"Argentine singer and songwriter Gabriela has a divine voice: soulful, earthy - no, downright sexy would best describe it. ... The songs are a blend of surface simplicity masking a deeper, more complex whole that creeps up in strange and beautiful ways; Gabriela's voice is urgent and slightly smokey, drifting on top of music that is never insistent and impossible to ignore."

- CMJ New Music Report
"BEHIND THE SUN. Poetry in any language is still poetry. This is an album to listen to late at night, when the moodiness becomes too much, when the shimmering of the water causes restlessness, and when the shadows crawl much too close for comfort. With Bill Frisell guesting on guitar and Bill Douglass on bass, Gabriela's delicate songs alight upon the senses like a long lost but beloved songbird. Like watching your lover swim out to sea and wondering as to whether they'll return or not."
