Honesty is where the best songs come from, and a decade ago - within the first lines of the first song from his very first album, no less - Noah Gabriel was already making that abundantly clear. "I don't know what to say, but I won't turn away," from the appropriately-titled "Pride," ushered Gabriel into the Chicago roots-rock scene, crafting his own blend of amiable roots-rock that pulls equally from fiery blues of Stevie Ray Vaughn or BB King and wry folk witticisms a la Lucinda Williams or Ryan Adams. From 2005's debut solo effort In Aurora to 2015's Easy (as part of the power-trio Noah's Arcade), 2017's thematic concept album, Dead Reckoning, about illness, death, and grief, and his newest, 2018's So It Goes...Gabriel's songs are powerful dissections of characters in desperate times or taking even more desperate measures.
