Gabriel Sanchez Jr. is a singer/songwriter located in the Tampa Bay, Florida  area. Rising from the Tampa music scene, he has gathered a broad range of influences over time playing shows with his band HOPE DARLING. Taking  on-board inspiration from Rock as much as Blues, Classical, Reggae, and even Hip-Hop. Having built a name for themselves on the local Tampa  scene, the band began to branch out finding themselves performing  nationally. An honour that has since been motivated Gabriel to push the  music and work ethic farther and farther. His song “Lifeline” created waves thanks to being featured in Spike Lee’s Netflix series, SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT. 

Along with local,  national and international airplay, the song has taken him and his band  to new heights than ever before with opportunities growing and evolving. His band launched a successful radio campaign in the UK and the EU. Here  in the USA, his band became a winning finalist in the Jack Daniels and  iHeartRadio national battle of the bar bands. 2023 has become a  milestone year as he and his band Hope Darling signed with Epictronic Records and TGS Talent Management. 2024 is looking to become a break-out year for Hope Darling when they release a new album in the Spring. This will be an album of hand-picked songs that fuse thoughtful lyricism with incredibly moving, uplifting and energizing  musicianship.
