Touring songwriter, Gabrielle Louise, will visit the ENMU Portales campus on Monday, April 23 to share her music as well as her knowledge of alternative transportation with a live concert and a sustainability presentation to follow. Both events will be held on the ENMU grounds at the Campus Union Building as part of an entire Earth Day celebration and they are sponsored by the Associated Students Activities Board and Sodexo Food Services. The concert kicks off at noon on the CUB, Dallan Sanders Patio. The presentation begins at 2 p.m in the CUB, Sandia Room. The events are free and open to the public.
Louise and her tour manager, Chris Garre, will share real-life experiences with various bio-fuels as well as the nuts and bolts, including conversions from petroleum to alternative fuel-powered systems.
Gabrielle Louise is a contemporary songwriter, musician and environmentalist. She grew up among the panoramic vistas of Colorado and was born into a family that placed a high value on caring for the Earth. Those values have carried over into her career path as a songwriter and musician. While touring thousands of miles from coast to coast, Louise made a commitment to reduce her carbon footprint through the use of sustainable transportation for the majority of her travels. From her motivations to her extensive research and hands-on experience with alternative fuel resources, she developed a presentation that she shares to inspire thought and action for a healthier planet, especially during Earth Week.
When Gabrielle Louise is not sharing her environmental experiences, she is touring to share her original music. Her music is anchored deeply in folk, but undeniably drawn to rich melodic adventurism. 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 and she delivers with a warm, inviting appeal that showcases her soulful and sultry voice. She is currently working on production for her sixth CD release.
