Djana Gabrielle is a French-Cameroonian singer songwriter. After graduating from law school, she travelled extensively for a few years, working for local charities. Back from her travels, she spent a few introspective months in her hometown of Clermont-Ferrand, in the French region of Auvergne, at her parent’s home, where she laid the foundations of what would become her first release. She then decided to move to Paris to focus on music and started playing small gigs around the city. Paris was a stepping stone : 4 years of learning and growing as a singer songwriter. With time and the desire to explore a different path, Djana Gabrielle moved to Glasgow, a city she chose for its vibrant music scene and where she recorded her debut EP released in December 2015 and is planning to release another album soon
