Wrabel calls is his favorite feeling in the world: that moment just before a song comes into being. "When the Rubik's Cube of the song hasn't quite clicked, and it's about to," he says. "You can feel it – everything turning to lock this thing in."
It’s a feeling he’s chased for years, since he began writing songs as a teenager. “In high school I wrote the worst songs,” he says. “But it still boggled my mind that you could just sit down and hours, or days later, something is created that didn’t exist.”
Wrabel specializes in music that telescopes small moments into songs with big impact. On tracks like “11 Blocks” and “Gimme Your Love,” the drums may get huge, but the feelings are deeply personal. This is pop music rooted in the singer-songwriter tradition, and it all starts with Wrabel sitting at a piano, fighting for self-expression and survival.
