Gael Boom

Genre: Soul/R&B
Hometown: Dallas, TX

Gael Boom is an angel-voiced R&B vocalist from Dallas, Texas whose videos have garnered tens of thousands of views on YouTube. His performing strength lies in his smooth, mid-range vocal tone that effortlessly weaves its way through melodies. Singing is not the limit of Gael Boom's talent, however. He acts, choreographs, dances, produces, and plays a myriad of instruments including piano and drums.

People say my music is different. I call it 'life music.' I talk about real life, things I've been taught, things I've been through that's helped make me stronger.

Gael was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa, but lived in Toulouse, France at an early age, picking up French as his first language. His musical career began at age 14, singing in church choir. At 16 Gael began singing lead, and at 17 formed his own performing trio. He's been producing other artists since 2007 but his most recent mix tape, If I Gave U The World, marked his personal entry into the recording world. In 2013, Gael is working on his debut solo album, expected to be released later in the year.
