Ollie Gabriel comes from a small town in Louisiana, born into a family of artists. The soul-pop singer grew up listening to soul icons like Bobby Womack and Tyrone Davis, and his style has been reference to legends like James Brown and Otis Redding.
Since the artist’s move to Los Angeles, he has pushed the needle forward continuously, securing music placed in ads and on TV networks such as NBC, MTV and TNT. His most recent single “Running Man” has already earned over 14 million streams on Spotify and is only looking to continue in growth. Having started his music promotion in Europe, “Running Man” charted at #5 in Austria, top 20 in Switzerland, and in the top 30 in Germany.
Gabriel returned to the states in November of 2016 and since then has re-positioned his efforts to spread his message throughout the USA. The single is about following your dreams and overcoming obstacles. The message of the video is synonymous as well. Take a look at the music video below.
