Gabriele Morgan Announces “LA’s Got Lines”!
“My goal was to communicate the excitement and anticipation I felt about the revitalization of the Los Angeles County area coming this year with the new transit lines that have opened and are about to open, by adapting a well-known public domain song to connect them via the line colors, in a simple and fun way that would make it easy to remember” – Gabriele Morgan, writer of LA’s Got Lines.
Los Angeles singer and songwriter Gabriele Morgan has written and recorded a new work
called “LA’s Got Lines” to celebrate the Measure R-funded transit revolution unfolding in
the Los Angeles County and surrounding areas.
Featuring herself on lead vocal and the inimitable bass vocalist Charlie Davis of LA’s
renowned a capella Doo Wop group the Mighty Echoes doing baritone duties, the track
was produced and recorded entirely by Gabriele in the waning days of 2011, in time to
welcome the extensions of the Expo line coming in early 2012. It also features harmony
vocals by Prohibition Pop- era band Doozy singers Christie Mellor and Doug Freeman, in
keeping with the song’s inspiration in the 19th Century spiritual Dry Bones, which was
popularized in the 30’s and 40’s by many vocal groups.
Gabriele Morgan has been performing, recording and singing in the Los Angeles area
for some years and is well known for her work in two popular local bands, Doll Congress
and Valentine’s Revenge. Currently she has new releases of her solo work, collections of
songs as well as the CD “Savasanas I – IV, Inner Time Music by Gabriele Morgan”, which
are widely available online via www.gabrielemorgan.com.
“As someone who lives in the Santa Monica part of the county, I can’t wait to be able
to hop on the light rail and go places that are currently very difficult to get to in a car
because the traffic is so heavy,” says Gabriele. “I see the upcoming transit explosion as
the equivalent of the removal of arterial blockage in a body and the way the blood can
again circulate freely. In the same manner, money and energy will once again be able
to move around the southland and bring life to parts of the region that have been cut
off. It will revitalize our cities and we will witness a cultural and economic renaissance.
Ride the rainbow on Metro!”
