Gabriola Music On Streaming Services

Well its been quite a while since I wrote a new post. Lately I’ve been discovering our very own Gabriola Musicians on streaming services. Musicians and Songwriters who have loaded their music up to various streaming services. Band Camp, Amazon Music, Tidal, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube etc. I’ve created a playlist on Spotify called Gabriola Songs to make it easy to get started finding Gabriola music.

Note: most streaming services require a monthly subscription fee. Some artists will only be on the free(for the artist) services like Band Camp, Sound Cloud and You Tube.

Gabriola Musicians Who Are Streaming

Here is a partial list of who I found so far: Corbin Keep, Tina Jones, Dave Teichroeb, Sarah Osborne, Brian Green, Mad For Joy, The Kerplunks, Gary Fjellgarrd, Atlantis One, Paul Gellman, Joshua Wood, Bob Bossin, Nerdicus, DJ Washed Up, NEAVV, Sly Jones, Steve Elder and coming soon Niz Wiz. Could be more and I’ll add then in as discovered.

This is a spotufy playlist. You may need a subscription to listen.
Above is a mixcloud link to the podcast of the radio show Road Poets . Dave Teichroeb is the host.

Allways Follow the Artist

Gabriola songs was created to promote and support the music of Gabriola Songwiters and Musicians. Our big plan was to hold something called Summer Fest. Well the pamdenic sure has put that on hold. It is important to know musicians really only make money when they play live. All the other stuff is essentially ways to promote and keep the fans and audience connected to their music and careers. Times have changed from when an artist sold CDs at record stores, online or at concerts. It’s very important to FOLLOW the artist. This is their connection to you. Each time they upload music you’ll be told about it. It also helps them gain credibilty and more inclusion in the streaming service’s official playlists. When a musican is added to an official playlist it’s almost the same as what getting played on the radio was in the “old days”. Help feed the algorithym.

Streaming Services Don’t Pay Musicians… Much

I also need to mention this about streaming. Most musicians get so little from the streaming services the music is essentially free. Below is a chart showing average payouts. From a high of .01 per stream on Amazon to .0001 per play on Youtube(free not Red). An example on Spotify is 1000 streams would make the artist $30. About enough for a burger and beer. Buy your favourite artist a beer when you see them too!

Find Another Way To Support Musicians

Always find another way to pay for your Gabriola music on streaming services. Band Camp allows Artists to sell their music directly to you. (Some Artists will only stream through Band Camp because they offer this.) Throw a big tip at the market when they play live. Pay to watch their online concerts. Buy a ticket to see their concert. Go to their website and buy a CD or other merchandise. Spotify allows artists to post a link for you to send money directly to the artist.


Most of all listen. Listen to the incredible art your fellow Gabriola Islanders have created. Join or find a streaming service and listen. Learn the songs and words. Find your favourite songs. Tell them. Follow the artist to help them and to know when new music is released. We will play live again. Nothing is greater than the thrill of seeing fans mouthing or singing along to the words of a song you wrote.

See you on the lawn this summer, Dave Teichroeb

Concert On The Screen

Gabriola Songs is pleased to announce a partnership with the Gabriola Lions to produce a 2020 online fundraising concert called Concert On The Screen – Music Of The Beatles. As per usual it will be on a Thursday night. August 13 – 7 pm. We are still laughing how well the name works! This is the Lions anual “Concert On The Green” fundraiser to raise money for the Gabriola community.

The actual concert will occur in a physically distanced performance space and be shown on-line using ZOOM. To go to the concert we will be providing an online ticket service where you buy a link to the show. There will also be a donate button to give money directly to the Gabriola Lions. Concert goers will have the chance to clap, and be seen if they choose to. The exciting part is the whole Isand is invited to watch the same show at the same time. It will also be a great oppourtunity to thank the frontline workers and celebrate our fantastic community. And of course, fundraise for the Gabriola Lions who do so much for our Gabriola Island.

Secretly we have been working for months on a replacement show for the annual Lions Concert On The Green Fundraiser. Once the name Concert On The Screen was hatched we have been busy putting all the behind the scene stuff together to make an online fundraising concert a reality. In the tradition of having cover bands perform at Concert On The Green, we have enlisted an all star Beatles Band of Gabriola musicians. The whole story is we were going to be doing a big Beatles Music concert in June at the Community hall. You know the rest of that story.

Here’s what we have so far:

Purchase Tickets here: Link Coming Soon from Ticket Tailor

Show Date and Time: Thursday, August 13that 7pm

Entertainment: Gabriolan Musicians performing Beatle Songs (Frank Sehr, Kelly Field, Ian Cox, Phil Owen, David Botten, Andreas Kahre, Chris Doherty, Jennefer Laidley)

Gabriola Video for the song Gabriola by Dave Teichroeb

Almost forgot to upload this. Me, Dave Teichroeb, the authour of this post, created a Gabriola video. Essentially a slide show of all things Salish Sea with some concert fottage and musician pics. Most of the Gabriola musicians who participated in the Gabriola Songs CD and concert are featured. The song, Gabriola, was the inspiration for the Gabriola Songs double CD. The backing band on this recording are The Kramdens from Guelph , Ontario. They can be seen in some live clips added from a theatre show I did with them. Live footage of a concert from Cultivate Music Festival includes the Gabriola Singers as my choir. That was a blast.

This Gabriola video was my first crack at video editing!

Thanks for waiting. While you may have not known you were waiting, I have been diligently working on website pages dedicated to Gabriola Musicians. As I type this today I have just finished a list of 47 Gabriola Musician Pages. It is the start. More to come when I get the info. Please send me your info. You may ask why I’m doing this. Here is the long answer to that single word.

Why a Gabriola Musician Website?

I created a Gabriola Musician website out of the project Gabriola Songs. Gabriola Songs is 40 song CD of Gabriola Musicians singing from and about Gabriola Island. As the year went by I new I was collecting a treasure trove of info about our local musicians, composers, instrumentalists, song writers and even venues.

As I move forward I will attempt to catalogue and archive as much about Gabriola Music as I can. If you want to help, send me something you think I need to know.

The Gabriola Songs Organizers are proud to announce that we have given a $4,000 donation to People For A Healthy Community( PHC). Dave Teichroeb, Gerry Stefanson and Ivan Bulic went down to the Gabriola Commons last Friday to hand over proceeds from the concert and sale of CD’s. The concert was a roaring success and  CD’s have been selling briskly since. A special thanks to Gerry for getting the CD’s to 15 local stores. He has also been hawking the Gabriola Songs CD at craft shows where he retails his Cymbal Wear Jewelry.

I’ll have picture to add soon of the grip and grab cheque hand over. For now enjoy this one. That’s Dave Teichroeb Explaining why we do this……
