Gabe Larose has been writing songs and performing live in the North Alabama area for over a decade now. During this period, he has also earned two music degrees (Classical Guitar Performance and Music Education). He is a private guitar instructor in the afternoons and plays various kinds of shows at night and on the weekends. SoundTrust is his performing band with John Meshensky/bass, Richard Best/percussion, Nic McClure/guitar and his wife Rachel Larose/vocals focusing on original rock music.

Through the Motions is a product of decades of influence from rock and folk artists such as The Beatles, Jim Croce, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Police, America, Fleetwood Mac, and some early nineties bands. Much diversity is used for the guitar sounds, incorporating acoustic (rhythm strums and fingerstyle), slide, classical, 12 string, and a variety of electric guitars. The vocals are generally double-tracked, displaying heavy influence from recordings in the sixties and seventies. Lyrical themes are often prolific, sometimes borrowing from fictional literature.
