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

Yes we like to Rock!

Dave Teichroeb Band – September 19th 5 -8pm at the Gabriola Commons Timber Frame Building

Tickets are $10 & purchased here: or email to make a reservation

Gabriola’s own Dave Teichroeb (Guitar/vox), Kelly Field(bass) and Rob Remurda(drums) are performing a two set rock show of mostly original tunes. Bring a picnic and a chair and hear some live music out front of the Timber Frame building. They have been woodshedding these songs for months and need you to witness them in person. There is lots of room to physically distance. The show is limited to 40 guests, so reserve early by buying a ticket. Dave says,” We’ve some great new tunes I’m really proud of and the band is sounding amazing. Been waiting years to get a band like this going.” There will be a short acoustic set and then it goes electric! Ron Cote of Road Runner Mobile is doing our sound.

The Dave Teichroeb band plays songs written by Dave over his 30 + years as a performing musician. The music is described as a mix of folk, rock, blues and country. We sometimes throw in a few Neil Young covers or something a bit more eclectic from the past.

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.
