Gabriele Esposito is an Italian singer and songwriter. He came to prominence when he starred in the 10th edition of the Italian X Factor. His brief appearance sparked some controversy as an unprecedented number of fans vocally protested Gabriele’s elimination from the show. While appreciating his fans’ support, Gabriele was not particularly sorry to let that particular opportunity go, as it has not deterred him from his project to pursue music as an exciting adventure.
Gabriele leads the life of a normal teenager, his time is occupied by school and friends and he is a natural introvert, right until he picks up his guitar and begins to sing. That’s when he transforms. His voice is clear and powerful and he is an intense and engaging performer, so that it is almost impossible to connect the assured and confident young man on stage to the shy teenager backstage.
After appearing in the X Factor, he went on an acoustic tour of Italy and was met with warm and enthusiastic audiences all over the country.
Gabriele focuses entirely on music, unmediated and unconstrained by TV formats: his attitude is almost punk in that sense and he can convey the same energy on stage as in an impromptu performance on the streets of Rome.
