Singer, producer to discuss ways to break into the music business at Vernon Parish Library event

The following is a news release from the Vernon Parish Library:

Gabriel Farago, a country singer, songwriter and producer, will discuss ways to break into the country music industry at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 17, at the Vernon Parish Library.

The event is free of charge and is open to the public. Registration is not required.

Gabriel Farago arrived in America as a 5-year-old Hungarian refugee. As a young adult, Farago was able to establish himself within the recording community, gaining success as a singer, songwriter and producer.

During the 1980s, Gabriel toured and performed in concert with country performers such as Willie Nelson, Gary Morris, Earl Thomas Conley, Lee Greenwood and Tammy Wynette. In 1989 and 1990, he represented the United States in two major European international country music festivals, performing in Budapest – his former homeland – with EmmyLou Harris.

Several of Farago's records have charted in the "Country Top 100" receiving outstanding reviews from Billboard and CashBox magazines.

In December 1999, he released two Christmas songs, "Santa's Red Dodge Pickup," which became an automotive promotion, and "Two Step Texas Reindeer,'' re-released in 2008, topping the charts in France. Expanding into artist development and record production by the early '90s, Farago's credits include domestic and international TV appearances, corporate sponsorships and video production – most recently at Old Tucson film studios.

He hosts his own radio shows and continues to help advance the careers of singers and songwriters through his CAREER Launcher Program.

Released in early 2008, Gabriel Farago has written a "how to" book titled "Secrets to Success in Country Music," which earned 5-star rating on Amazon. He is also a popular seminar presenter and owner of the Gabriel Music Group.

In addition to his work in the country music industry, Farago answered another calling in April 2006 when he was ordained the Rev. Gabriel Farago, a Pentecostal minister. Six years later, he was ordained as a priest in the Catholic Charismatic Church.

His career seminar provides a highly informative, timely and entertaining program for general audiences. It addresses all genres/styles of music. Sharing his 35 years of 'hands on' experience, Farago's free seminar offers an in-depth 'insider' look at "what it takes" to succeed in the music biz.
