Gabriel Teodros & SoulChef

Gabriel Teodros & SoulChef - Evidence Of Things Not Seen

"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

"There’s significant conceptual depth and ambition in Teodros’ new collection that remains both inviting and even warm." - Okayafrica

"I was introduced to Gabriel via this collab, and after checking the album out he’s become one of my favourite MCs." - Mr. Tang, The Word Is Bond

Limited-edition book of lyrics and digital book available with album exclusively on Bandcamp.

i'm in the air so they say i'm felt anywhere

CopperWire (Meklit Hadero, Burntface & Gabriel Teodros) - Earthbound (Porto Franco Records, 2012)

"Hip-hop moves beyond materialism for a more planetary perspective in Earthbound, the debut record from soulful sci-fi trio CopperWire. The musical space opera’s cosmological bounce is finely tuned for listeners who are as plugged into NASA and SETI as they are into Digable Planets and Sun Ra." - WIRED Magazine

"Best Hip-Hop Space Opera" - Best Of San Francisco, SF Weekly

"A record that's bold, packed, beautiful, dark, political, funky, lyrical, and moving." - Charles Mudede, The Stranger

Album includes liner notes written by Nnedi Okorafor

Gabriel Teodros - Colored People's Time Machine (Fresh Chopped Beats, 2012)

"Musically, the album blends genres effortlessly, and is cleverly produced. It is captivating and smooth-flowing, and never loses its rhythm. Teodros describes his musical journey as ‘a constant process/unraveling/you call it hip hop/I call it Colored People’s Time Machine’. And he has taken a beautifully collaborative approach to telling his story. A well-crafted, thoughtful, insightful ode to all the people, experiences, places, that have made him who he is today. To borrow a phrase from Lauryn Hill, Colored People’s Time Machine is ‘a well written thesis broken down into pieces.’" - Anne Mazimhaka, This Is Africa

Lovework

Gabriel Teodros - Lovework (MassLine, 2007)

"When you talk about Hip Hop in the Emerald City (Seattle), you will lose all credibility if you don’t give props to Gabriel Teodros... His solo album Lovework is considered a masterpiece and one of the tightest albums to ever bless the city who’s Hip Hop scene was once only defined by Sir Mix-A-Lot." - Davey D, Breakdown FM

"Teodros has brains, musicality and a refreshing attitude." - Robert Christgau, Rolling Stone Magazine 

"The second-generation-Ethiopian's first major proper, Lovework, is a stirring exercise in soulful hip-hop from start to finish" - Kevin Polowy, URB Magazine

"Gabriel Teodros lets his heart bleed on his solo album, Lovework. He delivers a number of powerful messages here, and out of all the albums I have reviewed thus far, I consider this the most important because of the level of social consciousness packed in." - Okayplayer

"Young and romantic and imbued with the spirit of possibility, Lovework is the soul of an old man." - Colorlines Magazine

CD available on a sliding scale exclusively at Bandcamp.
