Biography

How It’s Moving:

Some artists come and go on the Myspace charts—not Gabriel Antonio. The 25-year-old Florida native has been a mainstay on several of the unsigned Myspace charts for weeks now. And it appears he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

He kind of sounds like, you know: T-Pain—if the Auto-Tuned star could also pepper his songs with hip-hop verses.

His Story:

If they say money is the root of all evil, don’t tell that to Gabriel Antonio Gonzalez. $4,000—a “crapload of money” to the then-17-year—allowed this smooth-singing Florida boy to get his vocal dreams off the ground. In reality, all Antonio, 25, had wanted to do at the time was rock parties for sweaty teenagers. “Being an artist was never the goal,” the hip-hop-meets-R&B flavored rapper/crooner confesses. “I wanted to be a DJ.” After renting out a local Brandon, FL club and reeling in 2000 teens for his DJ set, Antonio found himself walking away with four grand in hand. Suddenly, the young DJ had the financial means to kick his now-blossoming career as a full-fledged artist into high gear.

Nowadays, Antonio is far from his time logged flipping the faders at Tampa-area teen clubs. With a string of successful club jams, namely “Ride For Me”—an Auto-Tuned jam recorded in his garage that recalls the sound of fellow Floridian, T-Pain, and carries the same vocal buoyancy of Young Money’s “Bedrock”— Antonio has charged his way to the top of the Myspace charts.
