Author, songwriter, and Los Angeles escape artist Gabriel Hart lives in Morongo Valley in California’s High Desert. He is the ringleader of the L.A. based punk Wall of Sound group Jail Weddings, who just completed work on their third album Wilted Eden, to drop in September 2019. Their previous album Meltdown: A Declaration of Unpopular Emotion (2013) was voted Best Album of The Year by L.A. Weekly, followed by Best Band of the Year in 2014.
His debut twin-novel Virgins In Reverse / The Intrusion was published in January 2019 (Traveling Shoes Press), with foreword by surrealist rockabilly provocateur Tav Falco. His chapbook Cinema of Life (2016) and novelette Nothing To See Here (2017) will be incorporated into his desert-themed speculative fiction novel Lies of Heaven, to be released unabridged by Space Cowboy in 2020. Hart’s more erogenous prose appeared in Dutch artist Jan Van Rijn’s book of erotic art In The Woods & On The Heath, alongside passages by Aleister Crowley, Paul Eluard, and Luis Aragon. His short-fiction and poetry have recently been published in Cholla Needles, the Howl 2018 Anthology, the Desert Writers Guild Anthology. He is also regular contributor to L.A. Record, a Los Angeles underground music publication.
