“Throughout his 15-year career, spanning several musical and publishing projects under a handful of different names and guises, Teodros settled among the artists who embody Seattle’s conscience and, in the process, its memory, and his artistic archive is more important than ever as the city changes faster than the rest of us can keep up with.” - City Arts Magazine

Gabriel Teodros is a musician and writer from South Seattle who first made a mark with the group Abyssinian Creole, and reached an international audience with his critically-acclaimed solo debut Lovework. He has been setting stages on fire ever since, all across the US, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Ethiopia and South Africa; often in combination with workshops on creative writing, music, history, science fiction and media literacy.

His latest solo offering History Rhymes If It Doesn't Repeat (A Southend Healing Ritual) is a collective exercise in moving through trauma that was made completely in the months of August-September 2018, and produced by long-time collaborator (and 3 time Juno Award winner) Moka Only. The full-length therapy session includes features from nearly every phase of Teodros’ creative life, including Khingz (of Abyssinian Creole), Meklit (of CopperWire), Shakiah, Otieno Terry, Nikkita Oliver, Essam, Mikaela Romero, Rell Be Free, Julie-C and El Dia.

History Rhymes... is Teodros' first album since Evidence Of Things Not Seen released in 2014, a James Baldwin-inspired collaboration with Aotearoa-based producer SoulChef that was described by critics as Teodros’ strongest album yet, after a decade of notable releases that also include Colored People's Time MachineChildren Of The Dragonand CopperWire's Earthbound.

In 2015, Teodros made his speculative fiction debut with a story published in Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements, and in 2016 he graduated from the Clarion West Writers Workshop for Speculative Fiction. His writing has also been published by The Feminist Wire and Okayafrica.

Teodros is also currently active as a DJ on KEXP 90.3 FM in Seattle.
