About the Artist

F.A.B.L.E made Chicago headlines with the release of his first published body of work, The Hermit. Soon after, the Chicago Reader featured him once more for his first studio album, DUCKWEED.

Since then, F.A.B.L.E has been laying the groundwork for his future. He’s performed and headlined many Chicago events, including venues such as Mamby on the Beach, The Chicago African Fest, SoFar Sounds Chicago, The Chicago RAGV, House of Vans, The Hideout, Cole’s Bar, Promontory, and Silver Room Block Party, just to name a few. F.A.B.L.E has continued to strive throughout the course of the recent pandemic, most notably, in the release of his two singles, “Ashland ft. Jean Deaux” and “No More Waitin’ ft. Jean Deaux,” and in his partnership with Teach for America to create a heartwarming promotional campaign for the 2021 inauguration.

​His 2021 EP Porcelain Princess was acknowledged by Chicago’s own Music Garage and was credited as one of the strongest bodies of work released that year. By July 2022 the Chicago lyricist strove to solidify his standing in the city’s bustling ecosystem with the release of his full-length sophomore album, Green Room. Featuring musical powerhouses like Silas Short and Add-2, as well as musical collaborations from Jackson Sheppard (Human Bloom), Jake Victor, and Seb Zel; undoubtedly, F.A.B.L.E further weaponizes his innate understanding of musical versatility as tool to break through Chicago’s underground mold.


Tuesdays on the Terrace is presented by Univision Chicago and made possible in part by a generous gift from Luminarts Cultural Foundation.

This event is supported by a Chicago Presents grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events.
