About Gabe Furtado
Gabe Furtado initially was studying communication with a focus on journalism. However, while in school, his Dad suddenly passed, and he realized life was too short not to live your best life. With his new mindset, Gabe decided to drop out of college to focus on his passion for music. He began in 2014 by releasing cover songs by Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Mika. By 2017, he released his first professional EP titled "Just Feelings." The album had three cover songs, including his version of Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance," his most streamed on Spotify, receiving 200k streams. Gabe started making homemade videos on his YouTube channel for two songs to accompany his EP. With the success of the videos, he decided to make his original LP. Gabe launched his original music with "Last Goodbye," a song about his Dad's passing. Accompanied by stunning visuals, the "Last Goodbye" video sparked the attention of the Los Angeles Brazilian Film Festival and was nominated for all the music video categories in the Los Angeles International Music Video Festival.
