Gabe Burdulis is a 22 year-old singer-songwriter based out of Nashville, TN. His roots began in Madison, WI where he spent most of his time playing at bars, staying out way too late for school nights. Burdulis began teaching himself guitar after he first picked up his fathers guitar in 7th grade. Writing and performing became a passion very early on, he started playing in multiple bands locally including playing guitar for drum legend, Clyde Stubblefield. Before graduating high school, Burdulis had already become a two-time recipient of the “Les Paul Launchpad Award” and won multiple “Madison Area Music Awards”.
After declining a scholarship to Berklee school of music he moved to Nashville at the age of 18 without knowing a soul.
Since then, he has played iconic venues like the Bluebird Cafe, performed with Grammy Winning band Los Lobos at The Ryman Auditorium, and even caught the attention of Sheryl Crow when she attended his bands show in Nashville, TN followed by a post on her social media saying “They blew me away! Check them out!!”.
Burdulis has toured the country playing major festivals including the world’s largest music festival, Summerfest, and shared stages with Acts like X Ambassadors, Sylvan Esso, Cheap Trick, B.O.B. and Wynona Judd. He spent most of 2017 on the road with his duo, Future Stuff, opening for acclaimed guitarist, Doyle Bramhall II who went on to produce their record full length record (not released yet).
Mixing bluesy roots and a love for pop melodies, Burdulis’ music sits somewhere in a more folk/americana based style. Picking up on early influences like Cat Stevens and James taylor and some more contemporary influences like John Mayer and The Weepies, his lyrics are meaningful with a strong acoustic driven feel. His live shows are energetic yet intimate whether it be solo or with a band.
Burdulis is set to release a new record this summer along with a string of national tour dates!
