Born, raised and based in Los Angeles, Gaby Hernandez has been writing and recording since 2001. Her third album 'Spirit Reflection' will be released in June 2017 on Mr Bongo.
Hernandez was a founding member of ‘Build An Ark’, and performed live and in the studio with them throughout their 10-year run. She made major contributions to Ammoncontact's Ninja Tune releases 'New Birth' (2005) and 'With Voices' (2006) and The Life Force Trio's Plug Research release 'Living Room' (2006). She was the vocalist on Swiss Producer Dimlite's 'Outernational Duet' released as part of his highly acclaimed Sonar Kollektiv project 'This Is Embracing' (2006) as well as being the only vocalist on Teebs' debut Brainfeeder release 'Ardour' (2010). Hernandez was invited by Mia Doi Todd to sing on the Jonathan Wilson produced song "Canto de Iemanja" which was included on Todd's City Zen release 'Cosmic Ocean Ship' (2011) and was featured on the ‘Red Hot + Rio 2’ compilation the same year.
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).
'Spirit Reflection' is Gaby's third full-length album – a dreamy folk-electronica masterpiece featuring a stellar line-up of west coast talent in Kamasi Washington, Dexter Story, Carlos Niño and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson alongside Gaby.
