An immensely talented actress, Epstein’s love of performing and art simply cannot be contained. Having studied Voice at McGill University and completing her Bachelor of Music, Gabi has performed at renowned venues including The Pantages Hotel, Trane Studio, The Toronto Centre for the Arts, and The Algonquin Hotel in New York City. But Gabi decided she needed to take her cabaret career one step further. Teaming up with Alcorn allowed her to finally capture her cabaret performance on record. Being an actor first and foremost, her live shows contain an energy that is often difficult to encapsulate. But this isn’t the case on Show Off. Tracks like ‘Corner Of The Sky’ contain an ample warmth while her moving, piano-laden cover of Tom Petty’s ‘I Won’t Back Down’ is both joyous and tasteful. Epstein gives credit where it’s due, and acknowledges Alcorn’s subtle touches on the record: “He captured me as a cabaret artist. He got the right emotion out of me for all of the songs and allowed me to express myself tastefully.”
It’s a remarkable thing for an artist like Epstein to have the chance to spread her wings. It’s even more remarkable when you consider the infinite possibilities of the future of Gabi Epstein’s career as an artist and a performer.
