Gabriel AERIA, born in Dallas Texas, is of Lithuanian, Latino, American Indian and Asian descent. He is one of 4 sibs and is the son of parents who are both veterinarians. He has grown up surrounded by almost every kind of “critter” from snakes, pigs, ferrets, and chickens to dogs and cats. Gabriel says that he loves them all, yet admits that the cats are his favorites and he wants to someday become a veterinarian specializing exclusively in cat medicine and surgery. His personal pet family includes 3 cats, a Boston terrier, a Great Dane, 2 chickens and a dove.
“Mr. Butters”, Gabriel’s Persian cat, is his biggest music fan, and can be seen most days hanging with him whether he is singing, drumming, playing the bass guitar or sliding the bow on his cello strings. Additionally, Gabriel loves to blow off steam playing video games and doing hip hop. Gabriel is a part of a hip-hop dance company associated with Contemporary Ballet Dallas.
After a series of auditions in 2016, Gabriel was selected to be a part of the TWEENNATION program hosted by Linda Septien and the Septien Entertainment Group, led by Zakk Manzella. This program focuses on professional musical and voice artist development and offers intensive training in stage presence. Gabriel says that one of the best parts of being a member of TWEENNATION is that he can combine his love of dance with voice performance. He also enjoys the camaraderie of working with other young people who share his interests.
In addition to his musical interests, Gabriel is a busy actor and model represented by The Campbell Agency in Dallas, Texas and LB Talent in Los Angeles, California. He has been featured in ad campaigns for clients from Belk to JCPenney, and if you watch closely, you may see him in commercials for Cicis pizza or as the Daisy cottage cheese kid!
