Gabriel Lazaro is a Boston based musician with roots in jazz, hiphop, rock, and indie pop. Emerging from the Metro Manila gigging scene, Gabriel started his first main band, OPUS weekend, which garnered a consistent radio presence on local stations such as 88.3, as well as performances alongside Manila’s best artists such as Clara Benin, The Bleu Rascals, Juan de la Cruz band, and Franco.
During these years the band spent time promoting their EP “Mixtape of Doom” in different events and local bars. OPUS weekend then released a slew of singles which illustrate a pivot in Gabriel Lazaro’s sound, serving as the transition between the old indie rock style to a new, more conscious form of music. Since he started his studies in Berklee college of music Gabriel has been building his career as a solo musician, composing in a new style of experimental folk, while also being a supporting musician for other artists projects such as Elle Sebastian, Rat Cat Bastard, Soviet Jesus Choir, and most recently the Thistle Brother’s who celebrated the introduction of Gabriel Lazaro into their band by featuring him on their latest single “Are you coming home tonight?” on the acoustic bass. Gabriel Lazaro continues to compose “music for the sake of music” and is constantly collaborating with other musicians, making his presence and those around him known.
