Los Angeles based artist, Ollie Gabriel recently release his new single, “Running Man.”

It’s a modern approach to the classic elements of pop and soul music. The new song features upbeat vocals and infectious instrumentation that is both fun and of substance.

In February of last year, he released his single “Running Man” to massive success in Europe. And now Ollie is ready to do so in the states.

Hailing from a small town in Louisiana. Ollie Gabriel grew up in a family of artists. As a child he listened to soul stars like Bobby Womack and Tyrone Davis. He would hear his parents playing records in the living room, which entranced him and made him want to try everything. As a child, he learned to play drums, keys, guitar, trombone and singing while in his school band and at church.

Last year he was selected out of thousands by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for its Grammy Next Program, which supports aspiring artists.
