Louisa Gabrielle Bobb (born 16 April 1970; Hackney, London) is a multi-platinum selling, BRIT Award winning English singer, who records under the name Gabrielle. Gabrielle began her career temping during the day and singing for free in London clubs at night. A demo she had recorded around Tracy Chapman's Fast Car found its way into the hands of an A&R man at Go!Beat records and that sample subsequently became Dreams, minus the Chapman sample. Her unconventional image including short tight curls and an eye patch in one of her eyes because of a childhood injury that left her with a lazy eye, soon became iconic and she is best known for her singles "Dreams", "Rise" and "Out of Reach".
