefto, Toshio Matsuura and J-Rocc.
Born, raised and based in Los Angeles, Gaby Hernandez has been writing and recording since 2001. Hernandez was a founding member of 'Build An Ark', and performed live and in the studio with them for throughout their 10-year run. She made major contributions to releases by Ammoncontact, The Life Force Trio, Swiss producer Dimlite, Teebs & more.
Among her main musical comrades is the prolific multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Dexter Story. Hernandez joined him on "Water Bearer" for his Kindred Spirits release, Seasons (2013).
David and Graham from Mr Bongo met Gaby and Carlos Nino at the end of their hugely successful Arthur Verocai album launch & rare record sale at RAPPCATS, LA in October 2016. "Gaby and Carlos passed us a copy and we put it on at the end of the event on Saturday. It immediately grabbed us and we couldn't stop listening to it. When we got back to the UK we got in contact straight away and signed the album. We're very proud to be releasing it."
The album will be released worldwide on 9th June 2017 by Mr Bongo. Accompanied by remixes from fLako, and others TBC.
