Robi Rütenberg (they/them) is a songwriter, musician, and audio engineer living in Jacksonville, Fl. They approach their practice from a queer feminist perspective, one that has largely been shaped by growing up trans in the cultural climate of the South. Their solo venture, Gabe Darling, is an intimate reveal of some of the artist's inner currents, from which they weave haunting and enrapturing soundscapes and movements. They are also involved in two other music projects: an indie island goth duet (The Little Books) and an unintentionally americana trio (Four Families).
In 2016, Rob toured internationally with Radical Face as an opener (The Little Books) and back-up musician.
Rob is a 2017 Community Foundation Individual Artist Grant recipient.
