CDs and Projects

Here's an overview of the music productions I'm featured on:

Trasnú & The Adventures Of Wing Commander Pancake (2017)

Instruments: Wooden Flute, Whistle, Button Accordion

TRASNÚ's long-awaited second CD is here, and we made it a conceptual album complete with a short graphic novel in the booklet. Sounding differently than the first record, it still also sounds familiar...

The Land's End Sessions (2015)

Instruments: Wooden flutes in D, Eb and Bb, Whistles, Button Accordion

In late 2012, two good friends started recording the music they love at the Land's End Studio in Hanover, for the sheer fun of it. There was no plan, no deadline, they just went into the studio for recording sessions whenever time permitted. When things started shaping up, they decided to ask another good friend for her support - and she said yes! So, after many long days and nights, here they are: The Land's End Sessions.

"As a duo and trio, such beautifully rendered and pure music, naturally composes this album into a very sweet and well prepared musical banquet."
-- Dave Sheridan

“This is a fantastic album, with great life and energy, which even some of the best Irish musicians can't reproduce to the same quality as these guys! A real gem, and very much worth the two and a half year wait!”
-- Dermot Mulholland, Réalta

"The overriding standout here is not their technical mastery though, it’s the sheer expression of enjoyment and love for the music, the purity in each phrase that sparks a connection with the listener. The combination of flute, fiddle and strings, when played directly on the melody, just lifts the roof with unadorned delight, sample the full force in the Quinn’s set of reels that dance and meander in a delightfully up tempo way. Inspired by Peter Horan, influenced by Sligo greats, Gabriel plays the music of Connacht like a native."
-- Irish Music Magazine

Cosán: New Roads (2013)

Instruments: wooden flutes in D and Eb, tin whistle, button accordion in B/C

Finally it's done - COSÁNs debut CD! This album is only available from me directly.

Nua: Head Full of Dreams (2013)

Instruments: wooden flutes in D and Bb, tin whistle

The new album of my band NUA, now with Catriona Price from Orkney on fiddle and vocals.

Press commentary: "Fine playing, good strong songs and superb arrangements: Nua is a new group to be reckoned with, and I hope their music will travel far and wide." Irish Music Magazine 04/2014


Trasnú: One For The Road (2012)

Instruments: wooden flutes in D and Bb, button accordion in B/C

Press commentary (sorry, German only): "Ein deutsches Trio spielt irische Musik. Und das richtig authentisch, weil sehr ehrlich. Hier wird nichts versteckt. Die drei Mitglieder machen einfach das, was sie können. Und das ist schon ziemlich viel. Flute, Banjo, Mandoline, Tenorgitarre, Bodhrán, Knopfakkordeon, Piano, Gesang und Gitarre sind zu hören. Shooting-Star Steffen Gabriel feuert auf der Flute die Tunes raus, wunderbar unterstützt durch die Gitarrenbegleitung von Cornelius "Zorny" Bode und Guido Plüschke bereichert das Ganze noch mit Bodhrán. Die Arrangements sind grundsätzlich eher traditionell, aber mit viel Witz. besonders die "Unplanned Polkacy" und die "Inver Jigs" sind bei mir sehr positiv angekommen. Neben den ganzen Tunes gibt es auch noch drei von Guido Plüschke gesungene Songs. Sie sind zwar relativ bekannt, aber mit wunderbaren Arrangements ansprechend gemacht. Insgesamt sehr lohnend..." Irland Journal, 2/2012


Nua: Both Sides (2011)

Instruments: wooden flute in D, tin whistle

Press commentary: "For a debut album there is a freshness and maturity that captures the imagination. Both Sides reveals all sides of the talent exhibited and Nua certainly deliver." Irish Music Magazine

"«Both sides» ist eines der besten Folk Alben, das ich in letzter Zeit kennengelernt habe. Außergewöhnliche und innovative Arrangements, ausgezeichnete Musiker und eine charismatische Sängerin sind der Grundstein für den Erfolg. Das musikalische Jahr beginnt gut mit dem hervorragendem Erstling von Nua." Folkworld

"Wer wissen will, was die deutsche Szene zu bieten hat, sollte diese Platte wirklich anhören." Irland Journal

"with juicy arrangements and the fine interplay - that's a start." Folkworld UK
