LAS CRUCES, NM -- The Black Box Theater presents an evening of original music on Wed, June 24th at 7:00 pm. Songs will be shared by two wonderful acts and songwriters, Gabrielle Louise and Justin Thompson. Admission is $10.

Gabrielle Louise is a nationally touring troubadour noted for her poignant lyrics and lush voice. The daughter of two vagabond musicians, Gabrielle inherited the genetic predisposition to wanderlust and song. Gabrielle Louise's music is anchored deeply in folk, but undeniably drawn to rich harmonies and melodic adventurism. Her sound has the earthy feel of early Joni Mitchell while also veering into the spirited delivery of fellow genre-hopping artist Martin Sexton. Unafraid to take a random musical escapade in the name of inspiration, Gabrielle is at one moment folkie and ethereal, the next moment a smoky jazz chanteuse. She recently released her fifth studio record accompanied by a book of short stories and poems entitled, "The Bird in my Chest."

Justin Thompson is a songwriter and performer from Albuquerque, New Mexico with an affinity for
traditional folk music and the acoustic guitar. His persona and lyrics are as poetic as they are rough around the edges, and both lend themselves to honest and energetic performances. With an instinctive knack for melody and prose, Justin's songs are as singable as they are poignant. Justin recently finished a successful kickstarter campaign to fund the completion of his debut record, "Hymns for a Manchild," reaching his goal of over $5,000 over the course of a one month campaign. For this special concert, Justin celebrates the release of his album.


Both sets will be accompanied by Albuquerque's virtuoso mulit-instrumentalist, Gregg Daigle on mandolin, guitar, and banjo. In 2013 Gregg was voted Best Musician in Albuquerque by the Local IQ reader’s poll and in 2014 was nominated for a New Mexico Music Award.

The Black Box Theater is the home of No Strings Theater Company, and is located at 430 N Downtown Mall, Las Cruces, NM.
