Gabe Valla, a North Florida native, grew up in a musical family in the Gainesville area. His parents played music and his father operated a recording studio where Gabe was privy to the musicianship of such bluegrass greats as John Hartford, Gamble Rogers, Tony Rice, and Vassar Clements. From the time he was a teenager, Gabe was a “known quantity” in the bluegrass world having won contests such as the Merlefest Flatpick Guitar Championship (1995) and through his showcases and performances at festivals across the south. Gabe is an astute songwriter and flatpick guitarist who’s laidback demeanor underlies the elegant, melodic virtuosity that is a trademark of his playing.
Gabe is a sought after performer, session musician and producer and has contributed songs, production skills, and musicianship to artists such as Larry Rice, Mark Johnson, Scott Anderson, Scott Vestal, Aubrey Haynie, Sam Pacetti, The Gatorbone Band, and many more.
