When it comes to having an enormous amount of sheer natural talent for a career in life, Gabriel “Gab” Escoton is a shining example. At the tender age of 4 years Gabriel could already play the piano, and by the age of 7
As he always wishing to be the best possible version of himself, he took to polishing his vocal ability so that he would be a prime contender in singing contests. The results of competing in more than 20 such contests and winning them all were as much a testimony to Gabriel’s work ethic as they were to his extraordinary natural talent.
Success for Gabriel continued in an unmitigated fashion with items such as being able to teach a choir, becoming a lead vocalist and a skilled keyboardist all at the age of 15 years. Gabriel’s success spurred him on into new directions and experiences in his musical career as he worked for 7 years in Japan as a musical director and lead vocalist once again. He then further worked in all his facets of being by now a musical director, band leader, keyboardist and lead vocalist in Singapore, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and finally in Australia in the late 90’s where he now resides. Indeed, it was his incredible music ability that gave Gabriel the chance to live and work in Australia, coming to Australia under an artist/musician visa of which more than 3000 applied but only 10 were successful, including Gabriel.
Presently, Gabriel works as a voice and piano teacher and continues to make notable live appearances as when he represented himself on behalf of the OFW [Overseas Filipino Workers] for the Man of the Year Award, giving a wide audience television interview on that occasion. While Gabriel is managing his businesses, his love of music stays with him as he continues to perform at special events.

As Gab says, “Life is a lot more meaningful if we can share our creativity and talent to make a difference.”
